Cypress Christian School is pleased to announce that Chrissy Woodward has been selected as our next varsity volleyball coach.
Coach Woodward grew up in a small Southeast Texas town called Tarkington Prairie, where she played volleyball, basketball, tennis and ran track in high school. Her school had a very successful volleyball program and made it to the state finals her senior year. She received a full volleyball scholarship to play for Sam Houston State University, receiving several All-Conference awards and All-Tournament selections as well as Most Valuable Player from 2004-2006. She still holds a few collegiate records. During her time in college, she coached a local club team, which started her coaching journey.
Coach Woodward graduated from Sam Houston State University in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree in health science. After graduation, she coached for two years in her hometown and continued coaching club volleyball. In 2008, she became the head volleyball coach at New Caney High School and later, Porter High School, taking both teams on playoff runs.
In 2010, after meeting her husband, she made Cypress her home. In 2013, she started and grew a club which had several successful seasons. After the birth of her second child, she became the head volleyball coach at Cypress Ranch High School. There, her teams made several playoff runs, including two undefeated district championship seasons. She was named Coach of the Year for two consecutive seasons for District 16-6A. In 2021, she started a club for the Cypress area that focuses on younger athletes and developing a love for the game of volleyball. She has also had the privilege of coaching many collegiate-bound athletes during her time as a coach.
Coach Woodward finds joy in coaching and teaching and loves being a wife to Sean and mom to three beautiful children (Tate (9), Carsyn (5), and Mack). Family has always been important to her, and she remembers fondly growing up attending her local Baptist church with her grandparents on Sundays, followed by family dinners to end each week. The Woodward family currently attend Good Shephard Methodist Church. They are looking forward to becoming a part of the Warrior Nation as they continue their faith journey. Cypress Christian School is excited to have them as a part of our family! Please help us in making them feel welcome!
