This monthly group, loosely lead by Extreme Kids & Crew’s Executive Director, is available to parents whose children are participating in KEEN NYC’s basketball program in Brooklyn. Head out for some much deserved respite time, or stick around nearby with fellow parents and chat. Discussion topics are meant to connect and support, or simply entertain. The group will decide the structure, or lack thereof. Coffee, lots of coffee, will be provided. RSVP is required for both parents and kids.

KEEN NYC Basketball is currently at capacity, please contact KEEN directly for more info. Click here to register.

Feel free to contact Caitlin if you have any questions about Coffee & Conversation.
