Jamie Swartz embarks on her fifth season at the helm of the Spartan squad looking to continue to build a strong program. The Spartans have accumulated a 42-41 record under Swartz and will look to improve upon that mark in the coming years.

During her brief tenure, Swartz has coached 15 All-Capital Athletic Conference selections, including a school-best five during the 2009 campaign.
Swartz is no stranger to York College as she was a four-year starter for the Spartan from 1995-1998. She was a fearless player that helped lead the Spartans to 48 wins in four years including a 15-4 mark during her senior year. Swartz was a four-time All-Capital Athletic Conference player while she was also a two-time NFHCA all-region selection. She was selected to play in the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Division III Senior All-Star game in 1998 while she also earned Spartan team MVP accolades that same season. Swartz was recognized as the winner of the 1998-99 Georgia Heathcote-Stallman award winner, an award recognizing the outstanding senior female athlete at York College.
Swartz also got the job done in the classroom as she was a three-time NFHCA All-American Scholar. She graduated Cum Laude with a B.S. in Recreation Administration / Special Events.
Swartz returned to her alma mater as an assistant coach under former Spartan mentor Vicki Sutton from August of 1999 through April of 2001. The Spartans went a combined 22-10 and were nationally ranked in those two seasons with Swartz on staff.
She has also served as a USA Futures Field Hockey site director, a Future Stars Camp instructor, and also as the assistant field hockey coach at the Christian School of York during the 2002 campaign.
Swartz resides in York with her husband Doug and her two young sons, Ethan and Aiden.
