Hawkshead Formation

Three Chasers performing the Formation

The Hawkshead Attacking Formation is a Quidditch tactic named after the hawk, invented by Darren O'Hare.[1] The team's Chasers fly together in an arrowhead towards the opposition goalposts. The tactic intimidates the opposition, and is effective at forcing players to move aside to allow a scoring opportunity.[2]

History

In 1994, Harry Potter's Omnioculars identified the Irish National Quidditch team using this tactic during the 1994 Quidditch World Cup final.[3]
