Attention All Current and Prospective Rodeo Judges
Please note the following  excerpt from the SRA rulebook pertaining to rodeo judges:
“All judges must be approved by the SRA Board of Directors, hold a current SRA card and be a member in good standing to judge a rodeo. Judges will be required to attend a judging clinic at least once every three years. Judges will be classified by the Board of Directors as "Certified" or "Qualified". There must be at least one Certified Judge at each rodeo.  Any person seeking to be approved as a judge must submit a request to the SRA Board of Directors after attending an SRA judging clinic.”

Attention Rodeo Contestants

The topic of the dress code at rodeos and the enforcement of the rule regarding dress code has become a recent concern.  In order to maintain the level of professionalism that the association would like to portray to the public and current or potential rodeo committees and sponsors, the SRA Board of Directors would like to remind members of the importance of following this rule.  The rule states, "Members will be presentable in western attire when competing in approved rodeos.  Appropriate long sleeve shirts (sleeves rolled down and tails tucked in) and western hats must be worn in the arena, the back of the bucking chutes and on rodeo grounds within fifty (50) feet of arena by all contestants or anyone in the arena one hour prior to and during a performance and slack."  Thank you for your cooperation.
