Is another Billy Etbauer or Will Lowe among us? Or, maybe a Justin McDaniel, Taos Muncy or Steven Dent?The PRCA Championship Rodeo Camp Series may help identify and encourage just such cowboys - the next generation of rodeo stars.
The Hall of Fame Buffalo Bill Rodeo committee is pitching in March 29 with a rodeo camp in Curtis. PRCA world champion bull rider is scheduled to participate. Elliot is currently the North Platte Community College rodeo coach.
The camp curriculum includes an introduction to roughstock events, with an emphasis on safety, fundamentals, chute procedures, livestock safety, overview of riding equipment, injury prevention and management, fitness and nutrition, along with an introduction to PRCA business and goal setting.
Instructors deliver encouragement to participants as they pursue both their rodeo careers and scholastic endeavors.
“This is our fourth camp, and as always we hope to help the next generation of contestants on the fast track towards competing at the PRCA level,” Buffalo Bill Rodeo Co-Chairman Jack Morris said.
Along with the PRCA, we understand the importance of getting more people interested in being professional contestants. It’s important for the future of the sport,” Morris said.
During its inaugural year, the nationwide program hosted camps in five cities.
Camps provide free learning opportunities for cowboys just starting that have had little or no direction in rodeo, or competitors who want to learn more about the fundamentals from PRCA champions.
