What are your personal goals as an athlete for this upcoming soccer season? My goals this season are to improve my fitness and to mold well with the team.
What academic program are you taking and why? I am in Kinesiology because throughout my years playing sports I have often found myself at physiotherapy, this has sparked an interest in athlete rehabilitation for me.
