Muggle Quidditch!

Register Here: https://edgeoforion.com/spring-2019-class-registration/mugglequidditch

Quidditch, a sport in the Harry Potter books, has inspired many people to play Muggle Quidditch, also known as Ground Quidditch, a non-magical (but yet, oh so magical) version of the game. As it is adapted from the game in the book, people have made many different versions. We have a very straightforward version that emphasizes fair play and teamwork! But just because we aren’t flying doesn’t mean it won’t be a sweaty, athletic, magical experience! The past three years have been a smash success and we hope to add more teams this year! This class will culminate in the 4th Annual Chicago Muggle Quidditch Cup where we will be given the opportunity to test our skills against other youth teams!
