FORT WORTH, TEXAS – For the third year in a row, Resistol in partnership with The Cowboy Channel, will host the Resistol Rookie Roundup on April 26th and 27th at 7:30 pm in the Fort Worth Stockyards Coliseum.

Sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, the top 15 PRCA rookies in each event, in their first year as card holders, will compete for $100,000. The Cowboy Channel will produce and broadcast the event.


The first performance on April 26th will feature all 15 contestants in a single go-round competition. Then, the top eight will continue to the semifinals on April 27th with the top four advancing to the championship round in the same performance.

In addition to competing for $100,000 in total prize money, each contestant will learn skills in becoming a professional rodeo athlete and be able to compete with their peer group. They will attend media training, Cowboy Channel interviews, sponsor training and PRCA discussions. Each will receive a gift bag of items from The Cowboy Channel that can be used to help them travel down the road during their rookie year.

The Cowboy Channel will also produce a series of roundtables with the participants in each event hosted by “mentors” in the sport meaning past of the Resistol Rookie of the Year, World Champions, or NFR Qualifiers. The mentoring and training is intended to prepare the first year professionals for their career ahead.

The Resistol Rookie of the Year Award is one of the most coveted awards that can be earned by PRCA and WPRA members as they can only earn it once in their career. Money won during the Cowboy Channel Rookie Roundup presented by Resistol will count towards the Resistol Rookie Standings but will not be credited towards PRCA | RAM World Standings for NFR qualification.


Entries will be open to qualified PRCA rookies on April 1, and close on April 2 at 10 a.m., through the PRCA’s PROCOM entry system.
