"Keeper defence; the Keeper holds the broom horizontally with one hand and one foot curled around the handle, while keeping all limbs outstretched. The Starfish without stick should never be attempted."

A Chudley Cannons Keeper performing the Starfish and Stick

The Starfish and Stick is a Quidditch tactic employed by Keepers. The Keeper grips their broomstick with one hand and one foot hooked around the shaft, while stretching their body and other limbs out, effectively blocking all three of the goal posts that they are defending, in an effort to block the Quaffle. The Starfish without the stick is not recommended.[1]
