Quidditch Team Practise!
Thu Oct 7, 2010 08:17 (XFF:

The conditions were fairly good for practising in, and for which she was grateful. The sun shone weakly though the misty, cold air and the grass was damp with dew. Lucy had been up since the early hours of the morning sorting out various drills, and wondering which would be best to practise in. Being Captain was so stressful! She just hoped that the team would gel well together, and she had to remember to switch the subs on to practise too. What with her disagreement with Calix earlier and Darla bound to flip at the slightest provacation, she had to be on her toes.

Next to her was a chest, in which the bludgers and snitch sat. The Quaffle was tucked neatly under her arm, as she leant against her broom. A pile of team robes sat neatly folded next to her, ready to dish out at the end of practise, with the teams various surnames sewn onto the back. Trying to control her nerves, Lucy waited until the whole of the team was clustered around her, before speaking loudly and clearly.

"Right, well as you all know we've got our first match coming up very soon. I thought it'd be best that we practise together as a team, and get a feel for how each other plays. Chasers," she looked at Gabriel, Mia and Hector, "you'll need to work as a tight unit if we're going to score goals. Elly and Darla, you two will pair up and look for the Snitch. Hyana and Calix, you'll be switching defending the goals hoops that Mia, Hector and Gabriel will be shooting at." She paused, and search for the last person on the team, and the person who'd she'd have to work the most with...Liana.

"Liana? You'll be with me and we'll be trying to aim the bludgers at the Chasers. Nothing too serious. ...We don't want to knock you off your brooms just before a match, eh?"
She sent a playful smile in their direction, before turning to face the group again as a whole.

"Shall we start?" In one swift arm movement, she chucked the Quaffle to Hector and bent down to release the Bludgers and Snitch.
