Programs

All of KEEN's programs are based on a single principle: pair a trained volunteer with an athlete and let them discover together how much they can do. Programs are all open and unstructured, allowing athletes facing significant challenges to have fun and be successful. KEEN programs are open to all youth ages 5-21 with physical or developmental disabilities. Certain programs are for select age groups only.

  • Absolutely Free
  • Volunteer-Run
  • Age Appropriate & Non-Competitive
  • Open, Unstructured and Flexible
  • Tailored for Each Athlete's Needs
