Here’s some videos of me juggling with balls. I use this as a warmup for hand-eye coordination when playing beach volleyball. These videos were shot at Jeanne-Mance park in Montreal.

Juggling with balls is a fascinating activity that requires skill, concentration, and practice to master. It includes manipulating multiple objects at once in a rhythmical pattern, often with the hands, feet, and even other parts of the body. The most common form of juggling is with three or more balls, but other objects such as clubs, rings, and even fire can also be used. Juggling is a great way to improve coordination and agility, as well as provide a fun recreational activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages.

The basics of juggling involve tossing and catching objects in an alternating pattern without dropping them. It can be helpful to start with one ball and practice throwing it up in the air and catching it. Once this basic skill is mastered, two balls can be added to the juggling pattern. With some practice, more balls or other objects can be added until a full routine is developed. It’s important to keep a steady rhythm while juggling so that the objects are consistently in motion.

Juggling is a great way to have fun and show off your skills. Many jugglers take part in performances, competitions, and festivals, where they can show off their techniques and compete against other jugglers. There are also many online communities dedicated to juggling, where people share tips and resources for learning how to juggle. So if you’re looking for a fun and rewarding activity, juggling is worth a try!

Whether you want to practice as a hobby or take it to the next level with competitions and performances, getting started in juggling can be an enjoyable and satisfying experience. So grab some balls (or rings, clubs, fire — whatever floats your boat!) and start practicing! You never know how far your skills can take you. Happy juggling!
