Athletes can earn a generic qualification to the WRWC by participating in Qualifier Series events. The Qualifier Series is a string of events held prior to the 2022 WRWC where athletes who nominate and place in the top spot in their respected discipline at the qualifier will earn a generic qualification to the 2022 WRWC.
Earning a WRWC Qualifier Series Generic Qualification is an important opportunity for the athlete. These earned competition positions automatically place the athlete in the Qualifying Round of the WRWC regardless of Segment W22 leaderboard position.
Up to Six (6) select women’s rodeo/standalone events hosted by WRWC and/or an approved event producer will feature women-only OPEN and CHALLENGER competition in Barrel Racing, Breakaway Roping and Team Roping.
The athlete must participate in an optional WRWC Qualifier Series Side Pot to be eligible to earn a generic qualification to the WRWC event. Participation in the WRWC Qualifier Series is verified once the athlete voluntarily nominates Segment W22 for the QS event.
The generic qualification will be given in the average round of the event to the highest placing athlete in the Pro and Challenger competition. If the event does not have an average, then the qualification will be given based on the round that determines the overall event winner.
The WRWC Qualifier Series will also feature a VRQ Fast Cash payout at the event. The Qualifier Series Fast Cash will be no less than 40% of nomination fees from the athletes participating in the WRWC Qualifier Series Side Pot.
Example: The WRWC Qualifier Series event is designated as a VRQ D3 level event with a $100 nomination fee.
– 60% of nomination = $60 per nomination applied to WRWC event prize money
– 40% of nomination = $40 per nomination applied to Qualifier Series Fast Cash at the event
VRQ Fast Cash Example: (Each leaderboard (Pro and Challenger) must have a minimum of 5 nominations for the Fast Cash to be paid) VIEW HERE
Each Qualifier Series event will also feature VRQ Expand Points to 20 places in any paid round of competition for the main competition. The Qualifier Series Side Pot is not eligible for nomination. The Expanded Points feature provides opportunities for more athletes to earn valuable W22 leaderboard points
