Hogwarts Teams

Quidditch is big at Hogwarts. Each House fields a team, which includes the seven players and often one or two reserve players as well. The teams have a team captain who not only plays but also acts as coach. The captain leads practices, devises strategies, and sees to the induction of new players into the team. Quidditch tryouts are typicallyduring the second week of the school year, although the exact day and time are up to the captain to determine; students who wish to play for their Houses are asked to talk to Madam Hooch. The Quidditch season at Hogwarts starts in October, with the first games early in November. Madam Hooch is the resident Quidditch expert. The Bludgers, Quaffles, and Snitch are stored securely in her office between games and she acts as referee for the matches. Team practices are scheduled by individual captains (they "book the field" to reserve it for their own team to practice.) Most teams practice almost every day, after school or in the evenings.

Each House has fourteen players, second-year and up (an exception being made in Harry Potter's case). Quidditch being such a physical contact sport, players tend to suffer everything from bumps and bruises to broken bones. Hence, there is a necessity for a Reserve squad to step in if a player becomes incapacitated. Otherwise, the team would have to forfeit the match. source
