Our story:

Gifted Athletes Homeschool P.E. was established in 2015 to serve the homeschool community in Memphis, TN. Omar, or Coach Ru, and his wife Saleama were searching for a quality physical education program for their homeschooled children and had trouble finding a structured program with meaningful physical activity – thus – Omar and Saleama decided to establish Gifted Athletes Homeschool P.E. to meet a need within the Memphis area. Gifted (which means bestowing a “gift” to home education) began with 9 homeschool students. Gifted Athletes quickly gained popularity and to this day, Coach Ru teaches on average, 200 homeschool students on a weekly basis. Coach Ru has been teaching youth sports for over twenty years.

According to the CDC: “Children and adolescents ages 6 through 17 years should do 60 minutes (1 hour) or more of moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity each day, including daily aerobic – and activities that strengthen bones (like running or jumping) – 3 days each week, and that build muscles (like climbing or doing push-ups) – 3 days each week.” Gifted Athletes meets this need within our homeschool community.
