About Us
Part of the Plymouth-Canton, Michigan, community since 1964, the Canton Lions provides positive, character-building recreation for hundreds of children. Our focus is on having fun while learning the fundamentals of football and cheerleading. We strive to promote sportsmanship, fellowship and physical development. 

Our teams work hard each year to advance to the playoffs and the Super Bowl and to excel at the annual Cheer Rally by coming together as one. This effort and dedication have definitely paid off. For the past ten years, a Canton Lions football team has competed in the Super Bowl; and for the past several years, our cheerleading squads have earned Cheer Rally medals.

We are proud of our athletes and their accomplishments. Thank you to all of our families, generous sponsors and to our community for the continuous support. GO, LIONS!
