The U12 Juggling competition results are in, and there are some phenomenal scores. The girls led the charge with two players juggling over 4000 times, with HI, CO and WA leading the way. With both boys and girls combining for 16 players juggling over 500 times.
You can see all the results below.
A huge thanks to all those that participated and took the time to tabulate the data and send it in to Rush Soccer. The effect this national press has on your young players, will undoubtedly inspire them to bigger and better things. This is a small example of the players and the clubs that embrace the challenges in front of them and work hard to achieve the best they can.
Even a small competition such as this can demonstrate many of the Rush Core Values as a teaching point that our clubs offer for our players. The TENACITY and ENJOYMENT it takes to continue to juggle every practice to try and beat the record, the PASSION to not put the ball down for over 4000 juggles, the LEADERSHIP shown by the clubs to encouraged their players to participate, and the Clubs holding their coaches and players ACCOUNTABLE to follow through.
