You'll want an external flash for theses shots. The kit lens with external flash will do you well for these. The 430exII flash is a good choice. You'll get much better shots than you will by relying on high ISO and wide aperture lenses without flash in my experience.

Yes you need to be on the sidelines to get good sports shots. If you're going to be shooting at night, f4 won't be good enough. You'll need an f2.8 lens AND a camera capable of ISO 3200-6400 ISO.

quoting this for emphasis.

the 50d will work well for you, keep in mind you would not need the IS on the sports lens.
