Introducing RSA's Juggling Club

The best part about juggling is that you can do it almost anywhere and all it takes is YOU and YOUR BALL!!

What is Juggling?
Juggling is the act of keeping the ball off the ground. For soccer players, this means using any part of your body (laces, thigh, chest and head) to maintain control of the ball in the air without using your HANDS!! If you haven't juggled before, try the following: Hold the ball out in front of yourself. Now, drop the ball onto either your laces or thigh, and knock it back into your hands. Once you get a feel for this, try to do it two or three times in a row without using your hands!

Why?
Juggling can significantly improve your game in many different ways, builds muscle memory and will keep your heart rate up. Your touch on the ball is vital to the game of soccer. If you can juggle the ball consistently, you are more likely to be consistent when receiving and distributing the ball in games. It's a great way for you to learn how the ball reacts to different touches and surfaces. Juggling can also improve your confidence on the ball - not to mention, it is fun!!!

So let the JUGGLING BEGIN!!

COVID19 Concerns & Updates

COVID19 Updates-
US Youth Soccer has set a May 1st return to play date.  This date will be re-assessed on April 15th.  

NPSL and SSUL Spring Select season has been suspended.  The remainder of the spring season will be cancelled. 

For the time being, please stay healthy and safe!

Here are some basic rules to help you and your family stay safe:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water (at least 30 seconds).
  • Avoid touching your mouth, eyes or nose with your hands.
  • Clean or disinfect all areas of your training area after every use.
  • Use alcohol-based sanitizers in addition to frequent hand-washing. Carry small bottles of alcoholic disinfectant to use when hand-washing facilities are unavailable.
  • During camps, training and tournaments, maintaining hygiene is extremely important. Clothes should be washed after workouts.
  • Support your immune system with a varied, vitamin-rich diet with sufficient vegetables and fruit to help prevent infections. Fruit containing vitamin C, such as oranges or grapefruits, are particularly important.
  • Keep hydrated and drink enough to keep mucous membranes moist.
  • If an athlete, coach or staff member has symptoms such as coughing, fever or general malaise, they should contact their physician, should NOT attend practice and should consider self-isolation until evaluated by medical personnel.
