Transportation Practices in Community College Athletics
LaVetter, David; Kim, Hyun Duck
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v34 n6 p449-461 2010
Over 45,000 U.S. community college athletes were transported to events during 2005-2006. Transporting college athletes has been an overlooked risk management issue facing administrators. Team travel accidents have caused death, injury, liability claims, property loss, and grief. National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) member institutions' athletics administrators (N = 140) responded to questions related to their transportation practices, including 15-passenger van usage. This study identified transportation practices within community college athletics. Recommendations from athletics administrators and the National Transportation Safety Board are discussed to facilitate passenger safety and decrease institutional liability. (Contains 2 tables.)
