A Little About Susan Salzbrenner and her Fit Across Cultures Podcast
If you’ve ever thought about playing your sport abroad, Susan is the one to check with first — about everything related to that venture. As one of her former clients says, “You may know all about playing your sport, but there is a lot more to being an athlete, than what you do on the field.”
Each of her podcasts explores a different part of being an athlete. And, even if you’re not immediately thinking about playing overseas, our hockey listeners — from coaches to parents to older players — should discover a lot about sports participation at a high level.
