Tiered DY Leaderboard

WCRA will implement a tiered leaderboard system for DY beginning with the 2023 season. Athletes 13-19 years of age are eligible to nominate events toward the DY leaderboards. Maximum and minimum ages are based on the athletes age on the first day of the world championship event (estimated date July 25, 2023).

  1. Junior Classification – 19U (19 years of age to 13 years of age)
  2. Youth Classification – 13-15 (athletes 13 years of age up to 15 years of age). If an athlete between the ages of 13-15 prefers to participate in the Junior Division, they may opt-out of the Youth Division.
  3. Athletes may only participate in one DY leaderboard at a time.
  4. Athletes are not required to participate in the DY23 leaderboard to be eligible to enter the Cinch World Championship Junior Rodeo. Athletes 19 and under may enter as Open Athletes once event entries open prior to the event.

With the separation of athlete competition at WCRA events, Junior & Youth athletes participating in the DY leaderboards will now be eligible to simultaneously participate in the WCRA TCR / WRWC open leaderboards.

  1. Open Disciplines – Bareback Riding, Saddle Bronc Riding, Steer Wrestling: Must be a minimum of 15 years of age to nominate and must be 16 years of age to enter and compete at the event.
  2. Open Disciplines – Bull Riding: Must be a minimum of 18 years of age to nominate, enter and compete at the event per PBR membership rules.
