About Our Coaches

Megan Shea

Megan Shea, in her second year at the helm of the Warriors in 2018 won the conference championship title, first in program history.

Shea enjoyed an impressive debut season, which featured an 11-win campaign and a berth in the Northeast-10 Conference Championship, marking the third consecutive trip to the postseason for the Warriors. Shea guided the Navy and Gold to six all-conference selections, the most for the program since 2013, and saw senior forward Rylie Hammond earn All-American recognition following her 43-point campaign.

During the 2017 season, Shea captured her first collegiate victory as a head coach at Bentley on Sept. 8. Other promiment moments for the first-year coach including upsets of No. 10 Stonehill and a road victory at #3 Saint Anselm, which at the time was the Hawks' first defeat of the year after winning their first 10 games.

Becoming the sixth head coach in program history, Shea arrives on campus after five years of experience as a Division I assistant. Her journey to North Andover was most recently preceded by stops at Northeastern University (2015) and Columbia University (2014); while with the latter, she guided the offense and helped the Lions post a 12-win season, one of the best in program history.

Prior to Columbia, Shea coached for two years (2011-13) at her alma mater, the University of New Hampshire. While Shea was on staff at UNH, the Wildcats won two America East Championships, appeared in a pair of NCAA Tournaments and won America East Coaching Staff of the Year on both occasions.

Shea finished her playing career as one of the best to ever suit up for the Wildcats, ranking seventh all-time in goals scored (42) and sixth in points (99). During her senior season in 2009, Shea scored 23 goals and totaled 55 points, which at the time were the second highest single-season totals in UNH history. That season she was named a NFHCA All-American, NFHCA Northeast Region First Team and was selected as the America East Offensive Player of the Year.

At the national level, Shea has been a member of the coaching staff for USA Field Hockey's High Performance Developmental team. She also has served as a head coach and selector for the national futures programs in the Massachusetts and New York regions.

I love coming to the overnight camp here. The coaches are super helpful with working on my shot and the night activities are so much fun. The other girls and I really bonded on and off the field.
