We're going to the Olympics! Maybe!
I agree with your analysis here. I'd also add that Sixes is a really good first version of the game for kids to learn. Rule set is mostly unified across genders. Lots of touches, and tight spaces make kids have to move the ball vs the biggest, fastest kid scoring tons of goals. Field game is still my favorite. But Sixes is perfect for kids to learn and the rest of the world to compete at the World level.
