Reds Heart-full Club began in the Reds home town community in 2003. Its principle
is that sport is about more than just technique and physique. It is also about
having a healthy mind, developing good communication skills with friends and teammates,
and pursuing a chosen goal. It is the whole sporting mindset. The Heart-full Club
provides opportunities for people in our community to share in that mindset and
discover the enjoyment of community-based games.
Besides its local community activities, the Heart-full club is also active internationally. The overseas involvement began in 2005, the year after the Indian Ocean tsunami, with a project to encourage children in Phuket, Thailand. It then grew sharply in 2007 in tandem with the first team's matches in the AFC Asian Champions League. Football clinics and lectures were organised in Indonesia, China and South Korea, the three countries of Reds' group. This year, grassroots international exchange visits have already taken place in the UAE in April, and in Indonesia and Malaysia in May.
Arranged for children of primary school age (6 to 12 years old), the Heart-full School organises 20 once-weekly sessions for groups of 30-40 boys and girls. The roughly six-month courses teach children football skills in an environment similar to that of a full-scale football school and foster friendships among the children as well.
The Heart-full Clinic provides Kids' Soccer and Soccer Caravan programmes, and also offers coaching support for primary school physical education lessons and junior high school club activities on request. Other activities include helping people with disabilities to enjoy sport, and friendship gatherings with veterans' and women's teams. In Kids' Soccer, club coaching staff visit nursery schools to teach children sporting motions and the fun of ball games. Soccer Caravan is a one-day coaching lesson for anyone on their own sports ground, with no restrictions by age, sex or team. Lessons are arranged on request.
Talks are presented at primary schools and public halls on the themes of how football can lay character foundations for life and foster consideration for others.
Reds also host free one-day football lessons for primary school children throughout
the year. Many children at each venue have already benefited from this Heart-full
