Schedule two training sessions. The ﬁrst will be two hours to review rules and set the tone for the upcoming six weeks. This is the perfect time to discuss expectations and issues or trepidation students feel. Some trainers might want to encourage students to begin a competition journal to jot down anything that comes up during the process. It can be as basic as taking notes to remind themselves of a backcombing method they need to use and areas where they need improvement, but they can also write down their reasons for competing, goals they wish to achieve, or other personal feelings they are experiencing on their journey. Just as a person training for the marathon would log his/her miles each day, students can log and track their progress to reinforce their learning. The second session in week one will be another two-hour session when the design will be established and students can discuss how they will accomplish the look within the time allotted.

The ﬁrst four-hour training session will be more tortoise than hare – slow and steady. Demonstrate the process, then have students perform the design and watch them closely. Be hands-on but also introduce scoring them just as they will be scored on competition day. While you do not want to discourage them, it is also important they get used to the technical and emotional pressure they will be under. Keep students upbeat and focused on perfecting their technical craft. At the session’s end, make sure they know what to work on – give them homework – for the next short session.
This is the halfway point. Schedule a short session so students can go over trouble spots and weaknesses. They should be working on the design even when they aren’t in the training session. What skills need a tune-up? What don’t they understand? Is everyone following the rules and starting to feel comfortable?
