For your scouting pleasure, here are my EYO scout files:
**The pictures aren't updated, but the files are updated to the new requirements that went into effect January 1, 2016. If you see any mistakes in the files, let me know.
Rank Requirements Tracking Sheet - I had something very similar to this with the old requirements passed on to me from another leader, so I HAD to have it with the new requirements. You're welcome! Excel version
Now just a fun tip on teaching knots. I learned this from one of my great scouting heroes, Kathee from the Snake River Council (if you're from up there, you know who I'm talking about). She was a Scoutmaster for a community unit and would take her boys to scout camp, where those that didn't know her wondered why a girl was there. By the end of the week they would be asking her how she got her boys to know and do the things they did. For knots, she had a different color of paracord for each knot, and once they could pass off the knot (not just tying it once, but maybe learning it one meeting and passing it off the next), they would earn the rope for that knot. If every they couldn't show her or the patrol leader the knot, they would lose the rope. YIKES! I guarantee no boy wants to lose a rope he's earned. Plus, with a rope in hand, they can go home and practice, and they do. They get their first rope when they cross the bridge from cub scouting to boy scouting - I have them tie a square knot when they get to me, and when they do it, they get a carabiner (to hang their ropes on and clip to a belt buckle) and a red rope. Colors really don't matter. For the basic knots I cut them about 4 feet long. They have to do all 3 lashings to get the rope for that, but that rope is 7-8 feet long. Paracord is cheap - we have a store locally that sells it by the foot for 7 or 8 cents per foot, depending on the quality. Works out to be less than $3/boy for a set of ropes.
Here is a list of fun game ideas to reinforce the knots they learn.
I hope the files are helpful! Feel free to share this page with other 11 year old scout leaders.
If you know Wolf scout leader that needs some good tracking documents, I've got those as well, right here.
