A force bounce or active bounce is a bounce juggling pattern where the balls are thrown down at the floor to make them bounce higher than they would if they were just dropped. Force bounce patterns are normally done with outside throws, so the balls are thrown down on the outside of the pattern and come back up through the middle, with the right-hand and left-hand throws crossing paths on the way up. The reverse of this pattern is a lift bounce.

The highest number of balls that have been qualified in a force bounce pattern is 9 (by Alan Sulc), and the highest number of balls that have been flashed in a force bounce is 12 (by Alan Sulc).
