From my understanding of speedlights (any of them), they all have limited range.
With a decent depth of field, you may be limited to 15-30 feet. I think bounce in any gym is just adding fill at best.

Modifiers are just going to spread the light even more, offering shorter range.

If you are getting good pics with bounce, I think you have the best answer!
Bounce is a great modifier.
