Freezing the action
One of your best allies is the coach. Many of them don't even see your strobes going off. Show them you're on their athletes' side. Don't try to get foul shot photographs, you don't want to break the athletes' concentration and spoil their free throw. You make coaches' athletes look good while providing great action pictures, pictures that can end up in local newspapers as well as various college or university publications.
