POSITIVE SOCCER PROGRAM

Our innovative Positive Soccer Program for boys and girls (5-17 years of age) is designed and developed to support and inspire a healthy body and positive mind-set in children and young adults. This program is based on wellbeing science and is aimed to help children and young adults build their soccer skills whilst building a positive mindset that will teach them life skills to help them in their personal and school lives.

This soccer-based program entails exercises, games and infuses wellbeing activities designed to improve the participants’ fitness and skills, build a positive mindset, develop their confidence and self-efficacy, create meaningful relationships and foster their sense of belonging in the community.

 

The program has been carefully designed to ensure every session is building on your child’s skills and wellbeing. Research shows that it’s vital for children to be active every day not just for their physical health, but for their mental and emotional wellbeing, too. Research from the US suggests that executive function and brain health, both essential for academic performance, are enhanced by physical activity and aerobic fitness.

A HOLISTIC APPROACH

Moving forward, we will be introducing an online survey where young people can complete questions and be given information on their character strengths. Participants can reflect on their strengths with their coaches, and many choose to share the results with other important people in their life.

More About Wellbeing

Contemporary thinking and evidence from positive psychology are central to the One Ball program. Our program is age-appropriate, and we have used the best evidence to guide the development of several resources that help us in our work.

Our younger participants (aged five to nine) have benefited from many positive affirmations from their peers and coaches. Where possible, we engage friends, family members and carers in these activities. At the end of each practice, participants reflect on the strengths they demonstrated. Activities like this encourage children to consider their strengths and understand their capabilities on and off the pitch.

Our older participants (aged ten to seventeen) take a closer look at their character strengths using a tailor-made set of character strength cards. Evidence suggests that a strong focus on character strengths can improve your relationships, enhance health and overall wellbeing and help to buffer against or manage and overcome problems.
