good luck man! its great that your trying out... but it will be real hard to start with, and you will drop the ball loads of time, but with time and PRACTICE!
it will get alot easier
1)How many juggles i need 2 do before trying tricks
man it took me till i could do 30 perfect before i could start to try ATW,
but if it takes until 900 before the ball feels comfortable when juggling, once its 'comfortable' and 'easy' to keep control of the ball in the air then you can start trying tricks...
2)What Tricks to try first
3)How to do these tricks and possibly Video's
the first 3 tricks are great foundation tricks...
catching the ball on your foot (stalling it) try switching feet by throwing the ball (when doing a footstall with your strong foot) at your weak foot then catching the ball with your weak foot
hard to explain, but hold your foot in the same place and gently touch the ball up without moving your foot (too much), this is hard but gets easy with practice
this is a very stylish trick, first juggle the ball then with your right foot juggle the ball to your right knee, then from your right knee to your right shoulder, the from your right shoulder to your head, then your head to your left shoulder, left knee then left foot... this may sound kind of easy but trust me it will be impossible to do for a while...
best way to practice is by practice juggling with the different parts of your body seperatly (feet,knees,shoulders and head)
then once you have mastered these try
1)ATW: revolving your foot around the ball (inside or outside) try learn the motion without the ball, then concentrate on doing it from a footstall, then try it from juggling and concentrate on touching it up so you can revolve around the ball smoothly... the touch up is important
2)Crossover: from juggling jump up and swing your right (or left leg) over the top of the ball and kick it back up (to the right of your right leg) with your trailing foot, timing the jump is important
3)Neckstall: catching the ball in the dip in your neck, try throwing it up to yourself and catching it before you try it from juggling
the secret to learning all these is PRACTICE and lots of it
first perfect a few tricks and then try string them together in a planned combo:
Neckstall, a few juggles, ATW, a few juggles, Crossover, Maradona 7, Crossover, a few juggles, ATW, a few juggles, Neckstall
Footstall, a few juggles, ATW, a few juggles, Crossover, a few juggles, ATW, a few juggles, Different Trick (search the fourms for ideas), a few juggles
just get good at a Combo and mabye start to practice them to music so you can juggle to a beat, then mabye do the tricks to a beat... then record yourself freestyling with a song playing in the background and if your moves match the rythm it will look and sound sick!!!
4)How long to practice for each day
1 hour if your into learning for fun, as anhkhoashevakt said 2-3 hours if your taking it serious... you can practice all day if you want it won't leave you that tired, its about how enthusiastic you are to learn..
5) How Long it will take me to learn how to juggle each amount or learn each trick
that really depends on how long your willing to practice, it took me about 6 weeks to perfect ATW of roughly 1 hour of practice a day (i wasn't trying ATW for all of that) if you really are dedicated you could learn one of those tricks in a week or week and a half
Sputnik has a great guide in the featured articles on freestlye tricks and is very helpful
and mabye soccer4life's guide on juggling would help you:
a great idea is to use a number of different balls, so your technique gets better...
