Enriching lives by providing the community with cultural, educational, and recreational opportunities.

Sports & Recreation

The Kenan Arena looks to a multi-sport programming model that focuses on getting kids (and sometimes adults) involved in all sports with a focus on fun and physical literacy development. By providing multiple sports, kids can find their favorites as they gravitate to one sport and will have had opportunities to try others. What sport are you ready to play?
