Default Training Area


The Training Area is where Flying classes are usually held, but is otherwise open to anyone at any time, curfew and individual restrictions permitting. While flying is possible here, this area is not a pitch and should not be treated as such. There is space for practicing flying technique - tricks, control, even casual racing - just be mindful of those around you both in the air and on the ground. A large running track circles the centre green, where there's plenty of space for whatever non-flying training takes your fancy; if you need any specific equipment, Mr Kazmi may be able to arrange that for you. Sitting here to relax is also fine, as long as you don't get in the way of anyone using the area for its intended purpose. Benches are spread evenly around the outside of the running track; sit here if the centre green is busy.

Every square foot of ground in the Training Area has been bespelled with a neat little charm which cushions the ground in the event of a sudden, high velocity impact; this prevents serious injury in the case of a fall during classes or free-flying, but shouldn't affect running or other grounded exercises. The charm is effective, but not foolproof, so... don't behave like a fool.

A high fence surrounds the entire area, so that the only way inside is through the proper entrance. As the flying information board can be found here, this leaves few excuses for using the Training Area without being aware of the rules. Namely: respect each other, be sensible, don't put yourselves in danger, tidy up after yourselves, and, should there be any incidents, find and inform Mr Kazmi (or another member of staff) as soon as possible.

Mr Kazmi's office overlooks the training area from its high up vantage point, but it's difficult to tell exactly when he's got eyes on you, if he's not already out here supervising. Probably a good idea to behave regardless.

They were due for a rematch. After Apollo won their last race, Margaret had been practicing. She'd have been practiced even if she won, of course, flying was important and winning wasn't everything. Well, winning a casual race with a friend wasn't everything. Well... she liked flying. Even if it wasn't a competition. Which, today, it was.

She arrived at the entrance to the training area and checked her watch. Where was Apollo? Being late to a race wasn't the way you wanted to start.

Was Apollo nervous about this re-match? Absolutely! Mamie had grown - both physically and as a quidditch player. She was now an under 17 player, which was as close to pro as they could get for their year.

For the record, he wasn't late. The match wouldn't start until he arrived, so even if he arrived at 10 minutes after, he wasn't late. But for the record, he arrived two minutes before ten, so in theory he was early and in his defense he did have a lot farther to walk on a Saturday morning.

"Hey, Mamie, Happy Saturday! Do we need a referee?" Apollo asked because it had been something he'd been thinking about but hadn't actually voiced.

Maybe he wasn't late but she'd already beaten him once today. By showing up first. And that was just the sort of confidence boost she needed, after losing their race last year.

"Hi, Apple!" she said brightly. "Why would we need a referee?" Was he planning to cheat? Did he think she was going to cheat? She was pretty sure she could win, fair and square. Unless, like, Apollo had gotten a fancy new broom or even faster over the summer or something. Which, while possible...didn't matter. She wasn't going to cheat anyway. That would ruin the fun of competition.

It was a weird thing, Mamie still calling him by that nickname and Apollo supposed it was something that he had grown immune to. He frowned when she questioned his suggestion because no he would not be cheating he doubted she would either as a hufflepuff and yet was still something that crossed his mind. "I just... figure, maybe, well, you know... so we can focus on the race and not on who won? Might be better to have a third party here as a deciding factor. I mean i guess, it's just for fun anyway and we don't need one..." He was rambling. Was that because he was nervous? Of course not.

Okay, maybe he was a little nervous.

She didn't think it was weird. Sometimes she called him by his real name, sometimes she started it out with the emphasis on the wrong syllables and figured pretending she'd planned the nickname all along was the least embarrassing course of action.

He did seem...very concerned about the referee. And she didn't mind having a referee, except that nobody else was here. If he'd just...brought a friend, to referee their race, then it wouldn't be a discussion. "Do you want me to go see if Mr. Kazmi is busy?" He was right, it was just for fun, but he seemed very worried about it. And it wouldn't be fun if Apollo was worried. Plus, Kazmi would probably be the best referee, after all. With his expert broom knowledge.

Maybe they should race to Kazmi's office as a warm-up.

Huh. Maybe he should have brought a friend. Except 10am on a Saturday, was a difficult time to find someone to come ref a broom race. That and the more pressing reason was that he wasn't sure that he had that many friends. Bella probably would have done it, or maybe Maya, but as they were in Slytherin, he hadn't thought to plan that far in advance to ask them. Also they might have showed bias toward him, since he wasn't sure they knew Mamie much, and that would have defeated the whole purpose of the ref.

He shook his head. "No, i don't think ... we shouldn't bother him on the weekend. I guess we don't need one." It was just a fleeting thought he'd had on the walk from the towers and he probably shouldn't have vocalized it. "So uh... just to the end of the training area and back?"

No referee brought along, and he didn't want to ask Mr. Kazmi either? Margaret thought maybe Apollo hadn't really wanted a ref. Maybe he just wanted to distract her. Get her thinking about something else before the race. Probably not, she didn't think he was that manipulative. She shrugged. "Okay, no ref. Like last time."

She grinned brightly. "Yes, one lap? It'll be like a sprint!" But flying. Instead of swimming or running. She was definitely better at short distances than long ones. Her starts and stops had gotten a lot better since she'd started her keeper training. Agility, it was called. She mounted her broom. "Do you want to call the start?"

If he would have thought about it, then perhaps he would have done that to distract her, but as it was ... Apollo was more the type to be accidentally manipulative. Cunning? He didn't know her. If anything, he was probably more manipulative to himself than others, which he wasn't sure really counted. "Exactly. Make it like last time. Except you've had a whole lot more practice, Miss Under 17."

A sprint. That ought to get the blood flowing, he followed her lead in mounting his broom after and his eyes widened. Was she trying to distract him with the counting?? She wouldn't do that though, yet just to be safe, "Maybe we should call the start together. On the count of three. One .... two..." He started and waited for her to join in, as he prepared to kick off.

Miss Under 17. She liked the sound of that. Beaming, she nodded. "Okay, together." She counted with him, shouting out once they got to the end. "Three! Go!!" And off Margaret went, kicking off the ground and leaning forward to race around the track.

She really wanted to win, but, like, keepers didn't usually have to sprint. So it didn't really matter. Except that Apollo one last time and she was bitter. She really didn't have that much more practice than him, after all. It wasn't like she'd ever played seeker.
