ABCRA Youth Development Program – ‘Investing in Our Future’

The ABCRA are excited to announce our new Youth Development Program, an initiative conceived to provide our Youth with encouragement, opportunities & support while improving and developing their skills for the future.  

The creation of a Youth Development Program will see our Association nurture Youth Members while providing positive support and guidance when achieving their goals in any equine discipline.

Recently, the ABCRA was approved by the Australian Active Kids Program allowing Junior Members to utilise their $100 Active Kids Program Voucher to renew their Membership with the remainder of the voucher funds applied to our Youth Development Program.

Our goal is to further raise money for our Youth Development Program through Sponsorship and Government Grants to fund Youth Camps and Educational programs throughout Australia.
Youth Camps will provide an opportunity for Junior Members to experience different equine disciplines including Rodeo, Campdraft and Ranch Sorting. Leading Competitors and Coaches will guide and train our Youth along with instilling the importance of good manners, behaviour and respect.

Earlier this year, a passionate and dedicated group of Charles Sturt University students in Wagga Wagga founded Australia’s first college rodeo club drawing in 130 equine enthusiasts.
Aimed at supporting and encouraging those keen to try something new, the CSU Rodeo Club wants to grow involvement in the rodeo circuit and facilitate training sessions for those interested in learning more about several events. The ABCRA are proud to support the CSU Rodeo Club and endeavour to introduce and develop further University Rodeo clubs throughout Australia. 

We aim to establish a Youth Development Committee who will focus on how we structure our programs, Government Grants and other opportunities available to help grow our program.

If you or your business would like to be a part of our Youth Development Program please get in contact with us today.
