  1. What do I need to purchase for my child?

– As of now the only mandatory item you will need to purchase is cleats.

Your child will be given all other needed equipment. Canton football wears

black cleats, we have Nike uniforms but the brand and style is not

mandatory. I only ask that the cleats be black to match our black socks.


  1. Where do we practice and where are the locker rooms?

– We practice between Salem and Canton High School, on the corner of Joy

Rd and Canton Center, outside of the Canton North Building, which we

call Phase 3. Canton North(Phase 3) is the Canton High School athletic

building. Our locker room, gym, weight room, and offices are in this

building. To drop off or pick up your child, please do so in the circular drive

of the Canton North Building(Phase 3).

the summer?

should go on your family trip in the summer without fear of missing football.

Come August 10th, the season officially starts and attendance becomes required.

Always communicate with your coach if you know you will be absent for a long

period of time. Coaches understand you have days in the summer where you

have pre-scheduled events (even coaches go on vacation).
