Buenos Aires - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Tons. Soccer (obviously), swimming, horseback riding, field hockey, rugby, basketball, various other sports, dance, gymnastics, martial arts. All the schools have activities and sports. Most anything the schools don’t offer is available locally, but your kids may need to have Spanish to fully participate. If they do have some experience with the language, it’s a great way to increase their exposure and solidify their language skills and meet more friends. - Apr 2022

I believe so although our kiddo wasn't old enough to use many of them at the time. - Jul 2020

Yes. Lots. Some of the after school activities tend to adhere to old-school gender lines, however: field hockey for girls; soccer for boys. However, some of this is changing. This year, for example, there was a girls soccer after school activity offered (for the first time ever!). There is also swimming, volleyball, art classes, music, gymnastic, dance, skating. LOTS! - Jul 2019
