About KEEN Greater DC-Baltimore (Kids Enjoy Exercise Now)

P.O. Box 341590, Bethesda, MD 20827, US

Mission Statement

KEEN's mission is to provide a range of one-to-one recreational activities for children and young adults with disabilities in a non-competitive environment which encourages the fulfillment of individual goals. KEEN seeks to develop each athlete's self-esteem and confidence, as well as recreational skills and talents, and to increase each athlete's ability to participate in a broader range of recreational activities and environments.

Description

The hallmark of KEEN programs is one-on-one attention in an environment that encourages the fulfillment of individual goals. At all KEEN activities, each child or young adult with disability -- the KEEN "athlete"-- is paired with his or her own volunteer "coach." Equipment is provided for a wide array of sports and recreational activities, including soccer, tennis, basketball, swimming, tee-ball, track and field, basic ball skills, and variety of additional activities. KEEN provides an open, unstructured environment for people with any type of disability, including those with significant needs. For some of the children and young adults who are unable to participate in other programs, KEEN may be their only recreational activity. All of KEEN's activities are provided at no cost to the children and their families.
