The most important thing when it comes to designing a jump is to take into consideration the structure. Most often, a jump pit is constructed out of wood, concrete or reinforced metal. Each of these materials has its own advantages and disadvantages when it comes to use. You may need to consider whether you would prefer the pit to be entirely or partially submerged in water. Also, consider whether you would prefer to use the pit in an urban or rural environment.
The main aim of a pit is to allow people to jump high in the air and then land hard back down again. However, this can only really be determined during actual use. You will rarely get an opportunity to test your skills in the pit, but you will get a chance to observe how other members of your team perform. This will enable you to learn from their mistakes, so if you have the opportunity to watch someone else play in the long jump pit, do so.
