Congratulations to all the Western Canadian student athletes who competed in the 2016 Canadian College Finals Rodeo Finals proving why they deserve to be head of the class in 10 events – tie down roping, steer wrestling, saddle bronc riding, bareback riding, barrel racing and bull riding in addition to team roping, goat tying, breakaway roping and pole bending.
Some students prefer collegiate football, drama or even chess, but the young men and women of the Canadian College Finals Rodeo (CCFR) are most comfortable in the dirt. This year, up to 120 student athletes from 18 schools across Western Canada competed during their regular school semesters while maintaining a minimum grade point average and a current membership of the Canadian Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. By supporting the CCFR, you’re supporting the Canadian Intercollegiate Rodeo Association – a student run organization that promotes rodeo as an extracurricular activity. Their hard work and your support is what will ensure the future success of the rodeo and agriculture industries in this country.
