Players Corner

Below are links to MASA Players performing Specific Soccer Skills. Parents, MASA recommends that you watch them first and then show the kids.  These are great skills to learn to improve skills otherwise known as touch.  

Juggling Skills
We recommend that players learn to juggle the ball as soon as possible.
1) Start with dropping the ball on a knee and then catching it.
2) dropping the ball onto foot then catching it.
3) try to get multiple knees/ kicks and catching.
4) Set personal targets

Juggling Tips:
- Try to get the ball spinning toward you from your foot.
- The ball should not hit you knee but your upper thigh.
- Your thigh needs to be parallel to the ground at the point of contact with the ball. If you leg is too high, the ball will fly over your shoulder. To low and the ball will race away.
- Ideally, the ball will not travel left or right too much but straight up and down. 
- Alternating legs as you get better increases the chances of getting higher numbers. Focus on this once the player has got above 15.
Here is a YouTube Video on Juggling

Below is a list of the current record holders for Juggling for MASA.
To get on the list, a coach must verify the juggling record or parents provide a video (must be wearing a MASA Shirt).
