Abstract: The purpose of the study was to find out the relationship of selected performance physical fitness components to the performance of jumpers. Data was collected from 50 male athletes of Junior National level representation of Andhra Pradesh state were selected for this study. The age group of the subjects were ranged from 18 years to 20 years. The selected performance physical fitness components are Locomotor Speed (50Mts Sprint), Leg Explosive Strength (Standing Broad Jump), Agility (10x4-shuttle-run), Flexibility (Bridge-up), and Orientation Coordinative ability (orientation test).Analysis was done using Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation was set at 0.05 level of significance. The findings showed that a significant relationship on long jump ability indicate that there was significant relationship was obtained between Explosive strength (0.35234), Locomotor Speed (0.24914), Agility (0.29106) with long jump ability. Whereas no significant relationship was obtained between Orientation Coordinative ability (0.12491) and Flexibility (0.91665), which shows that these components were not so important components for talented Pole vaulters. Pole vault ability indicated that there was no significant relationship was obtained between Locomotor Speed (0.21597), Explosive strength (0.2648260, Orientation coordinative ability (01334) Agility (0.14014), Flexibility (0.12) with high jump ability, which shows that these components were not so important components on which the assuagement of Pole vault depend.
