Try Time

TryTime! is an educational program run in North Queensland secondary schools targeting year 8 and year 9 students.

It has a key focus on influencing this student demographic on making the right individual choices based on age-appropriate information and practical sessions.

TryTime! uses the theme “only dead fish go with the flow” as a reminder that making informed choices sometimes means going against the flow.

The program was developed by the Cowboys in direct consultation with Education Queensland and Catholic Education.


The program engages students through a series of interactive sessions covering four modules that address social issues identified as having a direct negative impact on learning and potentially long-term life outcomes.


Each TryTime! session is run by a team of trained former Cowboys and current NYC players.
