Youth Juggling Company, LLC

5905 Concord Avenue
Edina, MN 55424

Developing youth through juggling since 1994.



Director Paul Arneberg has made a career out of his life-long passions of verbal & written communication, performing arts, athletics, and good virtues—all toward developing the lives of youth. After a life-changing collegiate summer of learning to juggle while camp counseling, Paul founded JUGHEADS (JH) while managing the Wise Guys program of Edina KIDS Club. In 2005, the company (now an LLC) moved to Wooddale Church-Edina. With all-around support from Paul’s wife of 21 years, Wendy, along with coaching support from Jughead graduates, JH spans 10 grades; develops student leaders; produces an annual Juggle Jam; offers in-house high school lettering; and travels to festivals. Paul holds a U of MN degree in Speech-Communication with minors in Music and Theatre. He finds joy in his personal daily disciplines of Bible study, distance running, marriage enrichment, Words With Friends.


Coach Tom Gaasedelen was a Jughead from 2003-2013, now returning as a coach for Elite Club and a specialist for Ultimate Club. During his time as a Jughead, he performed six specialty acts in Juggle Jam, won the IJA teams bronze with Ultimate Club in 2011, and was the captain of Elite Club his senior year. Now studying graphic design at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Tom's experience in juggling has helped to inspire his love for the visual.
