What type of camera are you using? There's quite a difference for something like this between SLR and compact.
For a compact, I'd recommend switching to a "kids and pets" or "sports" mode if you have it. That will give you a fast shutter speed (i think I'm right saying that), something that a compact only gives you limited control over, and will in some cases allow the autofocus to track the subject (I'm probably a phillistine for even suggesting it ).
For an SLR... I haven't a clue as I haven't got one yet!

If you can practice panning, which means lock on to your target through the view finder and follow it until you shoot, remember to follow through even after you have clicked otherwise you may well still get a blur. If you get this right you will get a clear shot of the target and a blur from everything else showing the target was in motion.
Hope that makes sense!

Images blurring is either the subject is faster than your shutter or camera movement (also moving faster than the shutter). To stop action you need to be at a faster shutter speed than your subject is moving. This can be done several ways each has pros and cons.
1 - Higher ISO. A higher ISO lets you expose with less light and gives you a faster shutter speed. The downside is quality loss that is visible in larger prints.
2 - Larger Aperture: F 2.0 or 2.8 will give you more light also. Downside here is price. A 300 2.8 lens will run you $4000.00 to $6000.00. A 2.0 will be double that.
3 - Shoot in brighter light. Easier said than done I know but lots of light is the key to stopping the action.
IS lenses and mono pods will help and of course learning to pan and follow the action. You can stop most "people action" at 750 sec to 1000 sec with a mono pod. I tell all my photographers to try for 1000 to be safe.
