I wouldn't bother, the 18-55 is not long enough unless you can get close, a 200mm is the shortest that will give you a decent photo and that would be on the side lines. In the film days for the newspapers at most games under the lights we shot with an of ISO 1600 or 3200, shooting at 1/250th and f/2.8 pushing the Tri-X for all it was worth. The 18-55 at 55mm is just not fast enough to shoot night sports.
