Need help purchasing a dslr for a beginner

Hi I am purchasing a camera for my daughter who wants to take photography classes. Since she still lives with us, I thought I would have more buying power and have her share the camera with us. She would be using it as a novice but she will delve into everything you can do with a camera. Me on the other hand, I want to use the camera for my kids sports....soccer, hockey (bad lighting).
These are the two that I am considering (based on availability at Costco):
Nikon 5100 or Pentax K30. At Costco they give you a zoom lens with the Nikon, but no extra lens with the Pentax. They are the same price. Can you tell me which camera would suit both of us.
