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

Friend's kids take multiple musical instrument classes, like violin, piano and guitar. There is a lot of soccer here, as well as football, that kids can join. - Aug 28, 2017
Both TAISM and ABA offer extracurricular sports for the students. - Oct 25, 2014
Yes, there are some, but not unlimited. TAISM offers learn-to-swim classes for students and school sports, an Arenal-branded Soccer Club opened, there is a Rugby club at the British Academy and there's also an ice skating rink I just became aware of. - Jun 7, 2012
Soccer, rugby, tae kwon do. TAISM also has a wide array of after school activities and a late bus to bring the kids home when they are done. - May 3, 2012
Plenty....if they like soccer, rugby, and swimming. ABA has a good programs, TAISM not so much. - Aug 25, 2011
Yes, some. - Feb 20, 2011
Yes, TAISM at least, has all sorts of sports and things for the children. - Apr 1, 2010
Schools do a great job of getting kids into after school activities. There are some local martial arts classes and beginning divers course for kids but these are expensive. - Feb 12, 2010
I believe the schools -- TAISM, ABA -- have good sports programs for the kids. - Jan 21, 2010
There is the Muscat Football League for soccer. TAISM give swim lessons on the weekends for their school kids. Also PDO (Petroleum...Oman) advertises sports activities, but we haven't participated in those. - Mar 19, 2009
