Throughout the transition period Albania faced great challenges to create its future and such transition was very long and difficult. It was a long process of amendments including a comprehensive structural, economic, legal, cultural, and social and sports related package. The designing of reforms and institutions was oriented towards political aims and the quickest reforming occurred in less expensive areas. Such orientation resulted as well in consequences to the development of sports in Albania and female teams in particular. The poor organization of several bodies responsible for the development of sports in our country has led to serious consequences on the progress of female sports. The sports clubs in cooperation with the respective federations must draft special inspection programme to identify talents, promote sports values and cooperation with the teachers of physical education and parents so as to raise awareness and encourage as many girls as possible to become part of sports teams and above all orient them towards the proper discipline. Orientation towards the proper discipline is fundamental and it may be done only by the sports specialists who must see the physical, motor, psychic, anthropometric etc development in order to further assess the discipline to which they may be better aligned with. This is an important task to be performed quickly in order to re-establish female sports in Albania, because currently it is not representation by national teams in international events, due to the fact that girls, at an early age, prefer to be involved in ballet or dance so as to follow the traces of the good-looking ballet dancers and make reality their dream of becoming just like them.
