Canoeing was started some 25 years ago at Hilton College and currently we have about 30 Canoeists in Summer and between 5 to 10 opting for Canoeing in Winter. We participate in an Inter-Schools League in Terms 1 and 4 which covers most of the Canoeing disciplines like Sprints, Flat Water Marathon, Slalom, Canoe Polo, Enduro and obviously River Paddling.
Our senior paddlers also compete in KZN Canoeing Union races, usually on Sundays and many paddle big races such as the Fish, Duzi, 50 Miler, Umkomazi and the Drakensberg Challenge. Boys can join our sport in January or after the Winter sport season in September. We train on Deeside dam on Tuesdays, Camps Drift on Thursdays and compete in Schools races on Saturdays and KZN Canoeing Union races on Sundays. In winter, we frequently use Midmar dam for training as well. Our top 7 paddlers compete in the weekly Duzi Dice on Thursdays at Camps Drift as well.
