Max Touch (or Max Vert)

The Max Touch Vertical Leap Test is a basketball specific test that measures the overall skills of explosive leg power and coordinated jumping mechanics with the player's natural height and wingspan, all key elements in the game of basketball. This test is a variation of the standing vertical jump, though more similar to the running vertical jump with two-legged take-off or one leg take-off. This test is used in the Basketball SPARQ testing and at the NBA draft combine.vertical jump
