For the jumpers who aren't sprinting or in the relays, have them focus on multi-jumps circuit and/or lower level plyos along with the maxV/accel. work…as Mike said, don't jump into higher intensity plyos w/o having built up to them already.
When are districts? If you have an athlete(s) who specialize in jumps and no other events, they will have an advantage in their training over athletes who have to train for other events (i.e. long sprints, hurdles, vault, etc.) because they can focus specifically on jumps technique. An example of the current week for one of my L/TJ specialists (on the track) is:
MaxV work (Flying 30s x 6) (Ins & Outs x 4)
T – Short approach jumps x 6-8/Landing drills off springboard
W -Accel. work (10m x 4 – 25m x 4 – 35m x 2)
R – Short approach jumps x 6-8/Landing drills off ground
F – Full approach w/checkmarks
S – compete
Can you give me a more detailed explanation of what a multi jumps circuit is?
Districts are on May 20, 22
This example week you posted above, can I try that with my jumpers starting immediately, or should I go another route?
