The University of Rochester Thestrals have played competitive quidditch since 2009, and since then our club has grown to become one of the biggest club sports on campus! Our travel team is USQ-official, and travels to tournaments both in the Snow Belt and out-of-region, and we won first place in the Northeast Region this fall!
Winning the regional title brought the number one rank back to the snow belt, and this is the first time a Rochester team has won the Northeast region in the history of USQ. We're very excited to go into nationals with this win driving us to be better than ever before!
Thank you so much for your support of the UR Thestrals! This fundraiser is going directly to our nationals costs, particularly our travel costs. The flights that we have booked are costing the team $6381, rounding out to about $319 per person. Our school has generously offered to fund our hotel costs, but as college students, $319 per person is too much for us to expect each player to pay. We're hoping to get the per player cost as low as possible, and your donations will directly help lessen the load for your loyal Thestrals! Thank you again for your generosity!
