Help... Nikon DX and lens for indoor and outdoor sports and more

I'm trying to decide on a Nikon body and lens for indoor swimming events and outdoor baseball games. I will also use it for everything else! The indoor swim venues are quite dark, so I need at least a 2.8 lens. I also will use this camera for portraits and everything else.

My current camera is the original Canon Rebel, so I'm too ready to upgrade.

I was going back and forth from FX to DX for a while. I think DX would suit me the best, but it seems that lenses are more limited.

I'd prefer just one lens for all, but understand that 2 might be best. My budget is low and I'm looking for used equipment, probably up to $700 total. If less, I wouldn't mind. Yeah, that's low, I know. I've been leaning towards a D5300. The Nikon DX's get really great reviews, so I am ready to switch from Canon... I think.

Any suggestions and advice would be very much appreciated.

Nikon D5300
