History and Mission

Founded in 2005, Sportable is a 501 C3 non-profit organization focused on providing sports and recreation opportunities for individuals with physical disabilities in the greater Richmond area. Our mission is to create opportunities and transform lives through sport.  Sportable offers year round opportunities for active participation at both the recreational and competitive levels, a previously unmet need in our community.  Sportable was awarded Silver Level honors in 2017 for Paralympic Excellence by the U.S. Olympic Committee. 

 Providing access to information and opportunities for appropriate health care and wellness promotion, Sportable’s athletic programs have resounding effects on all aspects of an individual’s life, optimizing their full potential. Sportable evolved out of one bedrock principle: good physical health is necessary for persons with physical disabilities to develop the freedom to work, learn and live fully. Founded by Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialists, Sportable is managed by professionals skilled in adapting and modifying sports to create a safe and accessible recreational environment. Through activities that promote health and well-being, Sportable’s staff and volunteer leaders empower individuals with the keys to understanding how to enhance, preserve, and improve their health in the same ways as everyone else.

Our athletes range in age from 3 years old through adult and include individuals with a variety of physical impairments, such as spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, amputees, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, etc. As physical disabilities can affect anyone – regardless of race, religion, age or gender – Sportable is proud to serve a broad spectrum of individuals. We also can boast a strong relationship and referral system with the leading Polytrauma and Spinal Cord Injury Centers in the Richmond Veterans Administration System, allowing us to serve our nation’s heroes.

Our wheelchair basketball program will be the primary focus of the graduate assistant’s tenure with us, due to the amount of practices and tournaments that take place over the course of the season.  The Graduate Assistant will be a key person in the planning of our big tournament that we will once again host in October, with at least 16 teams traveling into Richmond to compete.  Our two wheelchair basketball teams are nationally ranked, and we are looking to add a third in the upcoming season.  The Graduate Assistant will play a major role in helping to continue the development of our basketball program and our athletes!
