U12 Juggling Competition
Rush Soccer U12 Juggling Challenge.
The Challenge is to find the U12 player in all of Rush Soccer that can keep the ball in the air the longest. Whether you call it "Juggling" or in some parts of the world "Keepy Uppy", this is a true test of your ball control. No bounces, no hands, just you and the ball in the air. It will take technique, endurance and maybe hardest of all concentration to prove you are the best in Rush Soccer
The challenge will provide a host of competitions with prizes for those who stand-out.
Individual B12 record
Individual G12 record
Club wide average (boys and girls)
Regional Average (based on your Regional Technical Director)
What do you have to do?
All you have to do is juggle a size 4 ball in the air without using your hands, and every time you play the ball without it touching the ground you add one to your total. It must be witnessed by an adult and then entered in the Record Chart by clicking here.
