NOW RECRUTING FOR THE CANTON WOMEN'S TEAM!
The Canton Rugby Women's Team is now forming with a base of 10 players, we are looking to add about 10-12 more! As our youth programs have grown, so has the need for us to have an 18+ women's team so that our high school girls players can keep on ruckin' after graduation! We anticipate scrimmaging for Spring 2023, tournaments in the summer, and a full competitive Fall 2023 schedule.
Major League Rugby describes the sport as "a game with heart and soul that echoes the best aspects of life. A game with the communal spirit that success is not measured in wins or losses, but in the growth of the game. The game of rugby isn't for anyone - it's for EVERYONE. An experience that captivates and forms connections well beyond the final whistle".
We describe it as the only sport you'll ever play where your team and the opposing team beat each other up on the field, and then join together afterwards for the home team's after-match social to eat and drink with each other!
Home matches are played at Weis Park in Canton, OH, which is northwest of the intersection 25th St NW and Market Ave N. Unless otherwise stated, kickoffs for all Home & Away matches are at 1pm.

Canton Rugby fundraises the majority of club operational costs. However, for the club to exist, we require club member dues in addition to our fundraising efforts. Player dues go towards indoor practice space, lining outdoor fields for practices and matches, referee costs, socials for after matches, purchasing team rugby equipment, team banquets, and awards.
Women's Spring 2023 Dues: $50. Select the social dues option at checkout.
