The team participated in various fire drills as part of a team building exercise.
The Lady Eagle trained with female firefighters at Fire Station 12, off Poole Rd.
"They understand, they can relate -- dragging a hose with a group of people to the basketball court. You're only as strong as your weakest link. I think that they'll be able to see that even better," said Trisha Stafford-Odom, NCCU women's basketball head coach.
The Lady Eagles also participated in various leadership activities.
Stafford-Odom said this is the perfect time for her team to understand that what they bring to the table is valuable in any environment.
