WEEK #17: AVERY R.
Please tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Avery Reeves. I grew up in a small town, Mount Forest ON. While growing up I played a variety of sports such as soccer, baseball, lacrosse, ringette, hockey, incline skating and field hockey. Although, I loved the game of hockey and focused my training on hockey.
I am just finishing up my last year at York University, I will graduate with a degree in Kinesiology and Health Sciences. While at York I was on the Varsity Hockey Team, where I was part of the leadership team for the last 2 seasons. I finished my varsity career at York on a high note. This was the first year that I have made it to playoffs while I have been with York. We also earned our spot at the U Sports Championship in PEI. This year I was awarded with the Sport Council Award for my contributions towards varsity athletics, demonstrating leadership, dedication, enthusiasm and participation in all aspects of sport council.
Outside of sport I love to spend time outdoors; paddleboarding, kayaking, camping and hiking. I am also very passionate about health and fitness. In 2017, I created my own personal training business called “Reeves Fitness Coaching”. I love educating others about fitness and helping them achieve their goals.
How has sport helped you become a better leader?
