Vertical Jump Measurement — using flight time

Vertical jumping ability is important for many sports, and there are a plethora of programs for training to increase your vertical jump ability. It is important to monitor the changes in your vertical jump, to see if there really are increases. The traditional method for assessing vertical jump ability is by measuring jump height using a wall or Vertec device (see description of this method). The method described below measures the jump air time using an electrical contact operated system, and from that calculates jump height. This is the preferred method when testing for the SPARQ rating system.
