tips on learning 3 ball cascade I suck and can pretty much only do 2 ball shower!

Where do you live? The best option would be to find a juggling club or at least another juggler nearby. Juggling clubs are usually happy to teach beginners. Otherwise, look for YouTube tutorials, make sure you understand the pattern so you know where the balls are supposed to be after you throw them. Do exercises with 2 balls (maybe even start with one), make sure all throws (righthanded and lefthanded) have the same height and try to make them land in the right spot. Focus on the throws, if they are good, catching will be easy (well… with some practise, at least).

Without knowing how much you know it is difficult to help. Do you know what the pattern is supposed to look like? Do you know where to aim when you throw? Do you have a specific problem, like throwing the balls too far away or balls colliding with each other?

no i'm good just learning so i'm bad and I live in Canada where juggling is not really common!

I see. I realize Canada is a big country so I suppose you don't live ner any of the clubs listed here on the Edge? https://jugglingedge.com/clublistings.php?Region=ca&

Well, it's certainly possible to learn without any other jugglers around too. I learned to juggle 3 balls from a written instruction provided with a set of juggling balls, back in the days before Youtube.

A friend of mine taught me to juggle. Then I learned a bunch of tricks from a book. For me, the written breakdown is still the easiest to understand.

People will be learning to juggle in VR/AR soon. They will talk about the olden days when people had to use a flat screen video to learn to juggle.

Mostly because people aren't very common here either =P

If you're in Southern Ontario, there's a decent change there's a club nearby!

I would try to delete the 2ball shower from your mind. Instead practice the 2ball cascade. The two throws are the same, there is no horizontal throw. When you feel comfortable with 2b cascade it's time to move on to three. There are many tutorials on youtube. Jason Garfield's one is good.

The best tip I know for avoiding the 2 ball shower is to try starting from the other hand.
