Not all good jugglers are good soccer players BUT all good soccer players are good jugglers.
What is juggling?
Juggling is a skill that requires keeping the ball in the air for as long as possible. When juggling, a player will use their head, chest, thighs and/or feet to keep the ball in the air.
Why is juggling important?
Agility is a natural partner to balance, but it is being able to keep your balance while performing the skill in motion. Juggling can help players improve their agility especially if they work in pairs or challenge their individual skills. Juggling will help with three key things.
Receiving the ball
Comfort on the ball
How does juggling help ball control?
Juggling will improve your touch. It will help you in controlling the ball well which in turn helps a bit to improve short touch dribbling. Once your feet are accustomed to a ball it will improve control and dribbling.
