Ethan Larsen | Sport2021
Born and raised in the beautiful city of Tauranga, I have always had a passion for sports. From a young age, I got my hands into everything from table tennis, golf, hockey rugby, athletics and so much more. Although I have excelled at all sports, my serious passion lies within hockey and golf and am looking to develop my skills and knowledge to turn my passion to a profession. Not only am I looking to develop my game in both codes, I believe playing sport has helped me develop new relationships and encourages positive wellbeing as I thoroughly enjoy the competition aspect and being able to play organised sports. Like many other athletes, I have been an extremely hard worker, both on and off the field. Having only made the academic national standard in year 9, I have always had to work hard for my grades and now I am currently a university student at the University of Waikato, somewhere I never thought I would be as a kid. I am currently studying Sports Development and Coaching with a minor in Business Management. I look to use this degree to provide back to the community in coaching and developing youth athletes as I have been inspired by my own coaches and look to do the same for other athletes. I am really looking forward to 2021 and all that comes with it, hopefully, that means winning a few championships.
