LOCKPORT – The Kenan Center continues to look towards the future with the addition of a new Sports & Recreations Manager, Lea Sobieraski. Sobieraski will oversee the Kenan Arena programming including the Kenan Soccer League.
“I plan to bring both personal and professional experience to the Kenan Center team. My time playing sports, working in college athletics, and working with kids are experiences that will help me excel in this position”, says Sobieraski.
A native to Lockport, Lea is familiar with growing up on the Kenan Center Campus. “When I think of my childhood, I think of the Kenan Center. Whether it was playing soccer with my friends, raiding the snack bar with my parent’s money, or attending the exchange circus, every experience was memorable.”
The community can expect to see new and improved recreational opportunities emerge over the next several months including Free Play for Kids on June 5 between 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. during Member Appreciation Day. This is a perfect time to come and meet Lea and learn about Summer Youth Programming opportunities.
