I'm devoting two of my nights a week to skills training and plyometrics. Thing is, I have no background in PMs and I'd like some guidance.

I have access to:
hurdles, stands (where people sit) a track, jump rope, and something that looks very similar to a balance beam.

Your help is appreciated,

here is a w/f safe site with a guide to how to do jumps:

In terms of volume. I think less is more. Most people who train plyometrics have the tendency to over do them.

Some things to remember with plyos. 10 maximal efforts are better than 30 efforts just going through the motions. Make sure to absorb the landing. Land with bent knees and hips. Limit the amount of contacts you are getting at one time. Spread them out throughout the week. Also look at any other type of explosive movements you are getting in your training(Oly lifts, burpees, sprinting) and take this into account when coming up with a number.
