For our athletes

During a KEEN session each athlete is paired with a volunteer coach for individual support. This lets each one access activities to the best of his or her abilities. Each session lasts for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

If someone needs time out from the main session, we have a dedicated chill-out space for quieter creative actvities.

Pick 'n' Mix

Our main sessions are called Pick ‘n’ Mix because they give athletes a range of activities to choose from. Each session has two group activities, which athletes are encouraged to join in and mix with others. These activities could range from football, basketball and hockey to gymnastics, parachute games and other playground-type games. For athletes who find it more difficult to sustain their involvement, there are a number of stations set up with equipment to play with. This session is great for athletes new to KEEN or who are not quite able to be consistently part of a group.

Out and about

In addition to our regular sessions, we arrange special trips and outings — including ice skating, swimming, trampolining and pony riding — and we hold an annual picnic and a party.

We also run at least one residential trip every year, giving athletes the opportunity to stay away from home and take part in lots of new adventures.
