South Dakota Region Map

You must rodeo in the region your school is in unless you request a transfer for one of two reasons –

  1. A custody situation where one parent lives in a different region than you attend school in.
  2. You are team roping with a person from another region than you attend school in.
  • If this is the case, the person wanting to transfer must contact a Director from the region they are leaving AND the region the are requesting to transfer to, and get their permission. March 1st is the deadline for region transfers.
