Vertical Jump - run up and single leg take-off

This one-legged running vertical jump test is a variation of the standing vertical jump, and similar to the running two-legged take-off VJ test used for basketball. The vertical jump test with a run up and single leg take-off is used in the AFL draft, as it replicates the players running then leaping for a mark. There is also the Max Touch basketball leap test, which does not specify single or double leg takeoff and measures jump height from the ground up. These tests are best conducted using the vertec equipment or similar.vertical jump
