If you are able to juggle three balls with two hands or trained enough of wall-floor juggling, then it is time to go a step further and try wall juggling.
How to do it?
Stand in front of a wall. We recommend that the wall is as flat as possible. Note: We refer to ball 1, ball 2 and ball 3, ball 1 is the first thrown ball, ball 2 ist the second thrown ball and ball 3 is the last thrown ball. One Ball:
Take one ball
Throw it to the wall
Repeat until you have a good feeling for the throw
Take one ball in each hand
Throw ball 1 with your stronger hand
Throw ball 2 (in your weaker hand) when ball 1 comes of the wall
Catch ball 1 with your weaker hand
Let ball 2 hit the floor and catch it with your stronger hand
Repeat vise versa
Repeat until you can do it ten times in a row on both sides.
Hold two balls in your stronger hand and one in your weaker hand
Throw the first ball (ball 1) with your stronger hand
Let it bounce of the wall and throw the second ball (ball 2) with your weaker hand
Catch ball 1 after it bounces of the wall
When ball 2 comes of the wall, throw the third ball (ball 3) of your strong hand
Catch ball 2 after it bounces of the wall with your stronger hand
Catch ball 3 after it bounces of the wall with your weaker hand
Repeat vise versa
Like in every style of juggling, the throw is the most important thing. An easy to catch throw against the wall will help you to learn this style of juggling fast. If you can already juggle three balls in the normal way, we recommend learning wall-floor juggling first, as it gives you more time and makes wall juggling easier to learn for you. To make wall juggling more difficult, we recommend using up to three diffrent types of balls which vary in size and bounce. For an example you can take a floorball, a tennis ball and a football.
You can do wall juggling as warm up before games and training or as a hand-eye drill with diffrent balls. In the beginning you will react to the balls comming of the floor, but after some time you'll catch yourself getting in a flow.
