Each junior high team will be allowed to have either three or four members. One or more alternates may be entered as substitutes. Senior youth may only participate once at the national contest in Louisville. Agents are responsible for certifying eligibility.

Senior Age Division: Contestants must be 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th graders as of January 1, 2019. Team members must have reached their 15th birthday during the current contest year, but have not passed their 19th birthday. (Contestants may attend a college beyond high school to participate in Louisville. However, club members who enroll in or audit a dairy science or animal science course prior to the fall term are not eligible.)
