Gracie Barra Oceania, together with the GB schools and students in Australia, have helped develop our GB Ambassador Program to support, value and grow our GB athletes to their full potential. In 2016, we had an extremely successful year, where our GB Ambassadors managed to rank as the top athletes within Australia.
The aim of the GB Ambassador Program is to help fund our athletes to achieve their dreams at major competitions around the world. We created a system where all the GB members involved will benefit from this project. All the athletes and Professors must follow some pre-set rules to remain eligible for the ambassadorship. The selection will happen through our GB Competition Rankings for 2017 where the top gi ranked athletes will get the ambassadorship. Funding for the GB Ambassador Program will be collected through a number of different events throughout 2017. The positions available to be a GB Ambassador are:
– Adult Female – 2 positions only
– Combined Blue and Purple Belt Division
– Adult Male – 8 positions only
– Blue Belt Division – 3 positions available
– Purple Belt Division – 3 positions available
– Brown Belt Division – 2 positions available
– Kids – 3 positions only
– Minimum Grey/White Belt and 10 years old or older
The Professor, Coach or Ambassador will pick a specific BJJ subject, like closed guard for example, to work for 4 hours, on a Saturday or Sunday. The session will be split into two 2 hour blocks, with a fifteen minute break in between. The sessions will operate with ideally a group between a minimum of 10 and a maximum 16 students.
