After only minimal outdoor experience, and just a few months of indoor training, Dewan has proved to be a standout on her indoor team's defensive unit. "Elise is such a coachable and incredible girl. Whenever I correct her form or give her a specific skill to work on, she really hears me and understands how to execute what I ask of her", says her coach, Lexi Short. Dewan has earned time as a starter and has proven herself to be a valuable player when needed. She brightens the mood of the team, and connects well with her teammates. Her work ethic and enthusiasm, when it comes to the sport, is sure to take her to high places. Although she is mainly a defender, Dewan is very flexible and happy to learn about other positions and even help out in other positions when needed. On offensive corners, she is one of her team's strong shooters, and has caused great success, with the help of her teammates, when executing the plays. As for defensive corners, she has proven time and time again to be a valuable player and teammate on the post. Only a short amount of time into her indoor season, she has made numerous defensive saves, during corner and game play. Elise Dewan plays alongside her sister, Lilly, this indoor season.
