"If this is what they do when they get into the semis, imagine what we're facing if they reach the final. I'm thinking Security Trolls."
—A senior member of the International Confederation of Wizards' Quidditch Committee on the American team's celebrations following their win against Liechtenstein in the 2014 Quidditch World Cup.[src]

The American National Quidditch team is the national Quidditch team of the United States of America.

Team Special Move

Main article: Harlem Shuffle
The U.S.A. has a basketball-style Team Special Move named The Harlem Shuffle (20 points). The name is taken from the popular No-Maj basketball team The Harlem Globetrotters, who are best known for their skilful and entertaining play involving a ball of similar size to the Quaffle, during games.

Chasers Green and Muntz with Seeker Singleton

The Harlem Shuffle plays out as follows: First, Chaser Gianni Fedele spins it atop his finger, shouting to his fellow Chasers, "Get ready, guys!" He passes the Quaffle immediately on to Robert Green, who dribbles it back and forth on his broomstick for a few moments, then passes to Debbie Muntz. Muntz plays piggie-in-the-middle with the other team's Chaser(s), while sliding the Quaffle down her outstretched arms and behind her head. She throws it to Fedele, who throws it to Green, who scores by throwing the Quaffle in from behind the goal post after diving off of his broomstick, while falling. Muntz takes it and scores once again, the other team's Keeper diving off their broom, but failing to make the save.[1]


Quidditch World Cup - American Quidditch Stadium 01

The American Quidditch team's National Quidditch Stadium

The American team's national stadium appears to be on a New England farm, with a barn behind one goal and a road leading to a hilltop Victorian mansion behind the other, heavily implying that the stadium and field are privately owned (a possible nod to America's emphasis on private, rather than state-run enterprise). The field seems to always be dark with its cloudy grey sky and Hallowe'en theme. It is covered with jack-o-lanterns, surrounded by autumn-colored trees, and its buildings are quite old, being New England Victorian in architecture. The bottom of the Quidditch pitch is covered with dirt and quite a few weeds and mowed-down crops, and the pitch itself sports line markers similar to those seen on an American football field circa 1920. Given the farm buildings and the ploughed dirt nature of the field, it is likely that the field is used to grow crops in the off-season. The side banners have red and white stripes and blue stars.


Their uniform consists of a navy blue vest, white shirts with red stripes and white pants.
