AISN Rec Center

A very uniques aspect of The American International School of Niamey is the AISN Rec Center. The “Rec Center” is integral to the overall school operations and its finances are co-mingled. However it operates as a private club open to membership to the community at large.

In 1998, the school took over the management and operation of the former American Employees Recreation Center located on the AISN grounds. Renamed the American International School of Niamey Recreational Center, or AISNRC, the center provides sports and recreational facilities along with food and drink to its members. Facilities include a pool, tennis courts, basketball court, a grass athletic field, and a restaurant & bar. Special activities are also organized to take place on these grounds.

The AISN Recreation Center operates in support of the AISN Association and the School’s mission. The AISN Recreation Center, hereby known as the Rec Center provides educational, sports, recreational, and social facilities to the members of the AISN Association and Recreation Center members in good standing.
