Below is an explanation of AHSRA for your school principals should they require further information. You can find this on our Provincial page under forms so you are able to print one off. 

What is Alberta High School Rodeo?
 
The Alberta Hight School Rodeo Association is an all youth rodeo association with 450 members in grades 6 through 12, who all compete in rodeo.  There are sanctioned rodeo events in various locations all   over   the   province, ending   in   provincial   finals   to   compete   the   provincial championships in each event.
 
 
Through the AHSRA, our athletes develop their skills and gain experience in their specific events, besides the opportunity to spend time with their peers and families while competing in an organized sport.
 
 
This is an amazing journey for these young rodeo athletes, and to be able to compete at a provincial level, with opportunities to qualify for provincial titles, and on towards Canadian and World titles.
 
Our members must have a rodeo consent form completed by parents and principals of their school to compete each weekend.  We support their growth in rodeo as well as the importance of their education. It is a requirement in the NHSRA rulebook the students are in good standing at their school and this is the way the member provides the proof of that to be eligible to compete in the association.  This does not attach the school to any liability issues, it only provides approval that student is in good standing at the school.
 
If one of your students is successful in becoming the Provincial Champion, we provide a banner to be on display at their school to honor the accomplishment they have made for years to come. We are also able to provide certificates of participation for any of our members, for you to present at your athletic awards presentations.  This sport is as much comparable to the other sports provided in the schools, as the members gain an enormous amount of leadership, sportsmanship and responsibility.
 
These young rodeo athletes have worked and continue to work to develop the skills and proficiencies needed not only to compete in the rodeo arena but to help them become, productive, organized young adults, while having fun in a family-oriented environment. The youth are our future!
 
If you have any questions about our association please contact Patricia McKean Board Chair 403.875.2969 AHSRAChair@gmail.com or our Secretary Betty Leischner 403.994.0824 betty.ahsra@gmail.com or visit our website at www.albertahsrodeo.com.
 
Sincerely,
 
AHSRA Board
