University of Delaware field hockey alumna Missy Woodie returned to the program in the fall 2013 as a volunteer assistant coach.  Woodie was elevated to assistant coach status in the summer of 2014.

Woodie rejoined the Blue Hens amidst one of their most remarkable seasons in Delaware History and her contributions were immediately present in the areas of practice, scouting, game day operations and alumni networking. The Hens posted a program-record 17 victories in addition to earning both the Colonial Athletic Association regular season and tournament championships en route to the fifth NCAA Tournament berth in school history.

During Woodie’s first season as a volunteer assistant coach with the Blue Hens, head coach Rolf van de Kerkhof was named both the NFHCA Mid-Atlantic Coach of the Year and CAA Co-Coach of the Year, both accolades that Van de Kerkhof views as coaching staff awards and not just an individual award.

“I am genuinely excited to be back at my alma mater and be able to make an impact on Delaware student-athletes,” commented Woodie.  “To be given an opportunity to learn from such a knowledgeable and passionate coaching staff is a rare treat.”

Woodie was a four-time All-CAA player during her tenure with the Blue Hens from 2007-10.  She saw action in 74 games in a Delaware uniform and tied for seventh all-time in UD history with 20 assists.

“As a program, we are privileged to have Missy back on the coaching staff,” stated Van de Kerkhof.  “After utilizing her qualities as a student-coach in 2011, we are fortunate to welcome her back.  It is very clear that she is not only an established and proud UD field hockey alumna herself, but more importantly, that she truly cares for and wants the best for our program.

Van de Kerkhof continued, “Missy is a very passionate as it relates to coaching field hockey and teaching youngsters.  To be in the position to welcome her energy and drive to our program is something I am very thankful for and as a program we truly appreciate.”

The Fredericksburg, Va. native graduated from Delaware in 2012 with a degree in health and physical education.  Following graduation, Woodie served as a graduate assistant coach at Longwood University, where she earned a master’s degree in adapted physical education.

Prior to returning to the Blue Hens in 2013, Woodie was an assistant coach at West Chester University.
