Can anyone help me with my indoor shots. This is with a Canon 7d w/ EF50mm f1.8 iso 3200 f1.8 1/640 CWB. It just doesn't have the clarity like others posted here.

Yeah, if I were you, I think you could benefit from grey-carding the WB. It's way yellow, obviously, and that would help to get it under control. You could also shoot RAW. As for the sharpness, I had a 7D for several months and eventually sold it for that reason. I could never get what I thought were just tack sharp photos out of it. I'm not saying it's not capable of it but I tried every piece of glass from the 300 2.8 on down and I was just never pleased. As a camera, it takes time to fine tune and maybe I just wasn't patient enough but I gave it a good 6 months.

I shoot Raw just for the ability to correct in post. Also, while the 50 1.8 seems to get sharper if you stop it down to around 2.2 to 2.5. I use a 7D and the sigma 50 in our gym with ISO 3200 F2.2 and 1/500 and get pretty decent shots. Went to my college alma mater and shot and was able to get up to 1/640 with that combo. Use Lightroom for post-processing.

Just a friendly word of caution about using strobes:

While it's great to be able to use strobes, make sure you also have a solution ready for the day when someone tells you that you can't use strobes. If you're planning on shooting at a higher level than high school or leagues, most of the time you're not allowed to strobe. Then again, most of the time the lighting is much better than a high-school gym...but sometimes worse.

Overall I'm just saying to have a backup plan if you're not allowed to use strobes, or upgrade to some fast glass to compensate for the crappy lighting and/or a better sensor'd camera.

Good advice, as a backup plan is always important. My experience has been different though- High schools have created the most fuss about strobes, the colleges don't seem to mind as much. The college gym that I shoot in most often is the worst lit of any school I've been in, elementary on up. I have never been questioned about the use of strobes, and in fact, there are usually other shooters there from papers, yearbook etc. setting them up as well. High schools have been more hit or miss- but they are the only place I've been asked to not use them.

Clearly- experiences will differ.
