Meet Camp Coaches

Amy Bokker
Camp Director

Amy Bokker

Amy Bokker is Stanford’s Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach and Assistant Coach for the US Elite National Team.  Since Bokker joined the Cardinal for the 2009 season, she has established Stanford as the West’s premier program, consistently ranked among the country’s Top 25.

Read Full Bio

Bokker ranks first all-time among Stanford coaches in winning percentage (.710) and is three shy of tying Michelle Uhlfelder (2001-07) for the most victories. Bokker is 81-34 in six seasons.

Bokker has led Stanford to four Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Tournament titles in six seasons and reached the championship game in all six – extending Stanford’s streak of
conference title game appearances to 17.

She also has coached Stanford to four NCAA tournament appearances in five years, and in 2013 coached Stanford into the second round for the first time in school history.

Bokker has coached three All-Americans (five total honors), 14 players to 19 IWLCA All-Region selections, 26 to 43 All-MPSF selections, 19 to 21 All-MPSF Tournament selections, four MPSF Player of the Year recipients (five awards total), four MPSF Tournament MVPs and one MPSF
Newcomer of the Year.

In 2013, Bokker helped coach the U.S. national team to the 2013 FIL Women’s World Cup title. After joining the staff as an assistant coach in 2010, Bokker helped coach the U.S. to its seventh world title as the Americans outscored opponents by a combined 127-34 over seven games in
Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.

Bokker assisted the Canadian national team in the 2009 FIL World Cup in Prague, Czech Republic, where it captured the bronze medal, the first medal the country had won in 28 years.

Building a program was nothing new to Bokker. She was in a similar situation when she took over the George Mason program in 1998 in Fairfax, Va., which at that time did not have a strong lacrosse tradition.

Bokker made an immediate impact, guiding the Patriots to the first winning record in school history, with an 8-7 mark. During her tenure at George Mason, Bokker's squads maintained their status as one of the nation's consistently strong programs, with six top-20 national finishes, including a final national ranking of No. 16 in 2008 when the Patriots went 12-5, setting a school record for single-season victories.

During her 11 seasons at George Mason, Bokker compiled an 86-94 record and left as the winningest coach in the program's history. At George Mason, Bokker coached nine All-Americans, two Academic All-Americans, a Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Year, two CAA Defensive Players of the Year and a CAA Rookie of the Year.

In all, Bokker coached 18 first-team all-conference players and her players totaled 48 all-conference honors.

Before her arrival at George Mason, Bokker served as the head coach at American for a season, leading the Eagles to a school-best 8-8 record, earning the 1997 CAA Coach of the Year. During her time at American, Bokker was also the assistant coach for field hockey.

The former Amy Umbach is a native of Phoenixville, Pa., where she was a three-sport high school star, in lacrosse, field hockey and swimming. She was a two-time All-CAA first-team choice at William and Mary, where she also played field hockey. She was also named a BRINE/IWLCA All-American her senior season.

She earned her master's degree from George Mason in exercise, fitness and health promotion in 2007.

Bokker is the sixth head coach in the 20-year history of varsity women's lacrosse at Stanford.

U.S. national team goalie Liz Hogan joined the Stanford women’s lacrosse staff in July, 2014.

Hogan coached at the Division I level for three seasons prior to joining the Cardinal, as an assistant coach at Virginia Tech during the 2014 season after spending the two previous years at Colgate.

Hogan’s primary responsibilities with the Hokies included goalkeeper coaching, defensive practice, game planning, video breakdown and recruiting contributions. She fulfilled these roles at Colgate as well and saw strong improvements in her goalkeepers at the national and conference level. Hogan also gained experience in coordinating an offense and making in-game decisions in 2013 in the absence of the head coach.

Hogan began coaching after an outstanding career at Syracuse where she went 52-23 as a four-year starter. She is the program's all-time leader in saves (660) and ground balls (181). Some of her honors: four-time All-Big East first-team choice, 2010 Big East Defender of the Year, first-team IWLCA All-American (2010), three-time first-team All-Northeast Region selection and three-time Big East regular season champion (2008, 2009, 2011).

As a freshman midfielder at George Mason, Gamble played under current Stanford head coach Amy Bokker and was named to the Colonial Athletic Association All-Rookie team. Gamble was named captain as a sophomore and held that post for three seasons, earning All-CAA honors along the way.

Loved camp!

I love Nike and their camps. I went to three other camps this year and Nike by far has the best coaches and staff. I always learn a lot and as an experienced player that is hard to find. Competition is great and I always come away learning something. Coach Wescott is an amazing coach and great with goalies I always learned a ton from her.

Great experience!

Nike Lacrosse Camps do a great job of bringing people from all across the United States and even the world to enjoy something they love: lacrosse. Even further, Amy and the coaching staff enhances your knowledge of lacrosse, showing and telling you things that you had not known before.

Tons of fun!

Stanford camp was tons of fun and I learned a great deal from the amazing coaches. They aren't just Stanford coaches but members of team USA and other teams. I never thought I'd play pick up with Katrina Dowd, Danielle Spencer and Lauren Schimdt until then.

I hope to go back.

It was nice being placed with my own level of skill in the morning but being able to play with better people in the evening and being able to learn from that. The small skill groups and stations kept it interesting and gave you good one on one time with the coaches. Focus is not just on dominant hand but the coaches also take time to make sure that the non dominant hand gets just as much work.

Amazing camp!

This was an amazing camp I learned a lot and made some amazing friends. The staff was great both on the field and off. And I would gladly go back another year!

Supportive learning environment.

This camp is so helpful. I gained not only skill, but also confidence and the willingness to take risks. The coaches encourage you to try something new and if it doesn't work, that's ok just try again. There was a very supportive environment in which I felt I didn't have to worry if I missed a pass or dropped the ball trying a new dodge. This camp also focused on both dominant and nondominant hands equally and by the end of camp, I could switch easily in games without being nervous.

Knowledgeable coaches.

I would recommend this camp to others due to the level of experience and knowledge of it's coaches. The balance of instruction, scrimmages and free time with a tour of the campus held the girls interest for a long day of lacrosse.
