Learning How to Juggle:
Juggling the ball is one of the best ways players can work on their ball mastery. All professional soccer players have learned to master the ball with their feet, knees, chest, shoulders and head. The following set of exercises where designed by Sean D'Arcy.
1. Hold the ball in your hands and gently drop it onto your foot. Then kick it back up and catch it with your hands.
2. Drop the ball and let it bounce once, then kick it back up into your hands.
3. Drop the ball and let it bounce once, then kick it up with your stronger foot. Let it bounce once more, then kick it with your weaker foot back up into your hands.
Once you'r confident with those exercises you're ready to move on to using your knees.
4. Hold the ball up a bit higher than before and gently drop it. Lift your knee up, let the ball bounce off your knee and catch it again in your hands.
5. Drop the ball gently and lift up your knee so the ball will bounce up off it. Then let the ball bounce once on the ground, kick it back up with your foot and catch in your hands.
6. Drop the ball gently again and let it bounce on the ground. Kick it up once with your foot, then do once more bounce off your knee into your hands.
Now that your feeling confident, this is the time to go for your personal best and set your record for how many times you can kick the ball up with only one bounce in between each kick.
