Physical Fitness Norms for the Standing Long Jump Test (5-18 years)

Physical Fitness Norms for the Standing Long Jump in Boys

This page provides normative reference values for the standing long jump test in children and adolescents.

The standing long jump test is widely applied to assess lower body strength in children and adolescents. This test is also part of many physical fitness tests batteries, such as the Alpha-fit, Eurofit, Asso-FTB, etc. The standing long jump is recorded to within an accuracy of 1 cm, and the distance which is measured is from the take-off line to the point where the back of the heel (nearest to the take-off line) lands on the ground. After performing the test, you need to evaluate each result in relation to the age and the gender of the child by using the tables with normative scores (percentile scores) below.
