|Next level skills in soccer. Find a wall and see if you can juggle the soccer ball against it with out letting the ball hit the ground. In soccer, master the basics and then try to challenge yourself to do more. Start with simple juggling and move on to jogging with the ball in the air and then try wall juggling.

Field size: find space near a wall
Number of players: individual training
Age range: 10-12 to start but all levels
Description: Stand a few yards away from a wall and knock the ball against it with the inside of the foot and the instep. See if you can juggle against the wall by letting the ball hit the wall and then hit it before it hits the ground or just after it bounces. Switch to the other foot after you get into a good rhythm and you’re able to hit the ball against the wall consecutively after it bounces. Try to alternate hitting the ball against the wall with the right and then left foot.
Then juggle the ball twice and hit the ball back against the wall, let it bounce, and then juggle the ball again. Slowly, work up to where you don’t let the ball bounce at all but hit the ball against the wall without letting the ball bounce. This can be hard though, so don’t get down on yourself if you can’t do it. Instead, keep juggling against the wall and letting the ball bounce once.
You mainly want to be able to hit the ball against the wall with the instep and the insides of your feet. But for fun, see if you can hit the ball with the outsides of your feet too, alternating with the right and then the left. Try to get in a rhythm.
