Quidditch - The Fictional Game Redefining Sport

PRESENTED ON JUN 09, 2016
IN EDMONTON @ VOL 25

"There's no other sport that I know that's as inclusive as quidditch. It's brought nerds to sport—nerds who have never played sports before. It's a gateway drug to sports and a healthy lifestyle."

Quidditch player and Team Canada Head Coach Chris Radojewski dispels some misconceptions about one of the world's fasting growing sports, Quidditch is indeed real—and it's growing, staking a reputation as fast and hard-hitting while paving the way for gender inclusivity in sport.

A very enthusiastic Hironobu Morikawa wants us all to get excited for "Sport Boule," and he does a fantastic job of doing just that through his presentation, explaining what the sport is about, and what he hopes to achieve. 

Please note that this presentation is mostly in English, with some Japanese at the end. Also, a few demonstrations of throws were done in front of the audience -- and successful ones at that, as you'll be able to tell from the cheering.

Not Just an Hour on Sunday

BY DAN DE LEON
@ VOL 3 ON JUN 02, 2015

A pastor's work is never finished. With the socio-religious landscape being altered dramatically by falling church attendance, the rise of social media, and one's faith and spirituality no longer being determined by an hour of worship on a Sunday morning, the demands of pastoral ministry are more complex than ever. Reflecting on ten years of ministry, Dan De Leon gives a glimpse into his experiences as a pastor with hopes of dispelling the myth that ministers only work for an hour on Sundays.

Board With Life

BY AMIR NOOR
@ VOL 6 ON DEC 19, 2015

Amir Noor’s new year’s resolution got him rolling on a long board and he built a passion for the sport from his first board purchase. He took his board from the beach to a park to everywhere he went. When he received his permanent “Africa” scar, Amir temporarily stopped his long boarding days… until, that is, he bought his second board. And from there, his collection of boards continued to grow and his love for it became endless.


Amir wants to share his long board passion saying how it is not a juvenile activity but more than just a simple sport; something even more. He and his friends created a group where they could meet up with people, challenge each other and encourage people to participate in the activity.
