Coach’s Bios

Hello! My name is Megan Ellefson, and I am so excited to be apart of the BLPA family! I am originally from the Bay Area in California, but moved to Colorado Springs to be with family. My cheerleading career began at the age of eight, and I cheered until I graduated high school. I received offers from teams to cheer in college, but I loved coaching more so I decided to go down that path. I began coaching a youth program at fifteen years old and at eighteen I began coaching a varsity high school team. I have experience with middle school, high school, and all-star competitive teams. I started the competition team at the school I've coached at the past four years and I am proud to say we have been National Finalists four years in a row, and became National Champions in 2019. I am looking forward to this next chapter with BLPA and hope  to get this program recognized at a national level! I cannot wait to begin, and build this spirit program together. When I am not coaching I like to spend time with my family and travel. I enjoy camping, being out on a lake, and exploring the outdoors! I do have a degree in Early Childhood Education and spent the last eleven years teaching preschool. I became a Director six years ago and ran a preschool in California. Again, I am so happy to be here and excited to call BLPA my new cheer home!
