Pitching for the Future
Canadian Sport Institute Calgary: – The CSI Calgary seems to have a way of popping up on Google as the place to be if you want to learn about high performance sport in Canada.
So it was for Kenzie Friesen, a 23-year old Saskatchewan native, who found the CSI Calgary while searching online for an ideal place to apply for a practicum placement, the final requirement for her master’s degree in Exercise Science from Liberty University in Virginia, where she has also played NCAA Div. 1 softball for four years.
It was a good match and Friesen has spent the last two and a half months working at the CSI Calgary with the Biomechanics, Performance Analysis and Sport Product Testing team. Her work has focused primarily on a literature review of footwear research, a necessary task to help the team get a new project off the ground.
