Indoor Volleyball

My HV20 is fresh out of the box, and I'm about to start videotaping indoor volleyball for the first time! Woohoo... can't wait to get started. My aim is creating 'highlight reels' of individuals and season compilations for the team. I have a DM-50 mounted, and have the WD-H43 on the way.

Other than "keep the camera steady, stupid", does anyone have any tips? Best location/angles? Close framing versus showing more of the surrounding action? Ideal shutter speed (won't be able to go too fast indoors) Frames per second? Focusing techniques?

Thanks in advance for any help getting me jump-started.

If I were shooting sports I'd shoot 60i at either 1/60 or 1/100 shutter speed and convert that to 60p in post but that's just me. Of course if your destination is DVD I don't think there is any benefit to converting to 60p.

Shoot 1/60 or 1/20 shutter speed, 60i.

Gym lights especially are often a type that will flicker in the video if the shutter speed isn't a multiple of the electricity cycle.
