After School Program at Team Elite Martial Arts
Starting September 8th 2020, Team Elite Martial Arts will commence an after school program for school children from JK – Grade 8.
This program runs through out the school year with pick up options from the local schools in the Central City area of Hamilton and East and West Mountain areas.
