A good starter is the Canon T5i with the kit lens. It makes a great basic package that you can add to as you learn to use it's vast ability. Check one out.Smiley Happy

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!

T5i would be a good choice. I would strongly consider buying body-only, or at least a kit with only one lens, and spending your money on good glass.
I dont know your budget. A 70-200 f/4 is a big white lens and is very sharp and only about $725. It would be great for the waterskiing and ok for the hockey but not necessarily perfect for low lighted indoor arenas.

Canon 5d mk 4, Canon 6D, EF 70-200mm L f/2.8 IS mk2; EF 16-35 f/2.8 L mk. III; Sigma 35mm f/1.4 "Art" EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro; EF 85mm f/1.8; EF 1.4x extender mk. 3; EF 24-105 f/4 L; EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS; 3x Phottix Mitros+ speedlites
