Twin Cities Quidditch Club
Sitting around a table at Buffalo Wild Wings after an intramural quidditch championship tournament, a handful of friends wondered what could they could achieve if they took quidditch to the next level. Then, in the fall of 2013, is when TC Frost, was born.
Official from the beginning, TC Frost has been a member of US Quidditch ever since. US Quidditch is the national governing body for the sport of quidditch, which advances the sport by organizing events and programs that build community and empower all genders to compete together.
A proper community team through and through, TC Frost rallied friends and family, schoolmates and teammates, together to join in the fun. Less than two weeks after forming, TC Frost had an impressive showing at the Midwest Regional Championship, qualifying for World Cup VII. Though as a new team they were expected to return home without any wins, TC Frost trained hard and pulled away from North Myrtle Beach with a 1-3 record, claiming victory over the University of South Florida.
TC Frost continued compounding on its legacy in the following seasons, returning to Nationals the next year and bringing back a noteworthy 3-2 record and an award for the best jerseys. Soon after, TC Frost was recognized by its fellow teams with the #SWAG 2015 USQ Membership Award for the most powerful visual and physical presence. In April of 2016, TC Frost returned to the national stage in Texas, where impressive victories over Louisiana State University, Rollins College, Harvard University, and Tribe Quidditch made up a season high 4-2 record for the tournament.
With each passing season, the team built up its roster and trained harder than the year before. Despite that effort, TC Frost fell just short of the big show once again in its fourth season. Not a group to give up, the team learned from its losses and mistakes, returning to Consolation Cup in Texas with a reignited fire. When all was said and done, TC Frost walked away with a 7-1 record, bowing out to Gainesville Siege in the semifinals.
With the momentum growing, the team entered its fifth season of competitive quidditch with a brand expansion, officially becoming the Twin Cities Quidditch Club, and a new level of determination. Winning the inaugural community division of the Midwest Regional Championship, TCQC elevated its level of competition like never before.
Now, with a sixth season in full swing, Frost has clinched a spot back at Nationals and couldn't be more excited to put in the time and energy in preparation for US Quidditch Cup 12.
