Welcome katkoota!
D3 is an awesome camera!

For moving subjects, stay away from manual mode which in general is a GREAT mode for learning but terrible for tracking a moving subject.

Shutter priority mode is the way to go and my minimum shutter speed would be 1/250 and more likely 1/500 or 1/1000.

Hope that helps!
Marko
