Find a flat platform that your players will easily be able to jump onto and then have a controlled landing when they jump off of it (a gymnastics vault box is ideal as the height can be adjusted for the level of your players).
Once the player is on the box, they should turn around, step off the box and then, as they hit the ground, jump as high as they can off of both feet.
Make sure the landing is controlled.
You don't want to be falling forward or leaning back after the landing.
Players will perform a 1/4 squat, from that squat they will jump as high as they can.
Once they land, they are going straight back into a 1/4 squat and another jump.
Players will jump as high as the can on 1 leg, after they land they will bend down touching the floor, with the non jumping leg being extended behind.
Once they player is in that position they will explode up and jump off that leg again.
Players will jump as high as they can off the one leg, once they land they will switch over to the other leg and again jump as high as they can.
This is the same technique as skipping except that each jump you are going as high as possible.
Players will find a straight line on the court. With 1 foot infront and the the other foot behind the line. Players will switch foot position as quick as possible and continue this for 30 seconds.
The players will jump (2 footed) as far as they can forward, left, back and right. They will continue this for 45 seconds.
Squat using proper technique, so that the knee joint is at a right angle. One the squat has been completed, the player will rotate and face the other way where they will squat again.
Players will walk 2 steps in a direction and then perform a vertical jump. When they land they will walk 2 steps in another direction and then perform a vertical jump.
