I have daughters that play. 16 and 14. When they were little they asked to start playing. They first played rec until they were old enough to play travel. I got them involved in travel because when playing rec they loved to run all over the field chasing the ball and showed an aptitude for the game. To get their skill level up, we would spend 15-20 mins three or four days a week on the driveway passing the ball back and forth and juggling the ball two or three times and then passing it on. We never talked about how to juggle or what they should do. You don't need to have any skill to start doing this (however I would recommend watching some simple juggling to make sure your form is somewhat correct, if youv'e never done it before). Even if you are a begginer you can learn with your kids, and if they enjoy it they will start doing it themselves. It worked for us.
