NRL Cowboys House students had the opportunity to impress some of North Queensland’s best basketballers as part of an exclusive JCU Townsville Fire skills and drills clinic at the Boys Campus.

JCU Fire players Stephanie Reid, Lauren Nicholson and Courtney Woods joined head coach Shannon Seebohm for the clinic which included both boys and girls, with students learning the fundamentals of dribbling, shooting, passing and defence.

They then showed off everything they learnt with a few highly competitive games, making some impressive 3-pointers along the way that was sure to catch the eye of the coach.

Left with a haul of prizes and gear, the visit left a lasting mark on students, who were back on the court less than 24 hours later putting everything they learnt into practice before school.
