Juggling Competition

WHY IS JUGGLING SO IMPORTANT?

The most important foundation skill a player can develop is juggling. The ability to juggle develops a player’s confidence, first touch, and passing while under pressure. A MAJOR principle of the Poway Vaqueros Player Development Plan, juggling is a FUNdamental piece to the ball mastery equation. Players who juggle well are more adept at manipulating their first touch, controlling the ball out of the air, and handling a bad pass that comes their way. This is primarily due to the amount of time they are spending with the ball and the ability they develop to control the ball. In short, juggling builds an affinity and comfort with the ball while improving their touch, motor coordination, balance, and leg strength.
