Welcome to our Kidditch School Sports Program
Hello Head Teachers and PE Leads.
Similar to all of our school sports programs, our quidditch program (called Kidditch) also aims to give children a “WOW, that was an amazing experience, can we do it again?“.
To book a Kidditch (Quidditch for Kids) program for your school please email us for a quote. If you are a parent and want to book a Quidditch birthday party for your child, or if you want to find out more about our holiday sports camps, please email us for more information.
What is Kidditch?
Kidditch is quidditch for kids and is a Sporting Dreams School Sports Program. We introduce children to the fun new sport of quidditch and teach children how to play and understand the basic rules, positions and jobs of the players.
Many schools have booked in our KIDDITCH program to help support and enrich various subjects of their curriculum, especially PE and literacy where children have read the Harry Potter books and want to learn how to play a muggles game of quidditch.
We have designed the program specifically for primary schools and cater for normal class sizes of up to 30 children. Please email us for a full list of services and programs we offer to schools.
What is Quidditch?
Quidditch was created by J. K. Rowling in her Harry Potter novels and has now developed into a real life sport with even Great Britain (Team UK) having a team and who play in the Quidditch World Cup.
Quidditch is a mixture of Handball, Dodgeball, Tag-Rugby and Football. But there are many more transferable skills children develop by playing. Look at these video’s explaining how to play the fun new sport.
What Skills do the Children Develop?
Before playing a quidditch match, our instructor will teach children the roles of each position. We teach children how to be;
- A Chaser
- A Beater
- A Keeper
- A Seeker and how to catch and how to be the Golden Snitch
- Once children have learned these skills, we then teach them how to play a quidditch match
Children play a number of fun games and activities to introduce each position and to help build up the momentum of the lesson which in turn speeds up children’s learning and how much fun they have. We have various lessons plans to suit children from 4-12 years old. Usually 45 minutes to 1 hour is a good amount of time to go through the 3 stages of acquiring the knowledge, skills and understanding of how to play quidditch. These stages are;
- Stage 1: Learn the basic skills
- Stage 2: Learn the positions and roles
- Stage 3: Learn how to play a match
Our approach to teaching children quidditch:
If you haven’t already, please take a look at our about us page, our history, and our foundations, where you can read a little about our coaching methods, our approach and our use of discipline. These are vitally important to create and maintain a fun, safe and efficient learning environment for the children.
Our instructors approach to teaching quidditch is firm but fair and in a fun way. We always say to the children that ‘we want you to have an amazing time but if you have poor listening skills then you will have a poor lesson, but if you have amazing listening skills then you will have an amazing lesson’.
Like all of our school sports programs, we try our very best to get the balance right between making lessons fun whilst maintaining good child behaviour management. We usually find it a helpful tool to show children a quick video of the games they will play along with adults playing in the quidditch World Cup. Please take a closer look at our history and about us page.
