Juggling is always more Fun with Friends!

So why not start a Juggling Club?

 

Juggling clubs meet to practice new skills and teach beginners the basics. It was at my first high school juggling club meeting where I learned the basic three ball cascade (I kept going to meetings and got a lot better!). By encouraging others to join and learn you will soon be able to practice partner tricks like passing and take-aways. If you do start a juggling club let me know -I'd love to hear about it!

Here's what you'll need to get started:

A place and time to meet*

Juggling props to share with beginners

Learn to make your own juggling beanbags Here

Someone who can teach beginners the basic tricks

A Club President who makes arrangements for places to meet and getting the word out about meetings

A Sponsor -for school juggling clubs. Often a teacher who can loan you a room for meetings.

Once you've got a place and time to meet, you'll need to let people know about it! Get the word out to jugglers and non-jugglers alike -you never know who's going to discover a hidden talent! Consider setting up a web page telling people where and when you meet, announcements, and contact information. If you have a school club put up fliers in common places inviting people to attend. Then be sure to be at every meeting (or at least have a representative) -a juggling club isn't much fun if nobody shows up!

 

Above all, have fun and enjoy the challenge and entertainment that juggling can offer!

*Where to meet? -a class room cleared of desks or empty gym work well. Some clubs meet in churches or even parks when the weather is good. Consider the ceiling height if you have advanced jugglers as members.

When to meet? Meetings are usually once a week for 1 to 3 hours. Typically weekday evenings, saturday afternoons, or as an after school activity for students.

What to do at your meetings:

Welcome any beginners and get them started with the steps for a three ball cascade

Trade tricks with your intermediate jugglers

Practice new tricks and demonstrate your old ones

Encourage passing and other partner tricks between members

Try new props, share and borrow with others

Invent new tricks and challenge others to try them

Make new friends

It may be wise set up or post some rules in advance. For example:

No fire or knife juggling

Always ask permission before borrowing someone else's props

Juggling props are not to be used for anything besides juggling

Play nice with your fellow jugglers

Everyone must help clean up and return things to normal at the end of the meeting
