I tried training a team last year and had limited success. I just felt I could do better but I'm not sure where to start. We are open to any constructive suggestions.
My thank in advance for any help at all.

I have trained a couple of teams throughout the years and have some success. The Texas FFA website has all the information that we need or our contest. I'll attach the link so you can look at the information and see if you'll benefit from any of it.
Thank you for your quick response. I appreciate it and will take advantage of it .
I make up a study guide for my team, each member gets their own. This helps with the individual events like a question bank, identification of breeds, parasites, and equipment. There are also scenario examples they can look over. I have pictures for the identification parts. Then I have students research the topic of that year and come together for practices and how they want to do their presentation.
I also integrate the vet science contest into my small and large animal science classes so I can do some 'recruiting' from those since the students have gotten a lot of the information in class, it is not so much studying for them.
