Understanding typical variation of vertical jump (VJ) performance and confounding sources of its typical variability (i.e., familiarization and competitive level) is pertinent in the routine monitoring of athletes. We evaluated the presence of systematic error (learning effect) and non-uniformity of error (heteroscedasticity) across VJ performances of athletes that differ in competitive level, and quantified the reliability of VJ kinetic and kinematic variables relative to the smallest… CONTINUE READING
