The findings of the study indicated that the following major problems were dominant in the Lemo wored youth volleyball sport projects: less emphasis given to the value of sport in general and youth volleyball development in particular, by the general public, the investors and sport officers at all levels, absence of transparent and accountable administration, lack of cooperation among the concerned stallholders, very low popular participation, absence of permanent fund for the projects, lack of sufficient volleyball courts in the area and less emphasis given to even the existing ones, lack of trained sport professionals that could supplement the problems man power in woreda levels, less access and opportunity or available structure that could invite the private investors to attract to. As a general solution to the identified problems greater emphasis has to be given to the youth volleyball project in the area so that it could be possible to recruit adult players in the near future and this could also be a fundamental base for the sustainability of the major adult volleyball project in the Woreda.
