Aaron McDougal: Founder + Head Coach
Head Coach of Hurdles First Track Club since 2005, Coach McDougal began his USATF coaching career nearly 20 years ago. He first became involved in Junior Olympics when his youngest daughter participated in summer track programs in Raleigh. What started out as a couple of afternoons each week has developed into a year-round commitment to developing and supporting youth in their athletic and academic growth. Prior to founding Hurdles First, Coach McDougal offered coaching/training services to individual youth and high school hurdlers.
In addition to coaching track, Coach McDougal enjoys spending time with his family, working on cars and Redskins football. He is also a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do.
