Mumbai - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Yes, though these are just starting to come back. Most kids either participate through school, or parents pay for private lessons. I know kids take dance and martial arts. - May 2023

Most are run by the schools. There are lots of coaches available for private hire. - Feb 2023

None during Covid. - Aug 2021

The American School of Bombay offers sports and activities through its after-school activities program. Elementary School Kids will stay after for an extra hour 2 or 3 days per week to try an activity of their choosing that they’ve enrolled in for that semester. This includes everything from Coding and Mathgames to Gardening and Soccer. As kids get closer to middle school, the time extends to 90 minutes and increases in frequency. Middle school and high school have a good variety of options (although likely far less than in the US). Swimming and soccer are the most popular. - Aug 2019

ASB has many, many sports programs: swimming, track, soccer, etc. Cricket is played everywhere in the street. - Mar 2019

Too many to list... Soccer, cricket, etc. etc. etc. - Aug 2015

Definitely through the American school but otherwise I don't know. Probably, though. - Nov 2014

Not that I know of. - Feb 2014

Perhaps cricket. Green space is a scarce resource. - Aug 2013

At our school, yes, but I'm not sure about anywhere else. - May 2013

The American School has lots of extra-curricular sports, with swimming being the most popular. But due to lack of green space, you can forget competitive sports like baseball, cricket, soccer, track, etc. - Feb 2013
