i think even with the 70 -300 you might struggle a little as you'll need to crop in quite a bit. The other alternative is to use an extender, but that will mean you need to use manual focus which in a sports environment wouldn't be ideal. The trouble is the more professional your kit looks the more liklihood of you being challenged. Could be an idea though to hire a lens for a few days. The 100 - 400L might be an option as it would give you field of view of 160 - 640mm. You don't really want to have to crop too tight in post. For that matter you could hire a 7d to go with it as that would give you a frame rate up to 8 fps which you would find very useful
