Amsterdam - Post Report Question and Answers

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

For outdoor team sports, they're a soccer and hockey (field hockey) nation. Most sports are offered for a fee by athletic clubs, outside of school, and are coached mainly in Dutch. There are also ice hockey, ice skating, baseball, rugby and swimming options. Horseback riding lessons are relatively inexpensive. - Oct 2014

Yes, but not as many as in the U.S. For example, we couldn't find a soccer program for our preschooler (the soccer programs typically start with older ages). I did hear later there was one in Amstelveen for younger kids. - Jun 2014
