Canada national quidditch team


The Canadian national quidditch team made its debut in 2012 at the IQA Summer Games in Oxford, UK where it placed 4th of 5 teams. The team once again represented Canada at the 2014 IQA Global Games in Burnaby, BC on July 29, 2014 where it took third place, coming behind the United States and Australia, respectively.

The national team made its debut in 2012 at the International Quidditch Association (IQA) Summer Games in Oxford, UK. The team featured players from Ontario, British Columbia and Québec. The team was created just two months before the championships and thus had no tryouts and was composed of players who were able to travel to the UK to compete. The tournament format began with a round robin between all five participating teams (USA, Canada, France, Australia, and the UK) and then a ranked bracket. After the round robin, Team Canada was seeded second; however, after back-to-back losses to France and Australia, they fell to fourth place.
The selection process for the 2014 Global Games involved rigorous tryouts for potential players. Tryouts saw 74 potential candidates between video submissions and two tryouts: one in Eastern Canada in Kingston, ON and one in Western Canada in Vancouver, BC. Players who were unable to attend either the East or West try-outs were able to submit video tryouts. The selected team features players from a variety of backgrounds and university teams, notably University of British Columbia, University of Ottawa, University of Toronto, Université de Montréal, McGill University, Queen’s University, Carleton University, Tufts College, and Kansas University.
The 2014 Canadian national team competed on July 19, 2014 at the Burnaby Lake sports complex in Burnaby, British Columbia against 5 other announced national teams: Belgium, Italy

, Australia, the UK, and the USA. The Global Games is a biennial event run by the International Quidditch Association that, unlike regular-season IQA games, features national teams from quidditch-playing nations instead of collegiate or community teams. Canada took third place in the 2014 IQA Global Games following the United States and Australia, respectively.
The 2014 team coaches were selected by IQA Canadian Director Tegan Bridge after an application process. Hugh Podmore of Valhalla Quidditch was selected as Head Coach, and Rebecca Alley of the University of Ottawa GeeGees was chosen as Assistant Coach. The roster for the 2014 Global Games was announced on May 18, 2014.
There was no selection process for the 2012 team, which was composed largely of individuals who were able and willing to travel to Oxford, England to play.
The 2012 Summer Games jerseys were designed by David Danos. After the games, they were discontinued due to their similarity to Hockey Canada’s logo.
Quidditch Canada announced on May 29, 2014 that Adam Robillard’s jersey submission had been selected featuring a stylized maple leaf on a black background.
Team Canada made their debut at the 2012 IQA Summer Games where they placed fourth of five teams. Due to how the team was chosen (those who could afford to make it over having try-outs) and the fact that the team had a smaller roster of newer players, the Canadian team had difficulties keeping to pace with the other teams towards the end of the day. However, only Team France and Team USA posed formidable threats to the Canadian team where the loss against Team Australia was due to a withering team and a lost snitch catch in the end.
At the 2014 IQA Global Games, however, Team Canada was a favoured team. Ultimately, Team Canada lost against both the US and Australia, coming close in the game against Team Australia, ending in third place.
