Mission Statement

KEEN's mission is to foster the self-esteem, confidence, skills and talents of its athletes through non-competitive activities, allowing young people facing even the most significant challenges to meet their individual goals.

Description

Program Overview At each KEEN Session, a participating athlete (participant) is paired with a coach (volunteer) for a variety of age-appropriate recreational activities. Because a volunteer's commitment to the program can be flexible and will not require attendance at each program date, the athlete/coach pairing may change each session. Our program sessions are scheduled for the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month, with some exceptions for holidays. Each activity session lasts one hour, and depending on demand for our program, we may do two activity sessions per Sunday. KEEN activities are completely free of charge for both athletes and coaches. Our sessions are open, unstructured, and flexible, so KEEN athletes can participate in a variety of non-competitive activities, including soccer, basketball, bowling, and various adaptive activities. No particular ability is necessary for our athletes. KEEN coaches can tailor the activity to the needs of the individual athlete. Athletes are encouraged to compete only with themselves, fulfilling individual goals and learning new skills in a relaxed and supportive environment. At the end of the session, it's hard to tell who has had more fun - the athletes or their coaches!
