      We will have an open period at the end of every Sunday practice. Please let us know when you can make it, and we will get you acclimated.

      Usually our practices are every Sunday at 1pm in the same place as this event, unless we're away for a tournament.

  • Paige

    I'm a newbie to quidditch, and I'd love advice about how to train on my own over the summer (using these tryouts as motivation to finally get in shape). I was also curious if you guys will be playing any pickup games over the summer that prospective team members could watch and/or participate in, since I've never actually seen a game of muggle quidditch played, and know the rules only in a theoretical sense. Thanks!

      Paige (and everyone else interested in getting in shape for Quidditch). There is a great smartphone app called you are your own gym. It's $2.99 and its a great workout app. If you have any questions on it email me at [masked]

    • Jayne G.

      thanks

      August 22, 2013

    • smartpenguin78

      We will try everyone at all positions, but we will be looking at what the best fit for each individual will be.

      August 22, 2013

  • Will

    Do you guys play with having a designated person as the snitch?

    August 20, 2013

    • ralph

      yes I could let you meet the person who is in charge of the snitch program in the north east . We know big people on this team . They would be glad to have you and your going to love it .

      August 22, 2013

    • smartpenguin78

      Will, we would love to have you come out and attempt Snitching, though if you have the skill set for a snitch, we would also like to see what you can do as a Seeker. (Most teams provide a Snitch at events. :) )

      August 22, 2013

  • Jenna

    Maybe going depends on work

    June 5, 2013

    • Megan

      If you can't make it that day but want to play, you should still come to practice some other time! :)

      June 30, 2013

    • smartpenguin78

      Megan is totally right, just let us know and come to one of our regular practices!

      August 22, 2013

  • Jayne G.

    August 7, 2013

    • ralph

      I would bring one just incase but we probably have enough or people would lend you one

      August 7, 2013

    • smartpenguin78

      Please bring your own broom!
