For my children I try to instill the fact that they have committed to something and need to stick it through. If they don't want to play next year that is fine, but they need to finish the season.

I have had them all. Those who sit and cry, those who freak out on the field for no reason, those that are agressive and hit the opposing team when they steal the ball
With the K league, I found it very helpful to have volunteer ass't coaches. That is the kids themselves. And I start with the shy/crying kids.
So rather than just being told what to do and how to do it, they are explaining what to do and how to do it. It gives them a little more control over their situation.
So for a game similar to red rover...I have my shy child call out who should dribble the ball from one line to the next while I try to cath them.
good luck. I found the crying children harder to deal with than the agressive
