No, those zooms are better for field pictures or static interior portraits. If they're moving and it's inside the zoom will hardly suffice.

Get a very fast medium-tele prime, you will not be disappointed.

Depending on your budget it may be the 100mm f/2 or the 135mm f/2 L.

For daylight pictures the zooms will be allright but when inside you will not get 1/250s and proper AF with the zooms. Maybe with 5d mk3 or canon 7D and at iso 3200 but you don't want to get there.
