Are local sports classes and/or activities available for kids?

The schools offer some sports - soccer, swimming, basketball, etc - and have other after school activities to join, as well. Some are free, others are at a cost. Music lessons are also offered through the ISHCMC school campuses. You can find various other lessons, such as skateboarding or tennis, on the local economy. - Sep 2021

There are many sports programs available for kids connected with the International Schools. I know there is a soccer program in D2 not affiliated with the schools that some kids go to. My daughters take dance classes. Dancenter is a very nice and well run dance studio. There are places that offer art classes as well. - Aug 2015

Through the schools. But with the demise of all playing fields at the schools, this can be a real problem. There is a soccer/football program for locals run by Arsenal - which can be really good if you have transport to get your kid there. - Nov 2009
