DY athletes will now be eligible to earn more VRQ points at events with the bigger payouts. WCRA will be enhancing how VRQ nominations and points are awarded for DY to be similar to the open level of competition with five (5) nominations and points division levels. Age-restricted (youth) events (rodeos and jackpots) will now be ranked based on objective data to break them down into five divisions. Total payout is the greatest weighing factor that places each event into each division.
WCRA DY World Champions will be crowned in all disciplines and the All Around (Men’s & Ladies) from both the 19U Junior Leaderboard and the 13-15 Youth Leaderboard. World Championship cumulative points will accrue through the entire segment (May 2, 2022 – June 25, 2023) and extend through select rounds of competition during the world championship event.
