How can I help my athlete get the most out of KEEN?
Make sure your athlete arrives on time and is wearing comfortable play clothes. Introduce yourself to his or her coaches and let them know how your athlete is feeling that day. When you pick up your athlete, thank the coaches and find out how the session went.
What should I do if my athlete will be absent?
Call our KEEN Hotline at 301/770-3200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s important for us to know if your athlete will be absent, so we can coordinate our volunteer assignments. Please call us, even if your call is at the very beginning of the session! For more information, see our Attendance Policy.
What emergency contact information do I need to provide?
It’s vital that we be able to get in touch with you or someone you trust in case of emergency. We also need information on the medication your child is currently taking. Please make sure that our Emergency Contact Form with your athlete’s information is up-to-date.
How will I know if KEEN is cancelled because of inclement weather on the day of the session?
For all KEEN programs in Maryland; Washington, DC; and Virginia, KEEN Greater DC follows the local school district's closing procedures for inclement weather and emergencies. When Montgomery, Baltimore and Fairfax County Public Schools are closed to community use due to inclement weather, KEEN’s programs are canceled. All program cancellations will be posted on the homepage at www.keengreaterdc.org under Breaking News.
