Brendan Smith, Rye Y Sports Coordinator and Sports Camp Director
I'm looking forward to a great summer at the Rye Y!  I feel lucky to have a job where I can share my enthusiasm for sports with campers and counselors. The best part is watching the confidence of our campers grow as they develop their skills and teamwork. Sports can do that!
