Association Membership Rules & Qualification Requirements
All Association membership rules apply to Open and Women’s Division Teams and individual event competitors
WSRRA Membership is not mandatory to enter sanctioned events. However, a contestant must become a member of the WSRRA before competing in a WSRRA sanctioned event for the results or scores to be counted towards National Finals qualifying. WSRRA Memberships are available at the sanctioned events. Or by downloading and completing a WSRRA Membership Form and and returning it to the WSRRA office at least 24 hours before the event starts. If a contestant has sent his application form in and it has not been received please get registered at the event and once your application has been received at the office you will be refunded your membership fees.
Team size may vary between Sanctioned Rodeos, but the WSRRA Finals will be a four man team format. All members of the team must be WSRRA members prior to the start of any sanctioned event entered to qualify for the Finals. Any team with two members previously qualified for the Finals on other teams are still eligible for qualification, after replacing the prequalified members with a current WSRRA member. Replacements must have a WSRRA memberships date prior to or the same date of the qualifying rodeo. Five man teams must decide the team members and declare their four man team prior to the finals.
Any Member Replacement must be submitted in writing and approved by the WSRRA Office prior to the National Finals. The WSRRA will allow replacing two team members for the following reasons ONLY:
- Member prequalification on another team
- Accident / Injury
- Member Hardship
All team members must be current WSRRA Members at the time of qualifying for the National Finals or replacement rules will not apply.
Hardship, accident and injury rule applies only to WSRRA NFR, sanctioned rodeos hardships will not apply.
Any member can only be on one team at the finals. Women may qualify on both a Women’s Division AND an Open Division team for the finals.
The 15 Top Ranked Stock Saddle Bronc Riders and Women’s Steer Stoppers will qualify for the National Finals. All competitors for individual events will earn their way to the finals by competing at sanctioned rodeos and will obtain points dependent on their placing. The top 15 qualifiers in each event will carry their year end point totals into the finals.
