Default 300D AF silly question

Ok... read the manual... did the little Canon on-line workshop... Still a little confused on AF...

I'm shooting gymnastics this weekend with my 300D for the first time, which means very dim lights and NO flash. I've got my 2.8 lens ready to go but what about AF on those quick moving little gymnists? I don't think that Sport Mode will be adequate since the iso maxs at 400. Yes, I'm willing to accept noise vs blur... so to use iso 800 or 1600 mean no sports mode. I'm thinking I should use Av mode... seem like in Av mode the 300D will detect a moving subject...

what do other people use when sports mode just doesn't cut it?

TIA,
john
