Program Description

In day modern parenting, it can be challenging to manage commitments and schedules. You may be interested in having your children attend a character building activity like BJJ but navigating pickup from school and drop off at the gym can be difficult to coordinate. We created this program to help local Burnaby parents that wish to have their children attend GFTeam’s Mini Samurai and Junior Samurai programs.

We will pick up your child at school at 3pm in our pick up van, bring them to GFTeam Canada Brazilian jiu-jitsu where they will have snacks, do their homework and take Brazilian jiu-jitsu class. Parents will need to pick up their child/children by 6pm. (Waiver needs to be signed)

FAQs

Who was the GFTeam after-school program created for?

It was created for parents who work during the day and have a difficult time picking up their little ones when school is finished. It is also for those parents looking for a great alternative for regular after school care, where their children are sometimes under-stimulated, unchallenged and stationary doing screen time.

What is the age range for this program?

Our After-School Pickup program is for children ages 5 to 14 years old.

Why should I choose the GFTeam After-School program over other activities?

In our program, your child will not be wasting time on the internet, playing video games, watching TV or just unproductively hanging out. Instead, they will be learning Brazilian jiu-jitsu techniques, philosophy, and overall lifestyle.

This helps them explore and learn skills that are found to be beneficial to their lives. A sport like Brazilian Jiu-jitsu also develops their body while having a lot of FUN.

Will my child need to compete in tournaments?

No!Students will never be pressured or manipulated to compete.
However, anyone who expresses an interest in entering a competition will be encouraged to do so.
The competition provides motivation to achieve a goal; demonstrate determination, effort, and perseverance to overcome challenges; and to understand that hard work and commitment leads to a greater chance of success.
If your child feels good about competing and wants to participate, we will be more than happy to prepare and support them.

How many times a week can my child to go to the GFTeam after school program?

We offer classes from 2 to 5 days a week you can choose what works best for your family schedule.
