PRCA Social Media Policy Explanation

by Scott Kaniewski | Apr 26, 2018

The social media policy is not intended to prevent PRCA contestants or fans from sharing videos of runs or rides on social media:

  • The 90 seconds of footage which can be posted for each rodeo performance and/ or slack allows someone to post up to 11 clips of 8-second rides or tie-down roping runs if those runs are edited properly.
  • Even more steer wrestling and team roping runs can be posted in that allotted time.
  • Compared to other major sports associations, this is a generous allotment of time that a cowboy or fan can post without getting the consent of the sport’s governing body.
  • Live streaming is prohibited in the arena by any person or company who does not have a licensing agreement with the PRCA. This rule has been stated in the PRCA bylaws for decades that any photo or video transmissions taken at PRCA events belong to the Association. This is not a new policy – it has been a long established PRCA rule to protect the assets of the membership.
  • Due to the advancements in social media video streaming, we must begin to enforce this bylaw now at our PRCA rodeos.
  • This policy falls in line with every other major sport in America – live streaming is prohibited at NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL games, and the list of sports which don’t allow it is extensive.
  • We still strongly encourage our athletes to post their rides and runs and share them with the fans of rodeo to help grow the sport.
  • We also encourage fans to take video of their favorite competitors at our rodeos, and to post up to 90 seconds to their social media accounts. We are simply asking that they stay within the time frame, and do not participate in any live streaming without a licensing agreement from the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.
