Welcome to Kanawha Recreation Association!

The deadline for paying dues on time has passed.  If you forgot to pay your dues, you may still pay, but please do so ASAP.  Also, you will now need to add the $50.00 late fee.  Please download the Dues Statement and follow the directions on it for submitting your payment.  We need all members to pay by the end of March so that we can get started on the 2018 directory.  If you have decided not to renew your membership, please notify us by contacting the bookkeeper (info@krarva.org) before March 31.

Memberships are available for 2018.   You can download the application from the Membership page.


If your email has changed recently, please contact Martha Hodges to update it.  Emails will be coming more and more frequently as we get closer to Memorial Day.

If you did not pick up your 2017 directory, please stop by on weekdays between 10:AM and 2:PM, or on Saturdays, and you can pick up one.

There is basic information for the swim team on this web site, but there is more detailed information on www.kraswimteam.com.  There is also information about swim lessons on that sight.  Also, you will need to register for swim team on www.kraswimteam.com.  Dive team registration is on the Dive Team page on this web site.  Swim team information for 2018 will be updated over the winter on the swim team web site.

If you are using the internet at Kanawha, please use the Kanawha-Guest network.  The password is the same one we have used for years.

You will be receiving emails from KRA more frequently.   Please make sure your email inbox is set to receive messages from KRA News.  The subject line will always read Posts from KRA NEWS.  If these messages are not appearing in your inbox, please check your Spam or Junk folders.  If you are still not receiving them, please make sure you have registered to receive the emails or contact Martha Hodges.  

We are a neighborhood recreation facility located in Western Henrico County, Virginia.  Kanawha is an association of 550 member families with 4 swimming pools, 9 hard surface tennis courts, 2 backboard courts, a playground, a field, and a picnic pavilion.  We have competitive swim and dive teams for children in the summer and competitive tennis teams for all ages throughout the year.  Swimming lessons are offered in the summer, and tennis lessons are offered from March through November.  On this site you should find information about our many activities, membership opportunities, and employment opportunities.  If you have more questions, please contact us.

Information about special events will be coming out frequently.  Please check the website often.  Also, if you receive at email from KRA News, and the subject line reads "Posts from KRA NEWS - Kanawha Recreation Association for (that day's date)" that is an email that you subscribed for, and we are using those to sent out important information.  Unfortunately, we cannot change how the subject lines reads, so please know that a Post from KRA NEWS is important.  Also, please remember that anyone under the age of 14 must have a parent or adult (age 18 or older) at the pool with them after 5:PM on weekdays.

Help KRA be BEE-Free

Please remember to pick up all spills, especially of sweetened drinks, candy, ice cream, sweets. The sugar attracts yellow jackets who promptly return to their hive to announce their find. They dance out a road map for their hive-mates (we’re not making this up), and before you know it, KRA is swarming with bees. You can help by picking up after yourselves.
