CAMP STAFF

Shawn Wierick – Head Coach

Shawn, born and raised in Northwest Arkansas, has been an avid soccer player and runner for most of his life. He began playing soccer as soon as he was able to walk and continued playing throughout his college years at John Brown University.  He began competitive running in 9th grade and has continued since then.  During his undergraduate years, Shawn studied Biology and Chemistry at John Brown where he earned his Bachelor’s Degree. He furthered his scholastic career earning two more degrees, a Masters of Science in Leadership and Ethics, as well as, a Masters of Business Administration. His thirst for knowledge and academic achievement is still evident today as he continues his pursuit of a PhD in Exercise Science.  Though he enjoys the thrill of competition, he finds himself competing less these days as his focus has shifted to coaching his athletes to new levels of achievement.

Along with his academic achievements, Shawn has earned highly accredited coaching certificates from USATF (USA Track & Field) and IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations). His striving for excellence has earned him the USATF Level III certificate, as well as, the IAAF Level V certificate, making him one of only a select group of individuals in the world to receive this distinction. A self-taught swimmer and cyclist, he also holds the USAT (USA Triathlon) Level II certificate, the ASCA (American Swimming Coaches Association) Level II certificate and the USAC (USA Cycling) Level II certificate. Throughout his career, he has had the honor of coaching all levels of athletes, from beginners to elite professionals.

Since its creation in 2012, Triple Threat Racing has been Shawn’s passion, reaching athletes across the nation.

Debra Wierick – Administration, Assistant Coach

Debra grew up playing multiple sports and has continued that tradition throughout her life. She has always been an avid runner & enjoys training more than competitions. However, she has a solid race resume thus far. She found her way to triathlon through cycling, which she began in late 2013.

Her first multisport event was Iron Pig Duathlon in 2014 and she was immediately hooked. Since then she has completed several sprints as well as two half Ironman events (Border Wars & Steelhead) & two Ironman events (Los Cabos & Chattanooga). Her plans are to continue training, stay fit, and participate in whatever events her husband randomly signs her up for.

Debra’s real passion is spending time with her family, staying active through new adventures, and traveling; to races & just for fun. She is married to Shawn Wierick. They have 2 boys, Logan & Liam, and two Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Jada & Roxie.
