    That's a broad question and hard to answer becasue of so many variables. You might start with the "action" setting if your camera has one. You could also use shutter priority which would allow you to choose a fast shutter speed and the camera would set the aperture. You might need to boost the ISO if the light is not the best and set white balance to auto to start, or if you know the color temp of the light source set it accordingly. Hope this helps...JSD

    Av, wide open, ISO high enough to stop most action, low enough to have acceptable noise levels.

    Keep shutter speed equal or higher than focal length of lens.

    ie. if your lens is at 200mm ... keep shutter speed at 1/200s or faster.

    Adjust ISO if necessary.
