Meet the New Guilderland YMCA Aquatics Director: Brian O’Connor

Brian first started with the Guilderland YMCA in 2007 as a lifeguard and swim instructor. He graduated Guilderland High School in 2010 and obtained a Bachelor’s of Science in Accounting from the State University of New York at New Paltz in 2014. Now he is beginning his career with the Capital District YMCA. He is looking forward to working with the staff and getting to know our members!

We were able to catch up with Brian and learn a few things about him! Here are five fun facts about Brian:

1.) I currently direct worship and the music ministry for a local church, Centerpointe Community Church – I enjoy playing guitar.

2.) Guilderland has always been my home.

3. ) I have a passion for the game of volleyball, both as a player and as a coach.

4. ) I am cross-dominant, I do somethings left-handed, and others right-handed.

5.)  I’ve never been skiing before! I would love to learn this winter.

Stop by the Guilderland YMCA to meet Brian and learn even more about him!
