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

Tons! Rugby, soccer, basketball, American football, tennis, baseball - it is all here somewhere. - Sep 12, 2017
Tons. There are any number of programs at the Zayid sports center, the Club has a lot, ACS supports all level is sporting activities. All is available for a price!!! - Jun 8, 2015
Some are listed in the free weeklies, but it would have to be seasonal and/or indoor. - May 19, 2013
Yes, through the clubs, the international schools and an extensive summer program in the parks, although most families escape the heat and go to their home countries for the summer. - Jul 20, 2012
Probably, but most will be more expensive than at home. - Aug 9, 2011
Yes, but more for boys and less for girls. Not too extensive outside of soccer / football. - Jul 17, 2011
Usually through the schools, but there isn't really much out there that I know of. Marina Mall has an ice skating rink that is very popular with kids. All malls have a kids amusement center. It is a very family friendly city. - Nov 7, 2010
The schools offer sports programs. Outside of schools, there is an equestrian club, ballet for kids, martial arts training (somewhere), and swimming lessons offered at any of the clubs. - Jan 31, 2010
