Taking my d7000 to the gymnasium

This Saturday I am going to take photos of a roller derby bout inside a gymnasium.

I have shot this location one time before with my d60 and a sigma 18 -200 3.5-5.6

I was really not happy with my results. I have since purchased a new d7000. Fearing that the camera alone would not be enough I have also rented a 70-200 2.8 vr II for the day.

I really enjoy shooting pictures of these derby girls and want to get the best shots for them that I can. I plan to shoot in shutter priority at an ISO of at least 800. AF-C and spot metering. I also will be using continuous high for my shutter mode.


What do you all think of this plan? Is there anything you would recommend to change? I am unsure of the type of overhead light but the walls are partially open so there is quite a bit of natural light mixed in.

There is an example of what I was getting there last time in my gallery.


Thank you in advance for your help.
