I have been experimenting with different settings for shooting U-12 youth soccer. I am using a D200 and 70-200 2.8VR. I prefer to freeze the action with absolutely no motion blur. I use to use shutter priority set to 1/1000 and adjust the ISO if necessary to get apertures in the 4 - 5.6 range.

I was speaking a another photographer and he prefers to shoot aperture priority set to f4. He was pretty excited that he could sometimes get shutter speeds above 1/2000.

I can freeze the action at 1/1000 so what is the advantage of shutter speeds faster than that? I would think a lower ISO would be more beneficial.
