The McPherson Bullpup Speed, Power & Strength (SPS) program is open to all athletes in the McPherson School District in grades 7-12. Our SPS program goals are to improve speed, power, and strength and reduce injury risk of ALL types of athletes (see SPS training principles). HS & MS students have the opportunity to continue their training throughout the school year by enrolling in one of the SPS courses that are offered through the PE department. All training sessions will take place at McPherson High School using the weight room, wrestling room, gyms and outdoor facilities.
