GC 011: Building Relationships with David Benzel

Building Relationships

In this episode of the Gymnast Care Podcast, we’ve brought on a leader in family-sport relationships, David Benzel. David’s desire is to build incredibly strong bonds between parents and their child athletes.

Many times parents stress this relationship, or they don’t understand what their actions might be doing to their relationship. This episode instructs parents on how they should be acting and what things they need to do to build strong relationships at home.

This is a must listen to episode if you want to build a special relationship with your child athletes.
