Our team covers middle school and high school students (grades 7 through 12) from Robbinsdale Armstrong High School, Robbinsdale Cooper High School, Hopkins High School, Mound Westonka High School and St. Louis Park High School.
The Robins program is run by Robbinsdale District #281 Area Schools. The adapted athletics teams are administered by the high school activities departments.

Benefits of the Team
Adapted athletics are a great opportunity for students with disabilities to be on a competitive sports team and earn their varsity letter from their high school for competing in all three sports in one year. This program allows students to learn and play team sports and compete against other teams from around the state. The social opportunities of being on a team are tremendous and students really succeed in this program.
Our Team History
The Robins adapted team was started in 1983 as the Robbinsdale Robins and represented the Robbinsdale District #281 Area Schools. In recent years our program has partnered with nearby school districts to allow more students the opportunity to play adapted sports and generate the interest to possibly generate new teams. Hopkins, Wayzata, Mound-Westonka and St. Louis Park area schools have been a part of our program in recent years. The team name the Robins comes from the old Robbinsdale Senior High School Robins.
