Re: a few pictures
Here are some basic outdoor sports settings for you to try. Put camera in AV (the aperture priority) setting to start with. Set your aperture value to f/4. Set ISO (if sunny) to 200 max. The camera will choose the shutter speed necessary to create a good exposure. If you can read up on exposure compensation, you may have to bump that up 1/3 to 2/3 stop depending on which way the light is coming from. This will help you get good exposure on faces.
Use the AI Servo focus mode. AI Servo is best for moving targets. Also, make sure that you use the centerpoint only focus point. If you allow the camera to choose focus points, it'll focus on something OTHER than your son, usually.
Lastly, read up on how to assign the focus duty to one of the buttons at the rear of your camera. It'll be one you can easily reach with your right thumb. Theory is to keep the button depressed while focusing on a runner and with the shutter button half depressed, you are ready to capture the peak action shots like the baton handoff you captured. Good work there!
Keep taking shots of your sons and post for help when needed.
