Since you are constantly in motion, you will be required to use panning for capturing moving objects i.e. keep the camera in the same motion as the object. There’s no real shortcut to do this; your only option is to keep on practicing until you perfect it. Usually at the profile point of  the action, you will achieve the sharpest image. Remember hold the camera steady and use a swing motion to follow the action.
