Soccer Juggling: Basic Juggling                                             Back to Soccer Juggling
Juggling is a fundamental soccer skill, that is a must in establishing good "touch" with
the soccer ball.

How to juggle

Daily juggling at home is best.  Try and do 100 touches with each body part: the right foot,
the left foot; then both feet (alternating from one foot to the other); tops of the thighs
(alternating from one thigh to the other); and finally with the head.

Benefits of Juggling:

Gain more confidence on the ball while increasing overall skill.
Soccer juggling is the best exercise to develop touch with the soccer ball.  When juggling,
learning to control the body is very important. Being able to make quick, bodily adjustments
with all muscles is developed through juggling.  Better balance will enable a soccer player
to move to the right, while maintaining balance to shoot the ball to the left, etc.  With good
juggling skills, players will make better passes, beat defenders more easily, and be able to
hold the ball against defensive pressure, because of better touch on the ball.
