Muscat - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Yes and no. Most are offered through TAISM. There are competitive soccer leagues (you have to try out). We found an informal field hockey program that has been great. But sadly there are no little league or rec basketball programs. - Feb 2018

Friend's kids take multiple musical instrument classes, like violin, piano and guitar. There is a lot of soccer here, as well as football, that kids can join. - Aug 2017

Both TAISM and ABA offer extracurricular sports for the students. - Oct 2014

Yes, there are some, but not unlimited. TAISM offers learn-to-swim classes for students and school sports, an Arenal-branded Soccer Club opened, there is a Rugby club at the British Academy and there's also an ice skating rink I just became aware of. - Jun 2012

Soccer, rugby, tae kwon do. TAISM also has a wide array of after school activities and a late bus to bring the kids home when they are done. - May 2012
