Question about Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera

This Powershot A590 camera has a Kids and Pets mode that may help. If that doesn't work, you need to set your camera to Shutter Priority (TV) mode on the dial. Then you use the arrows to increase or decrease the shutter speed setting. Depending on the sport/action, your shutter may need to be 1/400 up to 1/1000 or higher.
You may find you don't have enough light to get a fast shutter speed at the standard ISO, so you may also need to increase the ISO. Only increase it as much as needed to get your shots, and don't forget to return it to a lower ISO when you are done. You set the ISO from the Func/Set button menu.
You will have a relatively shallow area of focus (called depth of field) unless you have a LOT of light and are using a relatively slower shutter (e.g. 1/400 vs 1/1000). So be sure to keep the center of the focus on the player you are shooting.
Check your user manual for instructions on how to change to the AV mode and how to set the ISO. If you don't have your user manual, you can download it here, from Canon.
Finally, this type of camera tends to have a lot of "shutter lag" between when you press the shutter and when it takes the photo. You need to plan ahead and press the shutter in advance of the "peak action" when you want to capture the photo.
