Chelsea Gamble

Chelsea Gamble was named the third head coach in Oregon lacrosse history on August 1, 2018, after a highly successful four-year stint as an assistant coach at Pac-12 rival Stanford.


The offensive coordinator for the Cardinal from 2015 to 2018, Gamble helped lead Stanford to a pair of conference championships, including the inaugural Pac-12 Tournament title in 2018, and three NCAA appearances. Stanford had reached the NCAA Tournament just five times prior to Gamble's arrival.


Under Gamble's guidance, the Cardinal offense led the Pac-12 in points per game (21.25), goals per game (15.15) and assists per game (6.10) in 2018, while also pacing the league in ground balls (21.55) and draw controls per game (15.00). Nationally, Stanford tied for 14th in goals per game and was 10th in scoring margin (5.75). The Cardinal also thrived academically in 2018, leading the nation with 10 student-athletes on the IWLCA academic honor roll.


The Stanford offense ranked among the top 15 in the nation in scoring every year under Gamble's direction, highlighted by a 2015 season that saw Gamble orchestrate the nation's top scoring offense (16.00 goals per game) as 11 Cardinal scored 10 or more goals. Stanford also led the nation in draw controls that year (15.28 per game) en route to a perfect 9-0 conference record, an MPSF Conference title and an NCAA Tournament appearance.


Gamble arrived at Stanford from Connecticut, where she was an assistant the previous three seasons (2012-14). The Huskies enjoyed unprecedented success during her tenure, setting consecutive school records for victories in 2012 and 2013 and advancing to the program's first NCAA Tournament in 2013.


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.


Gamble earned her bachelor's in integrative studies, with a focus on elementary education, in 2011. She went on to earn her master's from Connecticut in educational psychology, with a focus on cognition, instruction and learning technologies, in 2014.

I have used the Soccer in College site for 8 years, and it has helped me keep my personal and soccer information up to date, and has helped be track college contacts and interest. I think the site helped me prepare for college offers, and helped me determine that I wanted to play for UNC.
