Doug Fairchild -
Secretary, youth, high school
I have been a multi-sport participant for over thirty years. Triathlon, Duathlon, Adventure Race, Xterra, ultra-distance swimming, cycling, running, and more have all been attempted along with Olympic Weightlifting and numerous other sports.
Some of my certifications are: USA Triathlon, USA Cycling, USA Weightlifting coach; USAT Referee, CrossFit and Russian Kettlebell Challenge Instructor and Fellowship of Christian Athletes Huddle Leader. I’m also a member of, and an official for, USA Track & Field. Along with being an educator, I coach a High School bicycling team, Jetstream, which won the 2008 Road Bike State Championship and the 2008 Mountain Bike State Championship and series for both. In my spare time I coach a large contingent of exceptionally talented athletes who compete in triathlons from sprint to Ironman distances.
Previously I have served on the SMW Regional Board, was a past State Director of the National Strength & Conditioning Association / Texas; have coached at the US Olympic Festival, Pan-Am Games, NACACI Championships; American Open and others. My Olympic Weightlifting teams have won the Texas HS State Championship eight times and several of my athletes have been selected for World / Olympic teams by the USOC.
My passion lies with watching young athletes blossom, develop and bloom into America’s best. Setting up a ‘feeder system’ for USAT by developing youth is one of my goals.
