Ankle weights aren't good for joints and ligaments. I have seen an exceptionally good player use a weight vest. It adds weight for resistance but the weight is better distributed on your body.

Not sure where to find it, but sports stores or online would be the best start.

ankle weights r a great idea for practicing. it will improve ur jumping ability. but i would warn you not to use them before a game. the extra weight could throw off your time when you hit, so you would have to use your first game as a warm up. instead you them during practice. run with them on and the will increase your spead or just over cone to increase your jump. if you have never used weights before don't start in the middle of your season. hope this help. good luck to you

During your extra training time (not right before a game) you can use this other alternative to ankle weights.
they came out with these new shoes that are suppose to increase your vertical 5-10 inches. They are called JUMPSOLES VERSION 4.0 and they are weighted but they attach to the bottom of your sneakers. I hear they actually work, but they are pricey. (Usually around $80 for a pair and an instuctional CD)
**I think that if you occasionally use ankle weight they can help you, but if used frequently, they can hurt your legs)
