WHAT IS FREESTYLE SOCCER:
Freestyle football, also known as freestyle soccer in North America, is the art of self-expression through creatively juggling a soccer ball using any parts of the body, excluding the elbows to the hands. It combines football tricks, dance, acrobatics and music to entertain onlookers and compete with opponents.
Football Freestyle is the art of doing tricks with a football. However if you scratch the surface you'll soon discover that it's more than just tricks. For freestylers today it's an art form, a sport and a lifestyle. It's difficult to pin point the exact moment in time where freestyle truly began. Freestylers began to realise that there were no rules and no limitations.
TYPES OF TRICKS:
Freestyle tricks are divided into five main categories:
Upperbody (head, chest and shoulders
Lowerbody or Air Moves (juggling with the legs
Sitdown (juggling while sitting)
Ground moves (grounded dribbling moves)
Blocking tricks are performed by holding the ball with various parts of the lower body. It is a style inspired by breakdancing
