Our partnership with fellow northerners, the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys, helps us to bring the club’s development program to our port communities.

Each year, hundreds of local kids and community members look forward to our two-day Bulk Port Blitzes in Sarina, Mackay, Bowen and Weipa.

As well as skills on the field, students hear first-hand from some of their sporting heroes how to make smart choices off the field. In past years, Cowboys legends such as Matthew Bowen and Brent Tate have shared their own stories of hard work and commitment as the path to success in many of life's endeavours.

The Blitzes are tailored to our different communities, but broadly feature an action-packed program run by North Queensland Bulk Ports and Cowboys players, along with development officers from the club.
