Canton Area Middle School Rugby was established in 2008 with teams from Dover and Oakwood and has since expanded to include other schools! Our middle school rugby league is open to any boy or girl in Stark County, as well as adjacent counties/schools with no rugby teams established. The Canton Area Middle School Rugby league participates in conjunction with Rugby Ohio and USA Rugby. We are seeking to increase the number of middle school 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 2024.

SPRING 2024 REGISTRATION HAS OPENED. Financial assistance is available for those who qualify. Our season runs roughly March through May.  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 don't already have them.
