How to Building Agility Equipment

Canadian Rabbit Hopping Club

Standard Jumps:


Directions for building this jump, by Kate:

Supplies: 2 5X7 bases, 2 stands (1X2" and the height you want), 4 3ft dowels, 4 1.5" screws (screws may need to be longer depending on how thick the bases are). You will also need 8 1/2" screws and 8 film canisters for jump cups. If you are doing a taller jump, the bases may need to be larger.

Find the centre of the base and mark where the screws go. Drill holes and screw though into the stand part.

Base and stand screwed together. It's a good idea to paint before putting the jump cups on. Use painters tape if doing more than one colour.

Painting the poles. I used another jump to hold the up while drying.

Jump cup. Measure where you want them, then drill short hole. Screw in cup. The bars for this jump are 3" apart. To make a jump cup, cut about 1/2 of the side of a film canister leaving the end intact. Drill hole in the centre for the screw.

Below, more of the same type jump, just different variations of size & color.

The Hoop Jump:

We just made a stand to hold the hoop so it stands up properly.

Solid, Low Jump:


This jump style was an experiment to see if we could find new ways to construct jumps. If you use this type, be careful, keep it short as it doesn't fall over, but will teach them to jump it since they can't push it over.
