I'm not going to say fast focus isn't helpful for sports because it is. However, pre-focusing near the expected focus distance of the action will aid in allowing any lens grab focus quicker. This is one of the techniques used back in the manual focus days early auto focus days when focusing was really slow. Also the use of focus limiting switches are great when the lens has them.
