Question about Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera
For sports (or any fast moving occasion) you must be very particular about your settings. The Rebel Xsi takes great shots, but some tweaking needs to be done on your end, to make sure you don't get the "blur" and low quality that you may be experiencing.
On the settings dial, turn the mode wheel to "Tv". This is shutter priority, meaning you are controlling how fast the "shutter" closes. You need to have it set higher because you are trying to "freeze" a fast moving object.
After setting the selector to "Tv", you can change the speed by moving the "control wheel" left and right. (It's located above the ISO button, below the shutter button". If you look at your LCD screen while turning the wheel to the right (it makes a clicky sound), you will see the speed increase.
By default, it is set at 1/125th of a second. Increase it (1/200th of a second for example) and try that setting. You should freeze your target without blur.
If you are indoors and need a flash, the speed will max out at 1/200th of a second. Of course, if you need the flash, you will manually have to pop it up yourself by pressing the flash button when in "Tv" mode. It has a "lightning bolt" and is located near the "EOS" sticker on the front.
Hopefully this helps you. Let me know!

Do you have the setting on sports? If so, use a tri-pod and see if the camera continues to take bad shots.
