30 second endurance jump test


Coaches use the 30 second endurance jump test to assess lower body agility and endurance in their athletes.

What is the point?

For sports where you need a spring in your step, such as football and basketball, the ability to jump, safely and repeatedly, is essential. The 30 second endurance jump test is a quick and effective way to monitor an athlete's progress in this ability, and forms part of the SPARQ rating system for basketball and soccer.

What do you need?

  • A stopwatch
  • A 12" (30cm) Hurdle
How do you do the test?

  • Start with both feet flat on the ground, perpendicular to the hurdle
  • Jump two footed over the hurdle, then back again.
  • Continue for 30 seconds
  • Record the total number of jumps

What results you'll get :

Taking this test on a regular basis will allow you to chart the improvement in your performance, and make any changes necessary to your training program.

What is being measured again?

This is a simple and effective way to assess agility and lower body strength endurance.
