As we approach the championships season, hundreds of instructors will be faced with the task of choosing a hotel and supervising a group of teenagers on an overnight trip. Here are some web resources for hotel safety!
These excellent articles are written by Police Detective and author Kevin Coffey. They list dozens of tips for hotel safety, including tips on ways to stay safe that may never have crossed your mind. Not only are there suggestions for choosing a safe hotel, there are many great safety tips that you can use as discussion points with your students prior to the trip such as reminding them not to prop open doors, not to say their room number out loud in the presence of strangers (or at the reservations counter) and to be aware of their surroundings when entering or exiting an elevator.
Take a look through the list and see what you can teach your students about hotel safety. Not only will it help them this time around but these are valuable lessons for a lifetime of safe travel!
