Are there preventive measures I can take to reduce my chances of injury playing soccer?

Yes. Strengthening your legs and core and increasing flexibility by working with a trainer and doing weight training can reduce injuries. Specific to soccer, eccentric exercises can reduce hamstring injuries and proprioceptive and neuromuscular training has been shown to reduce ACL injuries in women.
Conditioning. Sport specific conditioning including cardio training, strength training and agility training. Even the best trained athlete can sustain injury. I see division i athletes frequently tear their acl playing soccer. These are some the very best trained athletes.
