  1. One of the stated goals for the national county sports meet is to provide temporary opportunities for young people engaged in sporting disciplines to make a little money and continue the development of sports in Liberia. However, young people not involved in football or kickball (NOT a sport, by the way) are consistently denied the opportunity to participate. Young people in basketball, volleyball, track and field, for instance, are all discouraged, and their dreams killed. Is this trend going to continue this year?
