          We would like to welcome you to the second U.S. Junior Steer Wrestling Championship taking place on October 9, 2022 in Marble Falls, Texas. This championship will allow young men the opportunity to determine who the best Junior Steer Wrestler is. As these young men begin their journey to competition as a professional rodeo cowboys, they will see the grit and determination it takes to compete at the highest level. Our goal is to spotlight and bring recognition to the highest level of Steer Wrestling performed by young men all over the world under the age of 19. Contestants earn World Championship points for the Ote Berry Junior Steer Wrestling Championship Tour.

       The champion will be crowned after competing in a 3 round qualifier and a four man match tournament. The qualifier has $3,000 added money with a $1,000 bonus to the average winner. The four contestants with the most money won in the 3 round qualifier will advance to the match play tournament. The semifinals will be two four head matches pairing the top money winner against the fourth place money winner and second and third the fastest total time on four in each match will meet in the finals to determine the Champion. The Champion wins $5,000 and the Reagon Walker Buckle and the Reserve Champion wins $2,500. The fastest time of the day in the qualifying rounds or matches will receive a $1,000 bonus. 

       We appreciate the contestants performing in this championship, our sponsors and foundations for their contribution to make this championship happen, and the Marble Falls Rodeo Association for allowing us to host the very first U.S. Jr. Steer Wrestling Championship on their dirt.

The reunion will also give everyone in the rodeo community an opportunity to visit and honor the cowboys that are no longer with us such as Leon Bauerle, a 7-time qualifier for the National Finals Rodeo, and a great friend and mentor to generations of Steer Wrestlers in and out of the arena.
