Welcome To The Cochrane Roping Club!

The Cochrane Roping Club is a fun team roping oriented club located in Cochrane, Alberta.  It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or a seasoned roper, the Cochrane Roping Club accommodates all skill levels and has something to offer everyone. We are fully equipped with roping dummies and a heel-o-matic for beginner ropers, for ropers to practice on something other than live cattle. We have long horn cattle, & our Stock page has more details on the care and handling of our animals. Our roping season starts near the beginning of May and finished near the end of September.  We rope every Tuesday evening, Wednesday evening, Thursday evening & occasional Sundays for special events. If you enjoy roping, or want to learn how to rope, and want to have a lot of fun while doing it, we encourage you to come join the Cochrane Roping Club!

Please check out tabs for practice nights, jackpot dates, youth roping program and special events.   Some roping nights may change or  be cancelled without warning (i.e. bad weather, scheduling conflicts, etc.).  Our NEW App -‘TeamSnap’ will keep you informed as to roping events and changes, but if you are ever in doubt please contact one of the board members.

Please check the NEWS page for information on work-bees, clinics and special events.
