GVSU Sport Leadership Program

PED 460 & 490 Locations

Here you will find information on potential internship opportunities. We also provide a list of some previous sport leadership student fieldwork and internship locations. Please understand that this list does not include every location in which GVSU students have worked nor should current students feel limited to this list. We provide the list simply to give you some ideas or help expose you to new types of organizations.


Students are encouraged to seek a location on their own prior to the start of the semester in which they are taking 460 or 490. The Sport Leadership department is not responsible for finding you a location but will always assist when a student needs help. Once students have secured a site, they should follow the process listed on the PED 460 and PED 490 sections of the Sport Leadership website.

If you have any questions about the fieldwork or internship process, contact Chelsea Brehm at brehmch@gvsu.edu.
