Welcome to the UVU Rodeo team. Our full-time student athletes attend UVU while competing at intercollegiate rodeos throughout the year. UVU Rodeo takes pride in our western roots and the hard work ethic, grit, and determination of our pioneer heritage.

UVU Rodeo is a college rodeo team of students with diverse backgrounds, providing a place for students from rural or underserved communities across Utah and the rest of the country. The UVU Rodeo team empowers students to complete their degrees while participating in the rodeo program, and many of our student athletes are first-generation college students.
