Kiera Wooden
Camp Director

Kiera Wooden

Kiera Wooden succeeded Deirdre Kane to become the 11th head coach in school history this past August. She spent the last 10 years as the Golden Rams' top assistant.

Read Full Bio

Wooden has been instrumental in the success of the Golden Rams’ program over the past decade, helping West Chester to reach the postseason nine times, including the NCAA Division II Tournament in 2013. She was hired as the first full-time assistant coach in the history of the women’s basketball program prior to the 2004-05 campaign. Prior to that, Wooden spent one season at Division I Longwood University in Farmville, Va.

Wooden has helped to recruit some of the top talent in the state to the Delaware Valley, doing her part to guide the Golden Rams to three 20-win seasons while suffering through just one losing season in that time. She becomes the first African-American head coach to run the women’s basketball program at West Chester University and the 19th African-American female head coach in all of Division II.
The Wilmington, Del., native played all four years at WCU under Deirdre Kane, earning Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Eastern Division first team honors on three different occasions. During her first season in 1999-2000, Wooden, who played under her maiden name, Kiera Manlove, was named the PSAC East rookie of the year.
Wooden was named the team’s MVP on three different occasions and claimed outstanding scholar-athlete honors twice. She currently ranks fifth all-time in scoring with 1,378 points and stands 11th in scoring average at 12.2 points per game.

Wooden holds the school record for field goals made (569), ranks fourth in field goal attempts (1,300), sixth in free throws made (240) and fourth in free throws attempted (408). Wooden also ranks second all-time in WCU history in rebounds (871) and third in steals (259) while her 7.7 rebounds per game average stands fifth.

In her four years as a Golden Rams player, Wooden was the quintessential student-athlete. In addition to her success on the court, she produced a 3.74 grade-point average while earning a degree in Kinesiology. She also secured three minor degrees in nutrition, health and coaching.

Wooden was a four-time PSAC scholar-athlete, an eight-time member of the WCU Athletic Director’s Academic Honor Roll, a PSAC Winter Top 10 selection and a 2002 Arthur Ashe Award winner. She served two years as team captain and was a regular on the Dean’s List.

Wooden currently resides in Wilmington, Del., with her husband, Charles and their son, Christopher. She earned her master’s degree in Sports and Athletic Administration at West Chester University in 2006.

Registration Packet

A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact numbers, and a checklist of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. 


We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

I cannot choose my favorite part.

The entire experience was an awesome time. I had a blast with my 5 on 5 team and my coach was the best. I cannot choose my favorite part. Dallas was the best coach I could have had. She was so helpful, fun, and encouraging. She made the bad times good and the good times great. I also made some new friends that I will remember forever. sky or die!!!!!!!!!!!

I made many memories at this camp this year.

My favorite parts of the camp were playing the games, meeting new friends, and working on different drills to make me a better player. I made many memories at this camp this year. A few memorable experiences were being runner up for the championship and being in the finals for hot shot and free throws

I feel like all the coaches did the best they could for all of the campers (especially with remembering everyone's name because that was amazing), so I really can't think of anything you could improve on. Keep being great! ALL THE COACHES WERE AMAZING! Thanks so much for a great experience.
