It depends on what event they're gonna have at the competition. If it's like one step into vertical you should train like that. If it's just standing then there's different way to train for that. Same with a full run.. depends on two feet or one foot... Need to really specify for that.

The competition is 100m, 200m, and 400m sprints. Nothing to do with vertical jump other than that vertical jump carries over to the explosiveness required for sprinting and vice versa. This was merely a thread intended to discern what a decent vertical and box jump are.

You'd get more out of just sprinting and working on your mechanics than training vertical or working on jumping explosiveness.

Here's a nice blog on jumping though

I am training plenty on spriting and mechanics and tempo and speed-endurance and all kinds of other fun stuff. That is what most of my training is devoted to. This is a purely informational thread asking the question in the title. However, every high-level sprint coach involves plyometrics and explosiveness training beyond mere acceleration and blocks work.

Thanks for the link...I'll check it out.
