Dar Es Salaam - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Yes. - Jan 2022

IST offers sports, but they're limited. Check out the IST website for more info; soccer, basketball, volleyball, swimming, once-a-week running, they started tennis this year & also a small track program. There is a private swim club, Taliss, that kids can join after trying out; they need certain times. Taliss offers swim practice 6 days a week, 3 at Upper School, 3 at Lower School, and quarterly meets. Others have found some gymnastics, ballet, dance, etc., but you really have to search for them. There is a FB group "Expat Parents in Dar" that is a good source of info. - Jul 2015

Yes, through the school. - Mar 2014

Not sure about the lower grades. The high school has a few, but they are not well organized and mostly cater to the permanent residents. The soccer team is half a team playing on half a field. - Feb 2013
