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

Yes, but expensive. Great programs at the Canadian school with Dragon Fire, but lots of other choices too. - May 2020


The schools have about any sport you can imagine and if the school doesn't have it you can find it somewhere here. - Oct 2017


Yes, and some int'l schools have indoor facilities. If yours doesn't, your kid is going to be ingesting the output of every factory for 200 miles while they breathe the air in, though. - Dec 2015


Yes. Through Sports Beijing, independant organizations, and some of teh international schools offer various activities. - Apr 2015


I heard there is a baseball program. - Aug 2014


My kids aren't sporty, but between the school's offerings and Sports Beijing, I think kids can play every sport imaginable. - Jul 2014


Yes, good soccer program run by Brits. Lots of opportunity for Kung Fu. I've heard of kids taking ballet. - Jun 2013


Schools offer them - Apr 2011


There are soccer moms in Beijing just like anywhere in the US. - Jan 2011


Tons, with a wide range of cost. Sports Beijing offers everything, but we can't afford any of it. Club Football runs a fantastic and affordable soccer program at many of the international schools. Terrific British coaches. I know ISB offers lots of afterschool programs, like wushu, swimming, juggling and jump-roping for younger kids -- and team sports for older kids. The PE program at ISB is amazing: track and field meets in the ES, swim classes during school, juggling and circus routines, and even a "secret-agent program" that the least athletic kid will love, love, love. - Apr 2010


Sports Beijing runs a comprehensive programme of sports for kids. - Jan 2010
