A Petition to make Quidditch a sanctioned sport to the Texas U.I.L. Committee

We, the undersigned, propose that the University Interscholastic League Committee of the state of Texas make Quidditch a U.I.L. sanctioned sport for the state of Texas.  We have submitted a formal application and rule book to the committee.  The following signatures to this petition support this proposal.

Please complete the on-line form completely to insure a valid signature.  This information will not be released or shared with anyone outside the U.I.L. committee and is being collected solely for the purpose of making Quidditch a U.I.L. sanctioned sport.

 

History:   On June 14, 2011, the students and teacher listed below spoke before the U.I.L. committee and asked that they consider making Quidditch, an emerging sport that is sweeping high schools and colleges across the nation, a U.I.L. sanctioned sport.  The committee vote was two against approval with the remainder of the committee abstaining with a request for more information with regards to student interest in the state of Texas.  The committee response was very favorable to the proposal, but requested that we submit signatures from students, teachers, sponsors, coaches, and administrators from between 100 and 150 Middle and High Schools across the state of Texas.  Therefore, we have created this website for persons to submit their name for inclusion in this petition.

    As a student, I would really like to see this become a recognized sport and I would love to create a team with fellow students.
