The idea to hold a Quidditch clinic for teens arose from our local teens' excitement for any and all Harry Potter-related programming. We’ve done numerous Harry Potter-themed programs in the past (typically trivia or costumed events), but had yet to tackle Quidditch. We wanted to engage teens that might have an interest in physical activities as this event was in collaboration with our local YMCA.
We collaborated closely with the Quidditch team at nearby Boston University (BU) to host the clinic for participants in grades 6 through 12, and the event was a huge success.
Teens and tweens learned how to play Harry Potter's favorite sport with Boston University’s Quidditch team.
