BEHIND THE "O" IN OZONE 

Pat O'ReillyPat O'Reilly

"Mr. O"

Mr. O brings many skills and years of experience to the Ozone. His career working with youngsters started when he was 16 years old, as a camp counselor at the Hackensack, NJ YMCA. Eight years later, after progressing up to the assistant director position, he knew that this was what he was meant to do. Receiving his teaching certificate after graduating from Rutgers University, he taught high school and middle school mathematics for 3 years.

 Always missing the direct connection with the kids, Mr. O has spent years of participating in leadership roles within youth athletics in Hanover County. His Roller Hockey team has won consecutive National Championships for their age group, and he continues to help out the Richmond Royals Ice Hockey organization as an assistant coach. Prior to that, he served as a league Commissioner in the Central Virginia Youth Roller Hockey League and as a Director in Atlee Baseball/Softball Organization.

When asked why he does all this, his answer is simple. “I understand the challenges in this age group very well. They want a voice and a choice, but they need guidance as well. Nothing frustrates these kids more than when they don’t get both of these. But when they do, boy, amazing things can happen.” With the desire to work with kids and adults helping them first reach and then exceed their goals, Mr. O truly lives his passion.
