I recommend and use Auto ISO, 1,000 sec, TV (shutter priority)centre weighted-metering, AI Servo AF and High Speed
Continuous Drive Mode. On your lens set the IS to Mode 2. This way you can pan keeping your subject in the centre of the frame and if you crop later you can move your subject off centre if this looks better. I use these settings on my 40D using ISO 800 and now my 7D with Auto ISO for BIF. When I was using the 70-200 f4 IS I got pics of BIF that were a long way off. I am surprised how much detail I achieved. After you have these settings saved to one of your C settings on your mode dial it is just a matter of selecting it on your mode dial and Practice,Practise,Practice! Also use back button focus. I also use Auto White Balance. But this may cause trouble under fluorescent lights and have to be set manually each time you shoot. Good Luck!
