The Trax Spreadsheets are a collection of FREE spreadsheets developed by Frank Steele of Troop 615, Coastal District, Bay Area Council of League City, TX. They are for use by Scouters to keep track of advancements, awards, training, and even popcorn sales. Most are available in versions for both Microsoft Excel and OpenOffice Calc.

There are several series of the Trax Spreadsheets, each dedicated to a different level of Scouting or use.

RecordTrax: This spreadsheet is intended to be your permanent record summary sheet for keeping Track of Den Records over the years. At the end of their Cub Scout careers, trying to remembering who earned the World Conservation Award as a Bear and who didn't, as well as exactly how many silver arrow points each kid in your den earned as a Wolf becomes very important when it is time to create their Career Arrows. This is the sheet you keep and update as the years go by.

EventTrax: Helps keep track of attendance at various Scouting events. Cub Scout leaders need to keep track of attendance at Summertime Activities, and District Events. They may also want to keep track of who attended Raingutter Regattas, and Pinewood Derbies, etc.

ScoutTrax: Covers the Scout badge to 1st Class.

EagleRequiredTrax: Covers all the requirements for all 15 Eagle-required Merit Badges. Contains all current revisions. As BSA revises their merit badges (always effective January 1 2008), this spreadsheet will not only update to reflect the new requirements, but it will also keep a copy of the old requirements for one calendar year to allow scouts to finish up their partials, as per BSA policy.

  • Used for helping track popcorn sales at the individual, unit, or district level. I didn't write this tracker, but it is such a slick tracker and a wonderful and unique tool that I felt obligated to include a link to it from this site
