The purpose of the study was to assess the vertical jumping abilities in young competitive swimmersand apply these findings to swim starts, especially tothe block phase of the kick start from OSB12. The sample included 9 male and 6 female young competitive swimmers whose average age was 17.4 ±1.8 years and 16.2 ±1.3years, respectively. We used the Optojump system to determine the jumping abilities of swimmers who performed 5 vertical jumping tests: SJ,CMJ, CMJa, CMJarl, and CMJall. To determine differences in the particular dryland vertical jumping tests and vertical jumping abilities, we used the Mann-Whitney U test. We found that male swimmers showed a significantly higher levels of vertical jumping abilities than their female counterparts. The highest value of vertical jump was found in the CMJa test. There were significant differences (p < .05) inthe CMJ and CMJa tests. When assessing the differences in jumping ability during right-and left-legged tests, we found that the swimmers performed better when taking off from the right leg. We found that the differences in jumping ability during right-and left-legged tests in female swimmers were statistically significant (p<.05).
