Thanks Brian. Appreciate the feedback.

What I would do is I would calculate typical variation (e.g. test athlete over multiple days) and use that as gauge of the real change. As you can read from the recent interview by Rob Gathercole, height might not be so sensitive to NMF. Unfortunately, not much you can do extra with simple jump mat. Potential solution might be to use drop jump and RSI – Reactive Strength Index. This might be more sensitive, although different authors say it is not reliable. The question is how did they estimated sensitivity and reliability?
