Kim Tae-hyun, who runs Jusarang FC, the largest soccer class in the Jamsil area of Seoul, actively volunteers for community development through SSFC (Songpa Seed FC), which goes beyond hobby classes to foster elite players.
Kim Tae-hyun, a former promising player who joined Jeonbuk Hyundai in 2009, has been running a popular soccer class with more than 900 paid members in the Jamsil area as Jusarang FC, a hobby club in Songpa, where he was born and raised.
Kim Tae-hyun, a former professional player, is focusing all his efforts on fostering youth players with advanced soccer education that he learned through prestigious schools and studying soccer in Brazil.
He founded SSFC to foster elite players based on hobbyists aged 5 to 13, and within a year of its founding, the club won the 55th National Youth Sports Competition and Dream Festival (Wangjoong Wangjeon) in 2021, quickly becoming a nationally recognized youth club. Currently, the club has opened specialized soccer centers not only in Songpa, but also in Hanam, Uijeongbu, and Busan.
Behind him is Heo Yoo-seung, who practically led SSFC from the front. Kim refers to Heo, who majored in sociology at university after playing for Bucheon FC, as a “companion” and has more strengths as a leader, taking full control of SSFC operations. 바카라사이트
Not just good grades Unlike other clubs, SSFC and Jusarang FC are committed to community service.
Together with the Songpa-gu Sports Association (Chairman Kim Won-seop), they sponsor a soccer class with dads and moms through the Sharon Zion Sharing Foundation (CEO Kim Tae-hyun), and work with about 100 families every Saturday.
In addition, the talent donation project with Songpa-gu Facility Management Corporation (Chairman Hwang Dae-sung) is also a major volunteer activity of SSFC and Jusarang FC.
Beyond this, SSFC has a business agreement with the Hanam City Out-of-School Youth Support Center to provide steady and continuous talent donation services, and there are more than 200 people who have gone through the Hanam City talent donation ‘soccer class with moms’.
CEO Kim Tae-hyun said, “It is natural to give back to society the grace we received while teaching children,” and vowed to increase volunteer activities for the community in the future.
