Meet the YMCA Sports Team

What does it take to make the YMCA of Greater Brandywine’s Sports Leagues a success? For starters, a talented team working behind the scenes to plan and organize everything that makes our leagues the best.

Here’s a closer look at the dedicated professionals who’ll be helping your kids learn and excel in our sports programs.

Patrick Dugan, Sports Director, Jennersville YMCA

Patrick has been a mainstay at the Y for almost 20 years, first starting as a membership staff associate at the YMCA of Greater Rochester and working his way up to his current position as Senior Youth Sports and Team Director. It’s not hard to see why, either.

“I’ve always had a passion for sports, and when I had the opportunity to coach, I enjoyed it so much that I decided that it was where I wanted to be and that I wanted my career path to revolve around it,” Patrick said.

A State University of New York - Brockport alumnus, Patrick received recruiting interest out of high school for both basketball and baseball. In the summer of 2017, he left Rochester to take on a new challenge at the YMCA of Greater Brandywine, which gave him a larger role in impacting kids’ lives.

“I’ve always enjoyed working with kids,” Patrick said. “When you see a kid learn a new skill and be able to repeat it and have success with it, the looks on their faces are incredible. Having the opportunity to make a difference every day is a huge reason why I love doing what I do."

Max Randolph, Sports Coordinator, Oscar Lasko YMCA & Childcare Center

Ever since high school, sports and working for the YMCA have gone hand-in-hand with Max’s everyday schedule. Having played four sports in high school, Max seemed destined to end up working in the Sports Department. Max got his start in the YMCA having gotten his first job lifeguarding for the Tri-Valley YMCA in Fleetwood, PA, and continued working with the Y at the Oscar Lasko YMCA & Childcare Center while attending West Chester University.

Having now been at the Oscar Lasko YMCA for close to four years, Max has moved his way up from Sports Site Supervisor to Lead Sports Associate and has his eyes on advancing his career in the sports world of the YMCA. “Nothing puts a bigger smile on my face then seeing a kid coming back year-to-year, getting better, learning something new, and loving the sport they play!”
