My name is Jack. I am 11 years old and I love to play soccer. My favorite player is Lionel Messi. When I grow up I want to be a professional soccer player.
On April 1, 2014 (when I was still 7), I started a juggle journal to track how many juggles I could get in a row. Before I started my juggle journal my record was 203 juggles in a row. In the first three weeks I broke my record six times. I tracked my juggles daily for about four months.
I got up to 2,266 juggles in a row during the four months I tracked my juggles daily!
I try to break my current record about once every six months and have done it the last three times I tried.
My current record is 5,002!

I juggled for at least 15 minutes every day and wrote down my highest number of juggles I got in a row and added them to this site. I almost always used my feet and tried to switch between my left and right foot each time. I could juggle about 100 times in a minute.
I love to juggle a soccer ball. It helps with my touch and gives me lots of confidence playing soccer. I hope I can help other kids to start juggle journals and track their juggles too.
On April 21, 2014, I started working with Charity Ball to work towards getting new, quality soccer balls to kids in poverty-stricken communities around the world.
I raised almost $1000 in about three months.

My juggle journal even got some attention from the media.
