Power is one of the most important basic components inherent in all athletic activities. Hence, athletic coaches and physical educators are vitally interested in methods of measuring power.
The Sargent's Jump is the commonly used method of measuring this component of physical activity. Research has proven this test to be a valid measure of power, however, studies have indicated that the standing broad jump possibly is as valuable as the vertical jump for measuring power. The Sargent's Jump is more difficult to teach and learn than the standing broad Jump.
