Membership Info

before you buy your membership...

Be sure you understand what is involved in being a member of high school rodeo. This is especially important for new members or anyone who is new to rodeo.

RAFFLE

It is mandatory that each AHSRA member sells one book of raffle tickets (Total value $400). Raffle proceeds are extremely important to the continued operations of AHSRA – funds are used towards scholarship payouts to graduates, and to help put on our provincial finals. 

Each district has a volunteer ticket coordinator, who works with the Provincial Raffle Coordinator, Terrie Barkshire to distribute and track raffle tickets. 

Failure to hand in your raffle tickets by April 1st will result in disqualification from the Provincial Finals. 

See more details on our Raffle page.

ATTIRE & back numbers

Full Western attire is mandatory and must be worn one hour prior to rodeo time until one hour after the rodeo has ended

This includes a western hat, long sleeved shirt (must be tucked in, wrist length sleeved shirt, with collar and cuffs – no sweatshirts, T-shirts or pullover sweaters allowed), western boots, and western trousers at all times during a performance. This includes, all competition arenas, chute areas, stock working areas, any contestant in any seating area, whether competing or not. 

Shirt sleeves must be rolled down. The only exception to this rule will be in bareback riding and bull riding; a rider may roll up sleeves as necessary to eliminate either a hang up or to accommodate necessary wrapping and/or support for the elbow. After competition, contestant must adhere to attire rules. 

Back numbers must also be worn at all times while you are in the community where the current rodeo is being held. 

You may make photocopies of your back number and laminate them. Members are encouraged to have several back numbers, one for each jacket. The NHSRA issued back number is the number you should wear in the arena. See our Rules page for more details.

Happy Canadian Ag Day 🌾

A tip of the hat to all of our hard working farmers, ranchers and agricultural producers who work hand in hand to help us live this life that we love.

Thank a farmer, rancher and producer today and everyday as without them we would not have the food on our tables or the animals to compete in our sport with. For many of us the western, ranching and farming lifestyles come together as one - we are so thankful for how agriculture brings us together!
