Name: Megan Andrews
Education: BS- Movement Science, Hobart and William Smith Colleges '10, Doctorate of Physical Therapy- Sacred Heart University '14.
Years at Eliteam: 10! ... Four as a camper, two as a counselor, and four as a coach.
Skiing Background: Strapped on skis at the age of 3. Raced for Stratton Training Center for 6yrs. Just recently moved home from Utah where I got to experience some amazing big mountain skiing.
Other sports/activities I enjoy: Anything outdoors! Always trying new sports to keep things fresh. I enjoy lacrosse, field hockey, rock climbing, running, and playing with my dog outside!
As an Athlete, I am inspired by... my friends. We encourage each other to get out and try new things. I have a tendency to surround myself with people who push me to my limits and help me to grow as an athlete. We're there to support each other and have fun!
Coaching Experience: 6yrs coaching the freestyle team at Stratton Mountain and many years coaching various camps for kids from Eliteam to summer field hockey and lacrosse camps.
Favorite Eliteam Memory: As a camper…Finally catching the trapeze (I was a bit of a head case and always psyched myself out, but finally caught it!)
As a coach...when a camper accomplishes something they didn’t think that they could do. I love their look of shock and excitement that they actually did it!
Favorite Eliteam dance move: All of them!!! The dance is one of my favorite parts of camp :)
Favorite Eliteam workout: Circuits! I love the energy in the room and everyone working so hard to push themselves and then walking out drenched in sweat.
What I love most about Eliteam: I love the excitement I get every year in the weeks leading up to camp and the first day meeting everyone. I love everything about camp which is why I keep coming back!
Unusual Talent: The Eliteam pretzel. It requires a bamboo pole, balance, coordination and flexibility.
Personal/Fitness Goals: My fitness goal this year is to continue with Crossfit training and to work on my flexibility.
