Created in 2004, the NHSRA Junior High Division was established to bring the excitement of the sport to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders and to serve as a feeder system into the high school ranks of the Association. Today, all 48 states and provinces that belong to the NHSRA also produce a Junior High Division as well, with over 2,500 members in total now competing. Junior High Division students compete in a variety of events, including Barrel Racing, Pole Bending, Goat Tying, Breakaway Roping, Tie-Down Roping, Chute Dogging, Team Roping, Ribbon Roping, and Junior Bull Riding, Bareback Steer Riding and Saddle Bronc Steer Riding.

Understanding the relationship between HS Rodeo and JH Rodeo in Idaho & District 2.....

The relationship between High School Rodeo and Junior High Rodeo can be confusing. While they are associated, they are separate. Beginning in 2014, the IHSRA District 2 Board of Directors, made the decision to invite the members of NHSRA Junior High Division to compete in their rodeo events at the District 2 rodeos. The fees to enter the JH events at District 2 rodeos are used to pay stock charges (unless the stock is donated) and to fund the District 2 Scholarship Fund for the current year Senior HS Rodeo contestants. This set-up has been a win/win for the Junior High contestants to get more practice before their State Finals and for the High School Seniors. Over the past 6 years, there has been growth to the District 2 Jr High division. Many hard working parents have worked to expand and purchase awards for the top finishers in each event and the all around boy and girl. Sponsors have donated matching western shirts for the Jr High contestants to wear at the Idaho State Finals. At this time, each Jr High Contestant is obligated to get $120 in sponsorship money to pay the Jr High fee to the State and to provide awards for our year end winners. Thank you for your interest and support of the ever growing sport of Rodeo!
