Part of the Plymouth-Canton community since 1964, the Canton Lions has provided positive, character-building recreation for hundreds of children over the years. Our focus is on having fun while learning the fundamentals of football and cheerleading. We strive to promote citizenship, sportsmanship, fellowship and physical development. Our teams work hard each year to advance to the playoffs and the Superbowl game by coming together as one; and this effort and dedication have paid off. For the past eight years, a Canton Lions Football team has competed in the Superbowl. We are very proud of our youth and this accomplishment.
