Canton Area High School Rugby was established in 2004 as the Stark County High School Rugby team. Our high school rugby programs have expanded to include any boy or girl in Stark/Tusc County, as well as adjacent counties/schools with no rugby teams established. We participate in the Rugby Ohio league, under the organization of USA Rugby. We are currently seeking to increase the number of high school teams in the Stark/Tusc area, and will assist any area high school to establish 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 2024.

We run two separate high school seasons and a player may participate in one or both depending on their schedules. Our spring season runs roughly March - May and our fall season runs roughly September to November. 

SPRING 2024 REGISTRATION HAS OPENED. Financial assistance is available for those who qualify. The cost of registration includes USA Rugby liability insurance, shorts, socks, match jerseys and a t-shirt. The player will need to purchase football or soccer cleats and a mouth guard if they do not already have them. Please contact Jason Doyle at 330.412.2967 with any questions about High School Rugby.
