In 2009, the administration of Colorado Northwestern Community College took the initial steps to create the first ever CNCC Collegiate Rodeo Team and the wheels haven’t stopped turning since.
CNCC Rodeo is based on the values that have been upheld by cowboys and cowgirls for the last 150 years, honesty, integrity, determination, discipline and hard work.
Spartan Rodeo Team members are dedicated student athletes with strong work ethic and deep running competitive spirit. Every semester our team GPA averages 3.4 with several students working hard to earn perfect 4.0 marks. Graduation rates are high among CNCC Rodeo athletes and transfers to the next step in University higher education are common.
In the arena, each year’s team has earned more points and qualified more athletes to the CNFR than the year before. The growth in competitive elite caliber athletes here at CNCC has been astronomical. There are regional and national titles in the near future for Colorado Northwestern Spartans.
Practices, Workouts, and Academics are highly structured throughout the week with focus on high energy, intensity, and the surpassing of personal and team goals.
CNCC Rodeo competes in the Rocky Mountain Region of the NIRA, traveling to rodeos throughout Utah and Southern Idaho.
