lens for figure skating, soccer, baseball for d70?

I am researching a lens for my D70s. Need for:

figure skating indoor rink of my daughter
outdoor sports such as soccer; baseball of son and daughter
occasional use for freelance design work (mostly PR for schools)

I have the kit lens but I need zoom.

I've been researching the forums and got some good info, but I am still not sure what to do.

I want a lens that does not have to hunt too much for autofocus, is easy to use and ends up with subject in sharp focus while background is not. If possible I would prefer the lens not be outrageously heavy. I am not used to changing lens or using a tripod, but I could learn if necessary. The lens has to work with a D70s.

I would prefer not to spend a fortune if I do not have to. At the same time, I would rather invest in something good that I will keep for a while than get something I am dissatisfied with.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks
