No, we have only met this one player (twice - same behavior and result) who uses that specific tactics to enhance his chances..
And tactics it is - I overheard his coach asking him why he does it, and the kid said "because it drives them crazy".
He is actually a very good 11 yo player, and obviously very clever as I do not think that his antics are against the rules..
