    Im going to suggest the 70-300. Youre not going to be able to get super close to the participants unless they are just playing out in a field and not at a facility. if its at a facility they will probably make you stay away a bit.

    Im not sure you want to get too close if its not in a facility just for safety of you and your equipment.

    If you're at a facility, you might be made to shoot frombehind netting
