Suggestions on improvement? I'm now trying to take my soccer pics in TV mode - shutter usually 1/1000 or 1/1200 - and using Auto ISO - although today I switched to 100 ISO and forgot to adjust it . . .

I really like #2, #3 is good action, but cropped too tight for me on both the feet and the ball. #1 is cropped a bit tight on the left, or better yet, move the camera a little to the left as there is a bit much dead space on the right.
Your DOF looks good enough, even though you are in TV.
Color etc looks good.

A few things. If you Google sports shooting, you will find a lot of great information.

Just like with concert/plays, sports is one thing that is best shot in full Manual mode, imho.

The reason for this. If you are using aperture or shutter priority. You still have inconsistency in exposure, depending on how much grass, color of shirt or sun/sky is in your image. The person may be exposed in one image, then the next, they are dark etc.But if you have light that is varying greatly from cloudy to bright, you do have to chimp off and on to check your exposure.

A good starting settings would be about F/4, iso 400-800 (overcast) with a shutter of 1/500+ as you freeze this type of action at or a little below 1/500. Lower iso if you can to control exposure.

Use continuous focus, rather than single shot.
You should set your cameras auto focus to an area, like right or left side so that it will keep continuous focus tracking in that area, but still give a better composition using rule of thirds.

I hope that i covered what you were looking for in your cc.
