Alright! Here I go:

1. http://community.topcoder.com/tc?module=Static&d1=tutorials&d2=alg_index
2. http://www.geometer.org/mathcircles/
3. http://www.geeksforgeeks.org/fundamentals-of-algorithms/
4. http://nptel.iitm.ac.in/video.php?subjectId=106102064



These are a few sites that should tell you about the well used algorithms. But just knowing them isn't enough. You should be well versed on how to apply! And that will only come with practice my friend.

Have a look at this link for sure: http://sportprogramming.blogspot.in/2014/07/getting-started-with-sport-of.html

Dont forget to learn from editorials in case you are unable to solve a problem from some challenge! And don't worry! Give yourself time. You will do just fine!

Happy Coding! :)

Try to solve past contest(long/short) problems, if you don't get the idea,take a look at the editorials. From these editorials you will learn a lot.
