Introduction: Jumping ability in sports requires a special type of muscular contraction is based on the exhaustion of muscular force like varied types of contraction. Strength, exhausted by the human body's part is highly mechanical in nature. So, it may be static or dynamic. It may be isotonic, isokinetic, isometric.

The coefficient correlation was used to examine the significant difference; the level of confidence was set at .05. Findings: The r -value between standing broad jump and jump and reach of Athlete boys [.91(<0.05)], and non-athlete boys [.61(<0.05]. Result: The values indicated that there was a positive relation between standing broad jump and Jump and Reach performance of athlete boys as well as Non-Athlete boys between standing broad jump and jump and reach performance.
