Transitional In-Person Programs 

While social distancing and masking continue to be necessary, KEEN is providing small, instructor-led, in-person programs to KEEN Athletes. At each session, our instructors lead 40 minutes of exercise activity and then we do group wrap up activities and Prouds. Volunteer coaches encourage athletes to follow the instructor and provide praise and friendship. Parents can help their own children as needed. KEEN programs are open to all young people, ages 5-25, with physical or developmental disabilities. To enroll your child in KEEN, please complete our new athlete enrollment form.

All in-person and online programs remain free of charge.


Pre-Covid Program Format is Suspended Until Further Notice.

All of KEEN's programs are based on a single principle: pair a trained volunteer with a young person with disabilities and let them discover together what they can accomplish together. Programs are all open and unstructured, allowing young people with disabilities to have fun and be successful. KEEN programs are open to all young people, ages 5-25, with physical or developmental disabilities. Certain programs are for select age groups only.  KEEN programs are:

  • Free of Charge
  • Volunteer-Run
  • Age Appropriate & Non-Competitive
  • Open, Unstructured and Flexible
  • Tailored for Each Participants's Needs
  • Inclusive, Regardless of the Severity of Disabilities
