It's at the FAR LEFT CORNER of the map (kinda hard to miss) and if it still isn't there you might need to level up

Build the sports center.
Go to the sports center.
Click on it.
Then click on the SimTracker
Find your pre-teen
Tap the call button (looks like a whistle)
Tap on the block on the ballet side or karate side

Guest answered: Added 16th Nov 2012, ID #551471

So when I go to the sports place it doesn't allow me to "call" them over...any one else have this problem? I've tried to click on the sim and go to hobbies and create one and it won't let me do it that way either! Grrr! Any help?

Make sure your sim isn't doing another activity when you try to "call" them. Because if for example you're having your sim take a shower, you want be able to call them to another location.
Guest said: 27th Dec 2014 | REPORT
I feel the same way! They cannot be called over!!! They were not doing anything amd no one is in any way helpful😠😠😠😠😫😫😫😫😫

I think you might have to build the competition center first. It's gonna cost 300.000 sim loans for me, I'm on level 32 64%
Guest answered: Added 26th Dec 2012, ID #559368

You have to build the ballet building and then click on the karate items or dancing items

Toddlers can also start finger painting hobby with special fingerpainting easel availble for purchase from hobby and career store. The paintings can be hung on walls as decorations, too. It's a great hobby. New outfits are awarded when all paintings are completed.

1. Buy the Sports center (far top left)
2. Go to the sports center.
3. Call your preteen.
4. Click on the dummy on the left side to have karate as your hobby. Note #1
5. Or click the disk player on the right side to have ballet as your hobby. Note #2

Note 1: you can also do a karate chop at the far left end.

Note 2: You can do barre Streches, tap on the wooden bars.

IMPORTANT: if you have a hobby (this only works for preteens) and want to switch to the other one, you can. Say if you were a Level 4 in karate and wanted to be in ballet. You could switch to ballet then back to karate and still be where you last left off.

You don't have to build any buildings once you have a certain amount of neighbour's and you can find plenty on facebook by searching for sims players go to buy under featured or hobby and the free record player allows your teen to practice ballet and theres a punch bag for karate

The sports centre, ballet or karate. My female sim, Lisa Redman, is a black belt in karate, one of my males, George Redman, is a red belt and my other male is a beginner in ballet. They have won, over all, 12gold medals, 9bronze medals, 19silver medals and 34trophies. I am pleased with it and I hope this helped xx
I'm around when you need me!

So far the hobbies I know of are ballet, karate, and swimming. Other than that, I believe those are the only hobbies preteens can do, but I'm not sure about fishing because I haven't built the park just yet.

Go to the Community Center to do karate or ballet...the community center is located near the Fire Station.
