  • Dragon training. There's literally an entire movie explaining how to do it.
  • Wand dueling. The best way to settle any score
  • Rollerball. The pinnacle of human athleticism
  • Pod racing. It's kind of like NASCAR, but not.

  • Live Action Role Play, more commonly known as larping. Yup, it's a thing.
  • Quidditch. If it was good enough for Harry and his friends, it's good enough for America.
  • Baseketball. It's the sport of the people.
