There are three Chasers per team. The Chasers control the [[Quaffle]] and attempt to get it through the goal hoops past the [[Keeper]]. Each goal is worth ten points. This makes them similar to the forwards in football, as the game is generally started with the Referee releasing the Quaffle into the air for the Chasers to try and claim possession of. As such, Chasers are generally considered the most exhilarating to watch by spectators during a Quidditch game, at least until the [[Golden Snitch]] has been spotted. Chasers are typically swift and agile flyers (second only to the Seeker), making females ideal for the position.

==History of the Chaser==
 
The Chaser is the oldest position in the game of Quidditch, as the purpose of the game once consisted solely of scoring goals. They were formerly known as ''Catchers'' in the early days of the game. The one major change to the role of the Chaser was in [[1880s|1884]], when the rules were changed that allowed only one Chaser into the scoring area while trying to score a goal. This was done in an effort to stop [[Stooging]] during a game.

Gryffindor Chaser Ginny Weasley with the Quaffle

"The Chasers throw the Quaffle to each other and try and get it through one of the hoops to score a goal."
Oliver Wood[src]

Chaser is a position in the wizarding sport of Quidditch. There are three Chasers per team. The Chasers control the Quaffle and attempt to get it through the goal hoops past the Keeper. Each goal is worth ten points. This makes them similar to the forwards in football, as the game is generally started with the Referee releasing the Quaffle into the air for the Chasers to try and claim possession of.

History of the ChaserEdit

The Chaser is the oldest position in the game of Quidditch, as the purpose of the game once consisted solely of scoring goals. They were formerly known as Catchers in the early days of the game. The one major change to the role of the Chaser was in 1884, when the rules were changed that allowed only one Chaser into the scoring area while trying to score a goal. This was done in an effort to stop Stooging during a game.

TraitsEdit

Chasers are generally considered the most exhilarating to watch by spectators during a Quidditch game, at least until the Golden Snitch has been spotted. Chasers are typically swift and agile flyers (second only to the Seeker), making females ideal for the position.
