Juggling a soccer ball with your thighs and feet is a good way to learn how to stay in control of the ball. The benefits of juggling are that it helps your coordination and feel for the ball. Optimally, you should not monotonously juggle the ball while counting the number of strikes. Experiment with flicking the ball over your head and collecting it. Apply as many different body surfaces as possible. Your primary emphasis when juggling should be control.
