Virginia PROGRAMS

VIRGINIA SPORTS 

During the Sports Program, athletes and volunteers come together for one-to-one activities. They have a group warm up and then move to individual activities that are tailored solely to the needs of the athlete. They may throw a basketball or kick a soccer ball, or they may take a walk around the outdoor track. Many love to bounce on 36” balls or be pulled along the floor on a flat wheeled scooter. A group may form for Duck, Duck, Goose. The session ends with everyone coming together in a circle (although some athletes still need to run around its periphery, and that’s okay) and sharing with the group what they did that day “that made them very Proud.” They literally go out dancing: the Hokey Pokey for the younger kids and the Macarena for the teens and young adults. Athletes burn energy, meet and interact with new volunteers, see old friends, and then rejoin their parents, who have had some precious respite time.

VIRGINIA FAMILY SPORTS DAYS

In July we hold Family Sports Days at the Key Center Schooll. KEEN athletes and their families from all programs and locations are invited to attend.

This “open gym” session is an opportunity for KEEN families to bring their KEEN athletes and other kids together for an afternoon. It’s a great time to get everyone out of the house and have some fun. KEEN’s equipment will be available for use, but there will be no volunteers to work with the athletes.

This will also be a great time to meet other KEEN families, share information and generally network.

The gyms will be open for two hours. Stay for the entire time, or pop in with whatever time you have. And if you can lend a hand putting the equipment away at the end of the afternoon, it would be greatly appreciated!

Time: 11 am-1 pm 
Session dates: TBA
Location: Key Center School • 6404 Franconia Road • Springfield, VA 22150
