Similar to the Canton Men's 15s team, our Men's 7s team is always looking for new players. Any male over the age of 18 is welcome to join. Don't know the game? No problem, we'll teach you!

The majority of our roster has been comprised of Canton Men's 15s players, former Canton HS players, Collegiate athletes, and brand new athletes.
