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!
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!!
