I have chosen to write my personal project about the prevention of injuries in soccer because it is a topic which I am very interested in. I watched and played soccer since I was around 5 years old, likewise, this was a perfect fit for me because it’s very personal.

I felt that contacting a player in the sport made it much more interesting and simpler than just reading endless articles because I knew that I could ask questions that would be answered. Physical Education, U.S. History, and English were classes that helped me use thinking strategies/skills while creating my project because Physical Education has a direct correlation to the prevention of injuries in soccer since we do warm-ups every day and we are taught up technique in sports. U.S. History and English made it way easier to analyze and pull out information while researching subtopics for my product due to the fact both classes deal with analyzing and interpreting information from articles.
