LIST (League of Independent School Teams) is a consortium of private and charter school teams that organize a series of co-ed seasons, including soccer, basketball and volleyball specifically for Middle Schools in the Twin Cities.  The philosophy of LIST is to introduce students to these sports, so they are intentionally co-ed and cross grade-level.  Participation and sportsmanship is encouraged over competition. LIST also encourages teams to only practice once or twice a week, with games every Friday.  Students are exposed to the experience without it becoming overwhelming or all-encompassing.  Great River School partners with Twin Cities German Immersion School to form LIST League teams.

To be eligible for LIST Athletics:

  1. Have a current physical on file (expires every 3 years)
  2. Pay appropriate registration fees at the beginning of each sport season.  Please make checks out to Great River School.
  3. Sign the Liability Medical Release 2015 form
  4. Read the Code of Conduct 2015 form.
