If a student is involved in a competitive game siguation and always has difficulty participating – pull the student aside and give a structured choice (do you want to be the catcher, runner, score keeper, chaser?).  This can prevent behavior issues and increase participation, which should be the goal.  Competitive situations can be difficult for many students, especially before the age of 8.  Always emphasize that the goal is participation, fun and fitness.
