Are you a rodeo athlete?

1 step

Start by nominating an event

First things first, you’ll need to create a free account. Then, use the WCRA app to “nominate” any rodeo or event you’re competing in. Nominating an event means we track your results so you can earn points, cash bonuses, and qualify for WCRA semi-finals and million-dollar major events.

Divisions & Fees:
We use objective data (such as total payout) to break events across the sport into one of four divisions. The division determines how much it costs to nominate.

Compete and earn points

How points and rankings work

Once an athlete has nominated an event (prior to competing), points are awarded if and when the athlete places and earns money. The WCRA Leaderboard is updated weekly on Wednesday afternoons.

Scoring:
Points are weighted differently for each division and are scaled for go rounds and final rounds/ aggregates.
For example

I competed at a Division 2 event that had one go-round, and it paid 3 positions. I placed 3rd, how many points would I receive?

  • 1st 36 points (18 + 9 base points + 9 “bump” base points)
  • 2nd 18 points (9 + 9 base points)
  • 3rd 9 points (base points)
Note: If an event only pays out one hole, you will receive the base points plus the “bump” base points.
