Current Schedule

Due to concerns over Covid-19, we are releasing our program schedule each month and asking families to RSVP for each session they plan to attend.

Our September and October schedule is below.  October registration will be open from September 20-29. Athletes must register for in-person sessions; no drop-ins allowed. In addition to the regular programs noted below, we will also hold two special events in October. On October 2nd from 10am-12 noon we will host KEEN Mini Golf at Douglass 18 Mini Golf Course and on October 30th from 11:00am-12:30pm we will host HalloKEEN at UIC Outdoor Field Complex.

We aim to hold a regular schedule for our Athletes this fall, but, this is dependent on conditions of the current pandemic as well as our ability to identify suitable space. Our tentative schedule will be to meet near UIC on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays, in Rogers Park on the 1st and 3rd Sundays, and for our online program the 2nd and 4th Saturdays. We will confirm sessions and open registration each month.
 
We aim to create in-person and online space where all are welcomed, included, and accepted; where we can connect with one another and begin to process the challenges and changes related to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
