It strains belief that you can say the 6D is "great" for sports. Sure, it can do sports photography, but it is by no means "great" for sports. The fact that you got some good shots is more a statement of your personal skill and willingness to stick to a task than it is of the suitability of this camera for sports. And the same goes for birds-in-flight, too. Both activities can be done with the 6D but the 6D is not "great" for either type of photography.

It's important this because others may misinterpret your statements.

For sports played in bad lighting conditions, 6D will definitely produce better pictures than any crop sensor Canons. You will also need to upgrade to a 1DX to get more keepers if you're shooting with the center focus point; a 5D4 won't give you more keepers at the end of the day. Even for volleyball where it helps to move the focus point off center for some shots, you can produce pretty good results as the OP shows. For shots like a bent ball in volleyball, it's all timing and luck so even a 1DX won't do better than an original 6D.
