Here's my youth U14 soccer workflow.

This weekend my wife and I shot about 600 images from both a 7D (my wife's camera) and a 1D mkIIn (my camera). She uses a Canon 300 f4 IS. I use a 70-200 f2.8 v. 1.

With the 7D, she shoots JPEG. With the mkII I shoot RAW.

I do a quick sort of the keepers with Fast Picture Viewer.

Of the 600 images, I processed 57 and posted to our team's Shutterfly account.

With the 7D images, all I do is tweak for levels/brightness and do a Smart Sharpen in Photoshop. Occasionally a color tweak if a player has red looking skin.

With the RAW files I batch convert with Silkypix, then just tweak for levels/brightness.

With the 7D I crop heavily if needed. Not so much with the mkII files.

The entire processes takes about two hours.
