Strategies for dealing with laconic (lazy) 9/10 Year Old girls

So I've just taken on my first ever basketball coaching gig. Made it through the first training session but I'm wondering if there are any wise coaches out there who can impart some knowledge when it comes to motivating 9/10 year old girls who have attitude issues. They don't talk back but no matter how enthusastic I am she just lopes around - no energy or enthusiasm. She can play - but also needs a lot of work. If I could get her energised I think she'd be keen to learn.Any ideas?

shout at them all the time and then be nice to the good ones.

maybe having more games at the end would motivate them to play more
