Welcome to Galway Rovers FC 

First and foremost, Galway Rovers is a family club. As a staple of the Massachusetts Club Soccer world for decades, our mission is to provide a safe, inclusive, and supportive environment where children and young athletes can develop their skills, build character, and cultivate a lifelong love for soccer. We are committed to promoting teamwork, discipline, and sportsmanship while fostering individual growth and personal success. Through quality coaching, structured training programs, and competitive opportunities, we aim to empower our players to reach their full potential both on and off the field. Our club values integrity, respect, and fair play, and we strive to instill these core principles in every player, creating responsible and confident individuals who contribute positively to their communities. Together, we are dedicated to shaping not just skilled soccer players, but also well-rounded individuals who embrace the values of teamwork, perseverance, and a passion for the game.

Galway Rovers is also proud to call one of the finest training facilities on the South Shore it's home at Cohasset Sports Complex. Practices and home games are held on our top of the line full outdoor and indoor turf fields, as well as the beautiful grass Union Streets Fields in Hingham, MA. To learn more about our facilities, visit Cohasset Sports Complex.



We are extremely excited to announce that Galway Rovers FC is merging with one of the fastest growing premier clubs in the region, Intercontinental Football Academy of New England, known as IFA. 


Through this relationship we will gain a support structure that will allow our players and teams to compete at the highest levels possible. It will grant our players additional opportunities and pathways to MLS NEXT and NAL. Teaming up with IFA will also afford our staff additional coaching and administrative support to enhance player experience.


As a club, we will become IFA SOUTH SHORE. We are thankful that we will always have a nod to our strong Galway Rovers FC legacy while merging with IFA and we are fortunate to have the best case scenario moving forward. IFA and Galway philosophies are similar, making this transition very smooth. We will continue with our league, club structure, teams, management and coaching, but with advancements and improvements brought to us by IFA. IFA South Shore will retain home fields based out of Cohasset Sports Complex and Hingham Union Street fields.


What will change is the ability to play at higher levels than previously offered - larger opportunities and pathways for player advancement...and new uniforms! We are fortunate to be able to retain our mission, with the addition of the highest level of opportunities to offer our players.


This is an exciting time for current Galway players to become members of the IFA South Shore family. We look forward to a steady and rising future ahead, while always keeping player development and opportunities at the forefront.
