Beatriz couldn’t wait for the Quidditch tryouts and she spotted the sign-up sheet straight away as she entered Cascade Hall for breakfast. Immediately she was scrambling for a quill, eager to get her name inked onto the list.

Beatriz Couthon, 1st year, Pecari, Chaser

She knew that the Chaser position tended to be pretty popular, but there were three spots to fill so in that sense it was less competitive. Beatriz wasn’t worried about the tryouts and fancied her chances. She doubted there were many other students who had dedicated as many hours to honing their Quidditch skills as she had. It was a small school after all - how many of them were likely to be future Quidditch stars? Admittedly at this point in time Beatriz couldn’t actually know whether she would become a future world star but she knew from competing with her team back at home that she was good, and she would do anything it took to achieve her Quidditch dreams.

Beatriz couldn’t wait to get down to the Quidditch pitch for the tryouts and show off her talents but what she really had to look forward to were the matches. Although it was a shame that there weren’t going to be house teams, she was excited at the idea of playing other schools and this likely meant there would be a higher standard of playing. There was no way she wasn’t getting on the team, even if this narrowed her chances. Not getting on the school team would be very disappointing and something that had the potential to make her transfer to her brother’s school in Québec. It might seem an extreme reaction but even at the young age of eleven, Beatriz knew that Quidditch was her future and there was no way she was going to achieve that if she only got to play in the holidays. Obviously she trained regularly by herself but to really make improvements she needed others to practise with and play against.
