The environment within which our sport exists has changed rapidly over the last
few years and more and more evidence of activities is required in order to progress
within our chosen personal paddling or coaching paths.
The intention of this Log Book is for the individual to be able to record details
of events associated with paddling in which they have participated.
Hopefully this Log Book gives a way that is not too arduous to record this and is
not physically too large to take with you. Note that the sheets are A4 in size,
but if you set the print dialogue to print 2 sheet per page it will print A5 size,
which is the size that the logbook is intended to be, but it is up to you which
size you use.
The following forms are available from the links below, they can be printed and
put in your log book.
- Log Book Overview
(basically a sheet containing the details on this page)
- Log Sheet (used for recording
all your trips/training/assessments etc.)
- Record Sheet (to record when you achieved an award)
- Star Test Syllabus Sheet (individual sheet for each award)
- De-Brief Sheet (used
to get feedback from your coach after a training or assessment session)
- Personal Progress Review
Sheet (these are to detail your own personal paddling objectives and any
agreed with a coach)
- Learning from Experience Sheet
(these are just free spaces in which you can record experiences that went well or
not so well or anything else that you want to make a note of).
You only need to print the sheets which you think are relevant to you. In many cases
that might just be the Log Sheet, others may want to take advantage of the other
Note that on the Star Test Syllabus Sheets signature boxes are printed alongside
each of the individual elements of the award. These are for your coach/leader to
initial and indicate that on that day in those conditions you were proficient at
that element. This allows you to gauge your progression and when it might be advisable
to go for further training or assessment. Note that it is your decision when to
go for assessment and hence the sections do not have to be signed. Just because
they are signed does not mean that your performance on assessment will be acceptable.
Any comments or suggestions on ways to improve this Log Book are most welcome.
These sheets are a resource that SACC is making available to anyone who requires
them and they can use them as they see fit.
Though we have tried to align the information contained within these sheets to that
supplied by the National Governing Body this can not be guaranteed. Hence if clarification
of contents of Star Test Syllabus etc. is required please visit www.bcu.org.uk.
Acknowledgement goes to the BCU whose permission has been obtained in order to replicate
the Star Test syllabus information within these sheets.
