You must be a current member to use the online entry.
ALL FINES AND TURN-OUT FEES MUST BE PAID BEFORE ENTERING A RODEO
MEMBERSHIPS must be purchased prior to competing in the rodeo in order for points to count. Please be aware that SRA memberships are not always available for purchase at rodeos that are listed with the SRA as the second-sanctioning association. See the MEMBERSHIP page for more information about purchasing membership.
Youth Cards are accepted for rodeo entry. You will be required to show proof of current membership to the rodeo secretary when paying fees in order for the permit/local fee to be waived.

Important Information Regarding Rodeo Turn-outs (refer to rulebook for additional Info)
The SRA no longer accepts medical or vet releases. Contestants will be allowed up to three turnouts per rodeo season and not be liable for fees for those turnouts. Contestants will still need to notify that they are turning out.
Contestants will be able to notify turn-outs three (3) hours or more prior to the start of rodeo performance by calling Rodeo Sports Network at 337-304-1840 to avoid paying a $25 turn-out fine for SRA sanctioned rodeos and IPRA co-sanctioned rodeos. If you are unable to reach someone at that number or for other co-sanctioned rodeos, please email the SRA office at firstname.lastname@example.org
Contestants are responsible for contacting the SRA office to inquire about the amount due for fees/turn-out fines and will be placed on the suspended list if payment of fees/fines. Also, points will not count for any rodeo that contestant competes in after such infraction if fees/fines are not paid or releases received within that time.
