I have the gym wall as a background which is pretty cool mural and not able to set up in one particular place as basketball are done in one gym and wrestling in another. I don't have much time either for each shoot before games/matches start.

I have lighting and a reflector but - how to use those in a quick setup situation? I have a 3x6 reflector and i can use my speed light with my stand for a light source, however is there any way to use the speedlight on camera and it would help? If so what do you recommend for settings for my speedlight (I'm not too familiar with it, so I don't use it often).

Hope not to late for this, but bounce your flash off a white or light colored wall or use your reflector. Don't use your speed light on your camera for direct lighting, your photos will look much better if you bounce your flash.

OK, this is a year too late, but I must recommend

Strobist

Since the subject isn't moving, you could put the camera on a tripod, which permits a slow shutter speed, and set a custom white balance for the light.

I missed the camera settings part

Try straight on flash, see if you like it?
Or bounce off your reflector or wall,
practice around the house.

Camera Settings
F stop 5.6 or lower
Make sure flash is set to TTL
ISO start around 500 and go up or down from there
Shutter speed no less than 60 (hand held)
If flash is too bright or dark use
flash exposure compensation

Flash Settings
Set to TTL

Take a picture without the flash, get your
ambient reading and then use the flash.

Hope this helps,
Mike
