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.

Read Full Bio

Since Amy 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 20.

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).

Great experience!

Thank you so much for organizing and running a great camp last week! From the coaching staff to the accomodations to the fun activities in between, the camp was a fantastic learning experience that I would definitely return to and recommend to other players.  I feel as though my level of play has improved greatly, and I now have further insight into what the college game is all about.
