    Does anyone have any tips to help me increase my jump height for the academy?

    No. I struggled with it too, but was able to meet the standard. I was older (44), and it seemed like the 22 year old basketball players were the ones that did great at it.

    The vertical leap didn't seem like it was as much of a focus for our instructors, it was just one more thing to get through.

    But they absolutely HAMMERED us on the runs, pushups, pullups, and situps. Numerous classmates of mine collapsed on the training runs (as much as 10 miles a day, in hilly terrain, in the mid-day sun) and were transported by ambulance to the ER for IV fluids...

    Practice, practice, practice.

    Or just willy-nilly it.

    But seriously, there are lots of You Tube videos on technique. That's where I'd start. Good luck.

    I finally started the Detention Academy here in Idaho, passed the PRT, thankfully. Learning so much already and getting to know everyone from different parts of the state is awesome.

      Congratulations.

      Remember, the goal is to graduate.

      ...all the little awards for PT, academics, whatever are great but striving for that and missing sleep, or injuring yourself, is counter productive.

      Pull your weight, put in the work to do well, but don’t waste time and energy trying for something that isn’t in easy reach. Once you graduate nobody is going to care who had the high PT score or high academic average in your class.

        2 weeks left of the Detention Academy, I've enjoyed the opportunity, but at the same time I'm ready to get back to work.
