Kent State Soaring Black Squirrels

Quidditch is a mixed-gender contact sport with a unique mix of elements from rugby, dodgeball, and tag. A quidditch team is made up of seven athletes who play with brooms between their legs at all times. While the game can appear chaotic to the casual observer, once familiar with the basic rules, quidditch is an exciting sport to watch and even more exciting to play. The Kent State Soaring Flashes are the official team for Kent State University and compete with other schools in the Northeastern Ohio/ southern Michigan area. One hope of the Kent State team is to become a recognized official team by the governing body of all college Quidditch teams called US Quidditch (or USQ ) for short.

The Kent State Soaring Flashes is the only quidditch team at Kent State University. We follow the rules and guidelines set out by the Us Quidditch Rulebook.
