“I’m honored to continue my work with the national team,” Bokker told GoStanford.com. “Our coaching staff had a great amount of camaraderie and energy, and we plan to continue to build on that for the 2017 World Cup in England.”

Bokker is entering her sixth season as Stanford’s head coach. In 2013, the Cardinal recorded its first NCAA tournament win. In Bokker’s first five seasons at the helm, Stanford has won the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation tournament four times.

Bokker previously served on the U.S. staff in 2010 and the Canadian national team’s staff in 2009, when the Canadians won a bronze medal.

Stanford’s season will begin in February, when Bokker’s squad will look to improve on its 14-6 record and second-round loss in the NCAA tournament.
