MEMBERSHIP
 




 

Membership in the Texas Senior Pro Rodeo Association (TSPRA) is open to anyone who is or will become 40 years of age or older during the membership year.

 

Membership dues are $125 for contestants and $35 for non-contestants who support senior rodeos and want to stay involved. 

Dues apply for a calendar year (January through December), and 2024 dues are now due. 

 

With over 300 members, TSPRA now includes competitors from New Mexico, Oklahoma and Louisiana, as well. In other words, the rodeos are held in Texas, but anyone 40 or over is deemed mature enough to join and compete!  Take a moment to visit all of our pages...check out our photos of real members... and see how much fun we have...
