The standing Vertical Jump reveals the development of your lower-body peak power, a true difference maker to every athlete, from high-school to professional sports. SPARQ combines body weight and Vertical Jump height to calculate Peak Power. Peak Power is the athletic attribute plugged into the SPARQ Rating. Your vertical jumping ability – in other words, your Peak Power – has a direct correlation to your ability to accelerate and burn, in practice and at game-time.
TEST PROTOCOLSStand on the mat in a jumping stance with both feet planted.
Your test administrator will use a handheld device accompanying the mat to measure your right time. This is automatically converted into your Vertical Jump results.
