All Star Team Roping is a new and exciting format that is designed to put the contestants FIRST and the producers SECOND. We have taken the finest points of other associations and combined them to create what we believe to be an ALL STAR lineup. We are committed to being an honest and upfront association producing the best Team Ropings we can. We will have Qualifier events followed by a year end Finals. At the Finals there will be a Preliminary as well as an Invitational Roping. Our goal is to give ropers the opportunity to rope against fewer teams and win more money.
There are eleven divisions at an All Star roping:
#16, #14, #13,#12, #11, #11 Executive (25 & older), #10, #10 Executive (25 & older) #9, #9 and #8.
Check the flyer for caps and floors on individual divisions.

WHAT IS THE INVITATIONAL?
The goal of the Invitational is to produce a high paying roping with a small amount of teams to compete against. There will be approximately 30-100 teams in each Division Invitational while having added money from the producers. At each qualifying event, 5% of the producers commission will be allocated toward that division's Invitational. For example: 100 Teams at 8 qualifiers totals $12000 added to that division.
Each division will have an Invitational. The Invitational will be 4 head aggregate progressive after 2, with the exception of the #8 which will be a 4 head aggregate progressive after 1. These will be ran at the Finals directly after the Preliminary Roping. The added money for the Invitational is all from the Producers not the Ropers!
HOW TO GET AN INVITATION?
After the roping concludes and the winners are paid, the TOP 3 Teams in the Average will receive an Invitation for that particular division. Ropers will have to accept the invitation or it will advance to the next team in the average. Members will be allowed to enter each Invitational division 2 times as long as its not with the same partner.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO ACCEPT THE INVITATION?
The Invitation must be accepted on the day of the event, if you decline the invitation you will forfeit your invitation and we will contact the next team down in the average and give them an invitation.
WHAT IF MY PARTNER IS UNABLE TO ACCEPT THE INVITATION?
If your partner is unable to accept the invitation, you will have until the deadline to find another partner to enter the Invitational with or you will forfeit your invitation as well.
WHAT IF I ALREADY HAVE 2 INVITATIONS FOR THAT DIVISION?
You and your partner will be eligible to rope in the next division up together or you will have to forfeit your invitation. Your partner will have until the deadline to find an alternate partner.
WHAT IF OUR TEAM NUMBER GETS RAISED?
We will verify all Invitational entries team numbers before the finals. You will be allowed to rope in the next division up together or we will allow you to split and both find other partners.
WHAT IF OUR TEAM NUMBER GETS LOWERED?
You will not be allowed to rope in the division down. You will have the option to stay in the division you were invited to or split the team and find alternate partners for that division, or draw out of the Invitational.
