CANTON AREA FLAG RUGBY TEAMS
Canton Area Flag Rugby was established in 2014 with the Little Pups flag rugby team. The program expanded to include Perry in 2021 and Jackson & North Canton in 2023. Our flag rugby league is open to kids from Stark County, as well as adjacent counties/schools who have no rugby team established. Our Flag Rugby league participates in conjunction with RugbyOhio and USA Rugby and/or the local Parks and Recreation Department. We are seeking to increase the number of flag teams in the Stark/Tusc area, and will assist any area school in establishing a program by providing coaching, resources, and other needs which may arise. Our goal is to have at least three (3) additional teams in the Stark/Tusc area by 2025.
Flag Rugby is a spring sport that runs April-May. Reach out to the main contacts below for registration and age information. The programs generally include kids in grades K-5, however, some teams are reducing that span due to limited coaching staff. If you are interested in coaching, please let us know. All coaches must go through a background check process before they are able to participate.
