Why fun is important in learning -- Part 2

In Part 2 of "Why fun is important in learning" Sean Slade says: I would not ask a 6th grader to play on a senior basketball team as they would too easily be overwhelmed by skill-level, teamwork required, and level of competition (not to mention height). I would also not ask a 6th grader to play on an early elementary team for the opposite reasons. They would not be pushing themselves, would not be challenged, and subsequently would not be having fun.
