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

Very few organized classes. Snorkeling, paddle-boarding, and kayaking are fun activities that are easy to find, though. - Sep 26, 2017
This is the tough part. There aren't many organized sporting opportunities but the school does its best. You can find someone to teach swimming though. For the older kids they can also get dive certified. - May 30, 2017
Some are on offer, within the schools themselves, sometimes organized in the expat community. Dili Sport Benfica has some sports camps for kids at certain times of year. - Sep 30, 2016
Ad hoc when parents coach them. - Nov 21, 2013
No organized team sports, however lessons for all kinds of activities are offered, such as ballet, scuba, karate, swimming, piano, yoga, theater, etc. - Apr 25, 2013
The sports programs depend entirely on who is at post with you. Sometimes there are swim teachers, music teachers etc. but it is always changing. - Mar 12, 2010
No sports programs for kids. We do have a swimming teacher in town for now but you never know when people will transfer out. - Feb 23, 2010
