Why Juggle?

A player’s touch and feel for the ball is vital in soccer and juggling is one of the best exercises to learn how the ball reacts to different parts of the foot and body.  Juggling also helps to develop body control, core strength, and balance while providing a good work out.  All that’s required is a ball, a small space, and some determination.  Players that progress through the NWC Juggling Club Levels will undoubtedly experience improved success in their soccer matches.  Juggling is a very important part of any player's developmentWhile it is rare to take consecutive touches in the air during a game, the following are some of the many developmental benefits of juggling: 

Balance, Eye/Foot Coordination, Core Strength 

Touch and Ball Familiarity: Each touch helps the player learn the response of the ball. 

Confidence and Style: Once the ball responds the way they want, they will add difficulty to the touches, increase their confidence, and add style to their game. 

The Love of Spending Time With the Ball: As confidence and ability builds, players will look forward to spending time with the ball to try to break their juggle record and develop tricks through their personal creativity. Have fun and good luck!

Rules:

-Players U10 and Younger: May start the ball with their hands, but first touch must be with the foot.. Players must return to zero once the ball hits the ground. Once they pass Level 2 players must only count touches with the feet from the ground.

Players U11 and Older May only start the ball from the ground with their feet, and can only count touches with the feet. All other body parts (besides hands and arms) can be used to keep the ball off the ground, but only touches with the feet can count towards the overall juggling score. Players must return to zero once the ball hits the ground.

HONOR SYSTEM: Players do not need an adult to count or be present after they reach level 1 (U9/U10) or Level 3 (U11/U12).  Each player is responsible for accurately counting his or her number of touches on the ball.  To get initial entry into the juggling club they need to be able to video themselves or show a coach.

- Reporting: Once reaching a level of achievement, simply send an email including the players name, age, club team, and overall score to [email protected]

- Score Posting: Once the score is confirmed, the player and their score will be posted at www.nwclliance.org at the level they have achieved. Age group and overall leaders will also be identified. At the end of each season the club leader will be identified with their picture and juggling score!

- Bag Tags and Prizes:  In addition to being identified on the NWC website, each Juggling Club member will receive an NWC Juggling Club Bag Tag.  These tags will reflect the most recent club level reached so that players can display their achievement with pride!
