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

ACS Calvert offers soccer, dance, music, etc....after school. There are other options around town, including at the country clubs (German Club, Tennis Club, Golf Club). My kids take golf lessons at the 'highest golf course in the world.' Also, believe it or not, the embassy has a fast pitch softball league, and there is a burgeoning little league that sometimes competes locally throughout Bolivia. It's pretty rough, but the sport does exist here. - Sep 2, 2016
Yes. Soccer is big here. - Jun 9, 2015
Probably through the schools. - Jan 1, 2014
ACS has a sports program for Secondary and an after-school program for Elementary, but they are not up to American standards and competition lacks. - Jul 22, 2013
Not many. The schools have some, but they are not competitive. As kids get older, this can be an issue -- as they seem to grow much more when in competitive sports. Even most local sports teams do not compete against each other. - Jun 22, 2013
At the ACS school. - Jul 20, 2012
Not sure. - Feb 9, 2012
Plenty! - May 27, 2011
In the school, yes. - May 26, 2011
I believe so, but am not sure. My children are involved in sports at their school, ACS. - Mar 14, 2011
I believe so - Jan 7, 2010
Lots of sports programs through the school. Also private clubs including golf and tennis. - Aug 21, 2009
