USA Racquetball Names Coaching Team for 2023 Pan American Games

Colorado Springs, CO – Today USA Racquetball announced that a Head Coach and an Assistant Coach have been selected who will provide leadership and support to the U.S. Team at the 2023 Pan American Games in Santiago, Chile, this October.

Pablo Fajre, who resides in Tracy, California, is an experienced leader, athlete, team coach, and sports performance trainer. His Racquetball career has spanned three decades with his journey beginning as a member of the Chilean National Team and 16-time Chilean National Singles Champion. In 2009, Pablo moved to the United States to strengthen and develop his business and coaching career. Among other racquetball endeavors since then, he currently serves as Commissioner of the International Racquetball Tour (IRT).

Fajre brings the advantages of experience, knowledge, leadership, maturity, language, familiarity with the destination country, and respect from U.S. athletes that have made him the ideal Head Coach pick. In assuming this new role, Fajre stated, “It is a great honor to represent the United States as the 2023 Pan American Games U.S. Team Head Coach. In my 30 years in Racquetball, I have seen incredibly talented players, both domestically and internationally. I am confident that my experience coaching players on the international stage will transfer well to the success of the U.S. Team in Santiago.”

Jennifer Meyer, selected for the role of U.S. Team Assistant Coach for the Pan American Games, lives in Fruita, Colorado. She possesses a BA in Sociology and an MA in Elementary Education and has been an elementary and middle school educator in nearby Grand Junction for over 25 years.

Meyer is well known in the Racquetball family, initially as an athlete on the U.S. Junior Team in the early 1990’s. She went on to amass vast domestic and international experience as an Assistant Coach of the U.S. Junior Team (2003-present) and in fact coached several of the current U.S. Team members when they themselves were on the Junior Team. Her knowledge, experience, professionalism, and approachable style will serve the U.S. Team Delegation well in Santiago.

Jen offers her thoughts on being selected: “I reiterate what Pablo stated, that it is an incredible honor to be accompanying the U.S. Team to the Pan American Games as their Assistant Coach. I have great love for the sport of Racquetball and for the people who make up our loyal community. I will bring every ounce of my passion, energy, and commitment to our U.S. Team and to Racquetball fans who will be back in the U.S. pulling for our athletes!” 

Now that the coaching staff has been named, the U.S. Team Committee, the Coaches, and the Board of Directors will direct their attention to identifying the athletes (three men/two women) who will represent the United States at the Pan American Games. These athletes will be selected from among the ten U.S. Team members (five men/five women) who qualified for their positions in Tempe (Doubles, in February) and in Chicago/Lombard (Singles, in May). When this process is complete, the athlete delegation will be announced via press release to USA Racquetball members and to the public.
