Coach Fassler grew up in Lafayette, Colorado and graduated from Centaurus High School in 2007. His own Track career began in elementary school and continued through college at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon. During his time as a student-athlete, Coach Fassler competed in the USATF National Championship three times (once for Cross Country, twice for Track,) Colorado High School State Championships for both track and cross country for all four years of high school, then went onto PSU with an athletic scholarship.
While attending college, Coach Fassler coached two years of elementary-aged Track & Field, Flag Football, and Basketball. In addition, he taught an after-school leadership program. Once he moved back to Colorado in 2014, he coached Track & Field as well as Cross Country throughout Boulder County for eight years. After 10 years of coaching experience, Coach Fassler saw a need for a club level Track & Field development program in the greater Broomfield/Lafayette/Erie area.
Coach Fassler and his wife, Stephanie, live in Erie with their three young children--Owen, Sophie, & Cole. When not on the track or at other local races, you can find the Fassler family at Owen's soccer games, Sophie's dance recitals, or out fishing and enjoying Colorado.
From Coach Fassler : "I coach to be a positive role model for young student-athletes. I believe communication, responsibility, respect, teamwork, dedication, work ethic, and resiliency are key leadership traits which propel you to be successful in both sports and life. I approach coaching with enthusiasm and I encourage each student-athlete to lead with their best effort."
WHY NAMED ROCK CREEK TRACK CLUB?
Inspired in November 2021 while running on the Rock Creek trail, the Trail runs through parts of Superior, Louisville, Broomfield and Lafayette where it joins with Coal Creek Trail and continues to Erie.
As a member of the running community I have always wanted to bring a program to these surrounding communities where I grew up. I felt the need to start a Track and Field program for young and experienced competitors, and look forward to the years ahead.
