The age difference between a 9 yr. old and an 11 yr. old is significant. Although she may be able to compete on a physical level with an 11 yr. old, she is at a different stage of development emotionally and socially.

Let her be. She may fit in. However, I would not have a 9 yr. old compete with players two years older.

Sounds like she is quite bright. I suggest you explain that to play basketball one has to be active. For example, the ball is inanimate. It will not, therefore, come to you, when you call. You have to go get it.

The encourage her.

All the best.
