QuidditchUK are excited to again announce the return of the Hooch Initiative for the 2017/18 quidditch season. The initiative aims to match new clubs with more established groups from across the country, providing a sustainable foundation for growth and success in the future. This is achieved through the use of short and long term objectives designed to integrate new players into the national Quidditch community.
In previous years, the initiative has resulted in new organisations flourishing after guidance from their parent teams, and previous participants include Warwick Quidditch Club and Bristol Quidditch Club.
To register interest and join this season’s Hooch Initiative as a new club please fill in this form by 30/09/17.

As in previous seasons, QuidditchUK has produced a Hooch Guide for teams taking part which can be found here.
New to the Hooch Initiative for this season, clubs may receive benefits from QuidditchUK by taking part. Mentoring clubs will be offered a partial refund on their team membership fee on completion of a Hooch Hub by 31/01/18. As well as the obvious benefits to training, recruitment, and development, new clubs may also enter a competition for the loan of a set of hoops for their initial season and will receive support from the QuidditchUK PR department to spread their message in the press.
