Burlington Township Soccer "Juggling Club"

WHY JUGGLE?: Juggling is the art of keeping the soccer ball from hitting the ground by bouncing it off of one's foot, knee/leg, head, chest, back or shoulders (no hands or arms as in a game). Soccer juggling will strengthen a player's overall ball control and game. 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. At first, try to do 10 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. Increase the numbers as your ability increases.

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.

CLUB RULES: As each player reaches a new level of juggling they will receive a 1" color-coded soccer ball patch (see below). Players can apply the patch to the right sleeve of their team jerseys (see example).

All juggles must be done in front of a player's Coach, not in front of parents, friends, etc.

In-House "Novice" (3 Juggles)


Red - "Beginner" (6 Juggles)


White - "Intermediate" (12 Juggles)

Juggling Club members will receive additional "Gold Star" patches for exceeding 200, 300, ... juggles.
