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

Not many. There were some dance and art classes that a few of the kids went to. - Dec 2020

Only through the international school. - Jun 2018

Only the ones provided by the school. - Feb 2016

Very few of the organized nature. The international school had sports during school hours but really nothing of note outside the school day. You can find really knowledgable individuals to serve as personal instructors and trainers. With admission to government sports facilities essentially free, you can learn a new sport on the cheap. Several folks took up horseback riding, for example. My kids, after paying an admission fee of less than 30 American cents into a new rink, learned to ice skate under the tutelage of an English speaking expert for US$10/hour. They also took personalized martial arts lessons for US$7/hour from a second degree black belt. - Jul 2014
