Abstract: This study entitled “Determinants of vertical jump on football in Ethiopian youth sport academy" was designed to identify their vertical jump abilities. The population (N = 201, male =100 and female =101) was selected from Ethiopian Youth Sport Academy Football, whose ages ranged from 13 to 20 years. SPSS version 20.0 was employed to analyse multiple linear regressions with five predictor variables. Findings of the analysis show that sex is a strongest unique contributor and also age group has a significant effect on vertical jump. BMI ranges 19.1 to 21.72 kg/m2, percentage of body fat ranges 6.095 to 7.64 % for male & 13.08 to 14.42 % female, and the normal sum of skinfold is also in the range of enabling to improve jumping abilities.
