Gymkhana Organizations pose a few unique challenges. Multiple age groups/divisions, high number of events per competitor, mostly volunteer admins, executives and secretaries, and event rules that vary by age group. Gymkhana events can be many and varied but the time keeping / score keeping follows basic rules which are easily tracked in the RodeoReady App.
Having worked with over 50 junior and youth organizations, we can appreciate the challenges of handling youth competitions. Gymkhana is no different in that the complexity is more in the volume than any individual event. We have built the most feature-rich rodeo software solution on the market with many of these challenges in mind.
Not only is there complexity in many event and age group combinations, but there is a tremendous volume of work needed to keep all this straight and keep track of results, standings, membership status, and more.

handling the volume
There is no limit to the number of members, number or events, or number of competitions. Often the work is simply keeping all the data straight. With the RodeoReady App, all data is stored on our cloud-based servers and once entered never needs to be re-entered. We have handled rodeo competitions with nearly 1000 event entries and the system is designed to handle more than 10 times that volume.
