SEL70200GM and indoor sports

Just got a 70200GM and plan to shoot some indoor sports (Crossfit Open) at my gym.  Taking the pics is just a way for me to give something back to all the nice people I exercise with.

18' high ceilings, all fluorescent bulbs with a bunch missing so poor light.  Rolling garage doors with partial windows that face south. If it is warm enough, doors will be open making the lighting more challenging.  Event takes place from 4pm till 7pm

I am hoping I can get some feedback on a few of the key settings I was planning on using .. in-focus is more important then some ISO noise. The pics will end up on the gym's Flickr page and whatever social media the person in the pics chooses to post to so I doubt there will be much critical viewing .. capturing the experience is more important

  • Aperture Priority - primarily 2.8 but likely no smaller then 4
  • White Balance - Auto
  • Focus Area - Lock-on AF: Center
  • Focus Mode - Continuous AF
  • Priority Set in AF-S and AF-C - AF
  • Pre-AF - Off
  • AF/MF Button - AF On
  • AF w/ shutter - On
  • AEL w/ Shutter - On
  • Metering Mode - Multi
  • ISO Auto Min SS - 500
  • ISO - Auto

Thanks for the help
