We believe that Juggling is as essential a teaching subject as any other physical activity in Elementary School Physical Education.

• Success in every sport depends on good hand eye coordination •

Juggling is all about control, concentration and discipline.
You must control your throws, and control where your eyes look and where you catch the ball.
You are always Problem Solving learning to Juggle and in learning the more advanced Juggling tricks.
Students love the Juggling classes because everyone is involved, and everyone learns and progresses at their own pace.
Practice makes perfect.

Everyone is introduced to our techniques for teaching 3 Ball Juggling, and even if they do not have enough time
to learn themselves, they listen, observe and understand the focusing and concentrating steps that are needed
to learn 1 Ball, 2 Ball and then 3 Ball Juggling. Everyone can learn to Juggle with practice.
learn2Juggle breaks down Juggling to its most basic level, and everyone can become a teacher of Juggling.

When we visit schools to teach our learn2Juggle program, we observe far too many children
(even in the upper elementary grades) that are developmentally unable to throw, track and catch even one ball.

As a result many of these students dislike PE classes, shy away from competitive sport particiption, and may forever dislike sport.
Juggling is a non competitive sport that will help improve their motor coordination ability and confidence.
There is no better physical and mental activity than Juggling that will prepare students to be better athletes.

scarves

We always begin our classes teaching with one ball and then we progress to two, then three balls.
For the younger kids we also give them the opportunity to work with scarves.
Learning to follow the paths of thrown objects is essential for eye tracking in Juggling.
Scarves slow this action down. Eye tracking aids reading and writing development.

balancing

Balancing is all about focusing and concentrating on the object.
Students enjoy this activity and gain self confidence because they can learn to Balance quickly.

Our learn2Juggle program is coordinated with the PE teachers and/or Principals/VicePrincipals.
This program will teach all the PE classes (time permitting) at your school.
Our program includes teaching the Kindergarten students. Ball tossing must begin at the early ages.
Since all schools vary by size, different amounts of time will be spent at each school which does reflect upon the costs to complete each school.
Coming from Key West, we have more travel and transportation costs going up the upper and middle Keys or to different areas of Florida.

Evaluation

For most classes at each school, learn2Juggle will have Performance Evaluation Forms for administrators, teachers
and students to fill out. These evaluations will help our program understand what are our teaching strengths and weaknesses.
and help us make changes and improvements to our program.

These sheets also give feedback of our program to the Financial Sponsors.
