Who is Ray Noble?


How many people can say they have been involved in one sport for fifty years? Ray Noble can!

Ray started diving at age five at Miami Hills Swim Club. With the encouragement of his parents and watching his older siblings having fun on the 1- and 3-meter springboards, it set him on a course that has lasted a lifetime.

During those early years, Ray was motivated by the praise he received when he would learn a new skill or performed well. In his competitive age group competitions, Red or White ribbons just was not good enough -- Blue was his favorite ribbon color!

As the years went by, there was always one thing that was a consistent presence -- a mentoring coach. As Ray's summer club career was coming to an end, he was asked to become the team diving coach. That experience set into motion a life-long career of helping young people achieve their goals in this great and fun sport.

In the mid 1980"s Ray began working for the Indian Hill school system and shortly thereafter he became the school's diving coach, a position that he enjoyed for the next sixteen seasons. During those sixteen seasons Ray also shared his time with the diving teams of Mariemont H.S., Mt. Notre Dame H.S., and Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy, while also working with other divers whose schools did not have diving teams or pools.

During the summer season, Ray has spent the past 17 years as the diving coach for the Anderson Hills Swim Club, and has had many divers who have won their league age group diving competitions. One of his highlights of coaching at Anderson was in the year 2000 when his team won the Greater Cincinnati Summer Club Diving Championships.

For the last seven years, Ray has been lending his talents to the DIVE Cincinnati Program, and enjoys coaching divers of all ages and ability levels from the Tri-State area. The Sport of Diving has given Ray the chance to meet some of his diving heroes of his younger days including Greg Louganis, Micki King and Dr. Sammy Lee, as well as world and Olympic medallists from around the globe.

Ray is a Life Member of USA Diving and is U.S. Diving Safety Certified. In his spare time, Ray likes to spend time with his kids Ryan and Casey and when not on a pool deck it is a good bet that you can find him with a fishing pole in his hand.
