2 players, 3 futebols; or 3 players, 4 futebols. (brasilianfutebol.com)
Object – 2 players attempt to juggle 3 futebols at the same time. This may not be considered juggling in the true sense, but the idea is to keep the futebols in the air and alive. Allowing the ball to bounce is essential. The excersise turns into a mad scramble and a serious fitness drill with some serious laughs. Try to do this for 2 to 3 minutes.
Tips – Pick a target on the pitch or field to play futebols to ( X marks the spot). Allow futebols to bounce, in fact playing for the bounce is the key as it buys time allowing players to chase down stray futebol(s) and return them to the target. The target give players something to focus on as trying to pass three futebols to each other in the air is impossible. (if you can do it please send us a video!)
Players will be actively and continuously chasing down one futebol, working to control it with 1 to 2 touches and play it back to the target, then immediately look for another futebol that has been played to the target by the other player and repeat. Ideally futebols should be passed back to the target with a higher trajectory allowing futebols to bounce several times while limiting the distance that then may bounce away from the target. The gGoal is to keep the futebols moving or alive.
