Welcome to North Shore Rovers

Welcome to the North Shore Rovers! Our fall soccer program is free and open to any interested child with any type of disability, more information below.  To get started, please Create an Account with all your household information then you must sign up for the ACTIVITY (click the soccer ball).  The data provided - emergency contacts, medical information, etc. - will help us better serve you. This info will also be automatically placed into your registration forms which you will only have to update annually.

The PRIMARY member should be the parent or guardian OR the participant is over 18 (generally for volunteers).


North Shore Rovers ("Rovers") is a 100% volunteer group
of coaches and student volunteers that come out to the field every fall Sunday morning to create a really fun soccer experience for kids with intellectual and physical disabilities. The program is free and we match each player one-to-one with a student volunteer for the entire season.


The Steele Family, Jack, Gail, Jackson, Eliza & Dylan, started Rovers in 2011 recognizing a need in the area for a fun recreational soccer program for kids with disabilities.  Kris Kennedy, Steve Harris, Randy Chalifour and Bob Dziadosz have become the backbone of our coaching staff and oversee the 100+ players and 125+ student volunteers we currently have enrolled.   Jack continues to serve as head coach and Gail does the juggling behind the scenes and on the sidelines.  In addition to the lead coaches, we have an incredible group of dedicated adult volunteers who help make every facet of the program run well.  We now have players and volunteers from over 24 local communities and an endless number of success stories.  Our players and volunteers were recognized by Channel 7 as "Class Act" recipients for their combined efforts to enhance each others lives, something we are so proud of and impressed to see each week during the season.

Special thanks to the Cummings Foundation for their incredible support, the City of Salem for the use of their fields, Dick's Foundation, Salem Five Charitable Foundation, all our other community supporters. Our players couldn't rock without you!!  Go Rovers!!
