Graduate assistantships

Graduate assistantships are an instrumental part of the Center for Sport Leadership (CSL) experience. While not required, nearly every CSL student over the past decade has benefited from a graduate assistantship (GA). These experiences prepare students for a future in the sport industry, build their resume, and develop their network.

Students are encouraged to apply for GA positions once they have applied to the CSL for admission. Each student is limited to applying to a maximum of three (3) GA positions. Follow the instructions within each GA position description below when applying for a given position. If you have any questions about GAs within the CSL please contact Greg Greenhalgh 804-827-5148 or gpgreenhalgh@vcu.edu

    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 5 years 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 sex – 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.
