  • December - Sports Specialization

    Grant Stewart
    Single sport specialization among youth and adolescent athletes is a growing trend in the last couple of decades.  More youth athletes are quitting one or more sports to focus on one sport exclusively. Overwhelming research shows sport specialization is harmful to youth athletes.  There are many benefits for youth athletes to participate in multiple sports. Some of those include a decrease in the prevalence of injuries, exposure to different coaches and experiences, and improving the athletic talent of all sports at Mullen High School.

  • A New Kind of Classroom

    Neil H. Devlin, Mullen Sports Information Director
    The days of kids casually showing up, laying down on the bench, pushing up some reps and then telling everyone how much they lifted have long been gone.

    So are coaches loosely running today’s high-school weight rooms as well as bulk being the primary goal.

    “It’s not a 24-Hour Fitness and you can’t do whatever you want, when you want and unsupervised,” Mullen Director of Sports Medicine Joey Mahmood said.

    No, weight rooms on campuses have turned into classrooms. Teaching lifelong lessons and fitness, and becoming centers for decision-making, leadership and respect have taken precedence over getting out of the way of the football players and how much someone can squat or leg-press.

    The Importance of Year-Round Training
    There are not too many athletes, coaches or parents that would disagree that a bigger, stronger, faster, fitter athlete will usually beat an equally skilled athlete who is not as big, strong, fast or fit.  What many often fail to realize is that athletes should be peaking with their performance during the most crucial and important games and matches they play. These important games and matches usually occur during the late part of the season and during the postseason into championship play.  The ability to peak at the most important time requires athletes training year-round and being consistent in their training.

    The Mullen Sports Performance department’s philosophy is to design training with the endgame in mind.  The endgame means we design our overall program to build year after year. We design our in-season training to keep our athletes strong and healthy throughout the season to be able to perform at their best during the postseason and championship season.  Being able to do this happens especially well when athletes have a solid training base and have participated in training throughout the calendar year.
