Event description


Welcome to One Ball 2020!

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 mindset in children and young adults. Created by founder and former professional soccer player Kamal Ibrahim together with leading positive psychology coach and wellbeing teacher Lela McGregor. Both, Kamal and Lela, proudly come from Port Melbourne and are passionate in building a positively thriving community and teaching kids and teens.

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 which will teach them life skills that will help then in 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 which runs over 4 school terms 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 Bit about One Ball

One Ball is a not-for-profit program founded by Kamal Ibrahim, a former young Socceroo and current NPL player. The program is generously supported by the City of Port Philip and the Port Melbourne 'Sharks' Soccer Club. Lela McGregor joined in late 2019 as the CEO to help develop the Positive Soccer Program work with Kamal with the ongoing strategic direction and success of One Ball.

What is Our Vision?

Our Vision is to provide opportunities for all young people, especially CALD (culturally and linguistically diverse) backgrounds across Melbourne to play soccer in a social setting and encourages them to:

  • be fit and active, and to enhance both their physical and mental health and wellbeing

  • develop positive cross-cultural relationships with others, and

  • feel more connected and empowered to make a positive contribution to their community.
