Kelly 1 Kris Kelly Dr. Marinova English 123H 20 March 2008 A Complacent County Although it has improved, the quality of the York County Parks and Recreation sports programs has yet to reach top-notch level. I have spent my entire life playing sports for such a wonderful county, so there is nothing foreign to me in terms of how things are done. Coaches meetings happen the week before the first practice, the first two games don’t count, and every player must play at least half the game.
