Coach Amber Noll

Assistant Head Coach

Amber was born in York, PA. She began competitively swimming at age 8 for the Rainbow Hills Swim Team in Harrisburg. After returning to the York area, she competed for the Northeastern Bobcat Swim Club until age 12. As she continued to progress in swimming, she moved to a year-round USA swim team, The York Bearcats, coached by Greg Bryant. The team eventually changed names and linked up with North Baltimore Swim Club, at Crispus Attucks location. During her first two years of high school, she swam for Northeastern Bobcats, and then changed sports to field hockey for her remaining years of high school.

Amber currently lives in York with her husband, Jason and their two children, Reese and Greysen. Amber comes from a family of competitive swimmers. Her younger brother swam for the US Naval Academy and set numerous records during his 17-year swimming career. Her daughter, Reese is a 3rd generation family swimmer. She credits her love of the sport to her Mom, who also swam competitively for 13 years and to the coach who helped shape her, Greg Bryant.
