Why use "jouant" in "jouant au foot"? "Jouant" is not a regular conjunction of jouir yet is used regarding soccer.

    That would be for the verb jouer, not jouir (typo?). Do you have more context though? Or more details about what you want to know?

Jouant is the present participle of jouer (to play) so jouant au foot is "playing soccer/football"

You mention jouir (to enjoy, to have an orgasm) which would have led to the very unlikely jouissant au foot
