Are you interested in becoming a rodeo athlete? Don’t know where to start? Sign up for a Jr. Rodeo Camp.
Our mission is to provide a fun, positive and educational rodeo experience. Camp curriculum includes an introduction to rodeo events with an emphasis on safety, fundamentals, chute procedures, livestock safety, overview of riding equipment, injury prevention and management, fitness and nutrition, introduction to PRCA business and goal setting. Instructors deliver encouragement to participants as they pursue both their rodeo careers and scholastic endeavors. We do not offer live buckouts.
Camps are geared at providing learning opportunities for cowboys just starting out that either have had little or no direction in rodeo or have been competing in rodeo and want to further learn about the fundamentals from PRCA champions.
This program has been made possible through the generous contributions of PRCA members and rodeo committees who have donated their time, talents and resources to this new program. Donations have included arenas, livestock, meals, and travel costs.
We require students to pre-register and be a member of Jr. Rodeo to attend. To register for this camp, complete the registration form, additional details will be sent via email following your registration.
