Western boots must be worn and “sneaker type sport shoes” are not acceptable footwear. No tobacco or alcohol advertising on shirts, hats, etc.
You are required to wear back number at contestant dances/socials. Western trousers, western shirts (or short sleeved conservative shirt) and footwear. Hats and western boots are optional. (Conservative means a shirt/t-shirt with no belly showing, no tank tops, no inappropriate slogans or picture, etc.) Note: Cowboy Prom is the only exception!

All helpers, judges, arena workers, contractors, assistants or parents in the arena/chute areas are expected to follow dress code – western attire: long sleeved shirts, cowboy hats, cowboy boots, & trousers.
Students involved in High School Rodeo must have passing grades and good conduct in school. An entry form must accompany each contestant to each rodeo. One form is required for a two-day weekend rodeo in the one location. Forms must be completed and filled out properly requiring both parents’ signatures. Parent and teacher signatures cannot be photocopied. Failure to produce completed entry forms will result in not being able to compete at a rodeo.
-Drinking is Prohibited at ALL High School Rodeo Functions-
That if required documentation such as entry forms or report cards are not received after being requested by the secretary, the Friday prior to Monday of call entry, members will be ineligible to enter further rodeos until required documentation is recieved. Members will be placed on suspension.
That we accept teacher’s signature for each rodeo and year end report card in June. In the event that students do not meet NHSRA standards, students will not compete at National Finals. Suggestion for report card collection that has been done in the past:
- report card to come in with membership in July/August;
- one in November at midterm;
- one in March at midterm (gets eligibility for provincial finals);
- those that qualify for NHSRF & CHSRF hand in their final report card at year end so that secretary or someone going to NHSRF or CHSRF has a copy in case eligiblity is questioned. These report cards can be added to the student’s new memberships for the following season.
