Our skilled basketball coaches stress the importance of playing smart. Beginning with endurance, skill development, teamwork, positioning, and speed training the students must learn the fundamentals before they can represent our school in competition.

Shooting Range :
Shooting as a sports activity in school not only teaches students to be focused on their goal but also help them in leading a disciplined life. Therefore, to attract more student towards shooting activities, a shooting range has been introduce in Dalhousie Hilltop School. Not only students are taught shooting but also they are being educated on the importance of safety for shooter while shooting.
Shooting as a sports activity increases student’s strength, focus, concentration, hand-eye coordination and other motor skills. DHS has introduced a shooting range to promote courage and confidence, and most importantly to increase mental discipline. Multiple problem solving activities involving logic, mathematics and creative thinking (thinking “outside the box”) are needed and employed to succeed at any level of the shooting sports. It is also very beneficial in advancing personal responsibility and in preparation for a military or police job.
Soccer / Football :
Football is a game everyone can enjoy. At Dalhousie Hilltop School we begin teaching our kids football at a very early age to assure they understand the rules, develop a sense of competition, and experience a healthy dose of physical activity. As they progress, we focus on teamwork and strategy to make sure our school has a chance to win the championship year in and year out.
