The mission of this Club is to promote and encourage increased participation in sport and the improved performance by athletes in baseball and softball. The Club aims to promote equality of access to and participation in sport as well as to promote a culture of participation in sport among people, especially children and individuals of an older age. The Club strives to promote not only a culture of excellence in the sport of baseball and softball, but also the idea of the sport as a recreational activity suitable for the entire family.
The Ghajnsielem Redcoats was established as a softball club in September 2012 with the primary objective to provide opportunities for girls to play a sport. The club quickly evolved into a baseball and softball club and later into a sports club.
