Quick Tip: Maximize Your Time Juggling
At a soccer camp recently, a player who could juggle over 600 times took the
iSoccer Assessment. He scored a 10 on Non-Preferred Foot Juggling. His response: “I guess I’m not as good as I thought!”
1. Isolate the Feet
Often, the strong foot makes up for poor touches by the weak foot resulting in high juggling numbers. Isolate the feet, plus use other specific juggling combinations to truly sharpen skills.
2. Add Space and Time Constraints
Just like in games, external factors force players to focus on each touch. How many left foot juggles can you do in 20 seconds? 5? Try to get to 10! 30? Try to get to 35! And so on.
