Created in 2004, the NHSRA Junior High Division was established to bring the excitement of the sport to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders and to serve as a feeder system into the high school ranks of the Association.  Today, all 47 states and provinces that belong to the NHSRA also produce a Junior High Division as well, with over 2,500 members in total now competing.  Junior High Division students compete in a variety of events, including Barrel Racing, Pole Bending, Goat Tying, Breakaway Roping, Tie-Down Roping, Chute Dogging, Team Roping, Ribbon Roping, and Junior Bull Riding.
Each summer, the "best of the best" from each state and province qualify for the National Junior High Finals Rodeo.  Approximately 900 competitors show off their talents in the event and compete for thousands of dollars in scholarships and prizes.  Since the first Junior High Finals was held in 2005, Gallup, New Mexico has served as the host site.
In addition, many of the same programs that are offered to high school members of the NHSRA are also offered to junior high members as well, including the Professional's Choice Student Athlete of the Month and the Professional's Choice Equine of the Month.
