- Homeschool P.E. Classes (Ages K-12)
Our P.E. classes began in 2015 with 9 students. Pre-Covid, we were teaching 200 homeschool students a week.
Our homeschool P.E. class is a structured one-hour class taught three times a week, which consists of basic sport fundamentals such soccer, tennis, golf, lacrosse, to name a few. In addition, every class consists of agility and conditioning which helps improve balance, coordination, speed, and weight control.
- Coach Ru currently serves as a contract instructor with a local nonprofit school. He teaches foundational classes on a weekly basis to students ages 5-15. If you would like to speak with Coach Ru about coming to your school or location please use the contact page. In addition, Coach Ru teaches homeschool P.E. to a local homeschool tutorial on weekly basis.
