Cutters Juggling Club – New!

The Cutters Juggling Club has been established to inspire players to practice on their own, set goals, and improve their technical soccer skills.   

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 Cutters Juggling Club Levels will undoubtedly experience improved success in their soccer matches.   Have fun and good luck!

Rules:

1.  Players may only use their feet. Touches with the feet count toward the total number of juggles. The count must return to zero if the ball hits the ground. All other body parts can be used (except hands) but they do not count toward the total number of juggles. (Ex. If a player uses their thigh to keep the ball in the air it will not be counted, but the players can continue their count with the next touch with their feet. One foot, two foot, thigh, three foot would count as three.)

2.  At each level achieved, the players will earn a free Cutters practice shirt* with the juggling club level indicated on the front.   The player also has their choice of being recognized for their achievement on the Juggle Club webpage!  *Players that can already juggle well will receive a shirt for the highest level achieved to begin their participation in the juggle club.

3.  A Cutters Staff Coach or someone assigned by the coach must count and verify the total.   The best time for the coaches to observe is before or after practice, or at Street Soccer.   The coach is only obligated to give each player three attempts per day.
Hints
-Try to hit the center of the ball on your shoe laces so that you don’t have too much spin on the ball.  Ball back-spin means you’re striking the ball too much on your toes.

-Practice both feet.  You’re going to need your weaker foot to advance through the levels.  Try alternating right foot, left foot, right foot, left foot, almost as if you’re walking.

-Avoid hitting the ball too high (above head height).  The higher the ball goes in the air, the harder it is to control the next juggling touch.
Goal Setting:
Set up goals. The goals can be weekly, monthly and yearly. Try to achieve a certain number of juggles by each period of time. The goals become your target. Start slow and with a reasonable goal and your results will start to improve.
