Coginchaug Soccer Juggling Club

JUGGLING CLUB WORKSHEET

Not all good jugglers are good soccer players - BUT all good soccer players are good jugglers.

Juggling is the art of keeping the soccer ball in the air by bouncing it off your foot, thigh, head, chest, back and shoulder (no hands allowed). Soccer juggling will strengthen a players overall ball control and game. Juggling is a fundamental skill that is necessary in developing great "touch" with the soccer ball.

Purpose of the CSC Juggling Club is to encourage a fun way for our players to become more technical (fundamentally sound). It will also encourage them to use their soccer ball on a more consistent basis. Juggling is a very useful tool in helping players to "own" the ball.

How to Juggle: Daily juggling at home is best. Work on all surfaces of your body until you are comfortable using any body part to control the ball. Your touches will increase as you practice and have fun. You can juggle any time you want, it just takes you, a ball and a little space. Challenge yourself and keep track of your personal best.
