Michigan High School Rodeo Association Membership

Mission Statement

It is Michigan High School Rodeo Association’s intent to promote high school rodeo at the state level and encourage eligible students to participate at MIHSRA rodeos. The association promotes the highest type of conduct and sportsmanship while at various rodeos. We strive to keep our Western heritage alive and active, while maintaining humane treatment of the animals we participate with. The MIHSRA encourages students to further their education after high school with an aggressive Scholarship Program.

The MIHSRA Senior Division is open to all students in grades 9-12. The Junior High Division is open to all students in grades 5-8. For specific event information, go to the Event page on this site.

The MIHSRA rodeo season begins on August 1 of the calendar year and ends on July 31 of the following year. A new member can enroll anytime during the year. Applications for enrollment are available on this site.

The National High School Rodeo Association sponsors an annual National High School Finals Rodeo and National Junior High Finals Rodeo. Participants must qualify through their state rodeo association.

Associate MIHSRA Memberships are available to the general public. This membership allows individuals to receive association communications and participate in association non-rodeo events, such as the Cowboy Prom. This membership is a non-voting membership. Please contact the association secretary for more information.
