Do you have what it takes to train like a Cowboy?

JCU, in partnership with the North Queensland Cowboys, is giving high school students with a passion and desire to develop a career in sports the chance to learn from industry experts and train like a Cowboy!

What to expect?

During this full-day program, you’ll gain unique insights into a career in sport. You’ll go behind the scenes at JCU and then explore the Cowboys Community, Training and High Performance Centre in Townsville. Academics and industry experts from Physiotherapy, Biomechanics and Sports and Exercise Science will share their experience and expertise. You will then take to the field for a high performance training session, developing your skills in leadership, teamwork and perseverance.

Can I apply?

If you’re in Year 11 or 12 and based within the North Queensland region, you can apply to be a part of the Heroes in Sport program.

This year, we are also encouraging students from outside of the Townsville catchment area, whom are willing to travel to submit an application. Travel scholarships are available to successful applicants that meet criteria.
