The McPherson Bullpup Speed, Power and Strength program (SPS), which has contributed greatly to the success of Bullpup athletics over the past several years, is open to all athletes in USD 418 who are in grades 7-12.

The SPS goals are to improve speed, power and strength, while reducing injury risk of all athletes.

High school students have the opportunity to continue their training throughout the school year by enrolling in one of the SPS courses that are now offered through the PE department. All training sessions will take place at MHS, using the weight room, the wrestling room, gyms and outdoor facilities.

The sessions for beginners in grades 7-9 will emphasize the flexibility, balance and coordination needed to master free weight lifting.
