Here's 3 jumping exercises we use as part of our overall plyometric routime at the beginning of the season to help improve jump reaches:
30-meter one-leg hops. Start at end line, then using left leg only, hop to center line. Then sprint back to end line. Repeat, this time hopping only on right leg.
30-meter bounds. This time, bound first off left foot, then right, alternately, to center line, then sprint back. (5 reps.)
30-meter approach jumps. Make two-step approaches, including big leap, full armswing as if spiking. Go to center line, sprint back. (5 reps.)
