Organization Profile

Minnesota High School Rodeo Association is a self-supporting, non-profit organization. We require our members:

  • To conduct themselves in an exemplary manner.
  • To abide by a strict dress code when competing.
  • To "play by the rules".
  • To maintain their grades at the same level it takes to play high school sports in their respective schools.

Education is of paramount importance to this organization, and we have a scholarship program in place to help further the education of all of our members.

Minnesota High School Rodeo Association is a charter state of National High School Rodeo Association, Inc.  Twice each year, member states, Canadian provinces and Australian organizations meet to conduct official business of the national association.  Rules, by-laws and guidelines are distributed to member organizations through our respective National Directors.

Volunteers throughout Minnesota, North Dakota, Iowa and Wisconsin donate their time and efforts to support the student membership.   

Our Minnesota organization is divided into five regions and is governed with an overarching Board of Directors that meets monthly.  All meetings are open to the public, and voluntary participation is strongly encouraged.
