Rules to play logrolling

A beach start
1. Place log in water deep enough to float the log when rollers are on it. Follow normal safety precautions regarding diving in shallow water. To safely and efficiently learn how to log roll, it is important to step onto a still and steady Key Log. This requires the assistance of a log holder, two holders are better than one! The holder should stand in knee deep water and hold one end of the Key Log with a firm grip using your hands and arms. Another technique is to use your leg strength with the Key Log between your legs . This will take pressure off your back. Once you have a firm hold on the Key Log, communicate with the roller to let them know you are ready for them to step onto the Key Log. Keep a tight hold while they get into their proper body position and maintain their balance. Once you can see that they are steady and balanced, give them a verbal cue to begin moving their feet in an up and down motion, without pulling or pushing, as though they are marching in place. While continuing to hold the Key Log, gently, but not fully, release pressure, allowing the roller to get a feel for hisher footsteps. This allows the roller to get a head start on hisher footwork before the Key Log takes off. It helps for the instructor to give constant verbal cues to the roller, such as Steady the log, Keep your feet moving, Bend your knees. .....

2. Place the Key Log a safe distance from the edge of the pool, keeping in mind that a beginner may excitedly jump backwards away from the Key Log. Ten 10 to twelve 12 feet is a good rule of thumb. Standing close to the end of the Key Log, wrap your arms firmly around the top of the Key Log, using your forearms to apply pressure. Follow instructions above. .....
Mounting the key log from deep water
3. To get on the Key Log, stand on either side of the Key Log and place your hands on top of the log. Throw your outside leg over the Key Log, a motion similar to getting on a horse. Always face toward the center line think of the center of the log as being the head of the horse. If you are small, put your arm on the top of the log while the log holder turns the Key Log to spin you up to the top. Place your hands in front of your body and place your feet behind you on the Key Log. As you are standing up, its important to look at the opposite end of the Key Log, not at your own feet. Quickly hop up and face perpendicular to the Key Log. This should be done in one swift motion. Often, people have a tendency to stand up slowly by moving first to their knees and shins, one at a time, before standing up. It should be done a swift motion. Keep your knees bent to maintain better balance. Practice standing up and taking the correct body stance, doing it many times. .....
Proper body stance
4. Step up onto the Key Log on either side of the center line. Stand in the middle of the traction surface area. Place your feet in a comfortable athletic stance. Position your body perpendicular to the Key Log. Turn your head toward the center of the Key Log, looking at the opposite end of the log. Bend your knees slightly. Place your outside arm in front of you and your inside arm behind you. This will help with balance while rolling. Practice taking the stance over and over so that its second nature. It may be helpful to practice the proper body stance on land before stepping onto the log. .....
Fundamental rules of log rolling
5. Always look at the opposite side of the log that you are standing on, not at your own feet. This gives you proper body and spatial connection. If you Always look at the opposite side of the log that you are standing on, not at your own feet. This gives you proper body and spatial connection. If you look at your own feet, your center of balance will be drawn downward. If you look upward or outward, you have no connection with the log. Looking down the length of the log is crucial when you begin to compete against other rollers. It allows you to watch their footsteps and anticipate which direction they may try to spin the log. Never stop moving your feet. Like a treadmill, you must always keep moving your feet or else youll fall off. But unlike a treadmill, a log reverses direction without advance warning; so its imperative to always be in motion so youre never caught at a stand still. .....
Basic footwork
6. Now that you have mastered the basic stance for log rolling, its time to think about your footwork. One of the most important elements in log rolling is to never stop moving your feet! Fast footwork will enable you to stay on top of the Key Log. As a beginner, your goal is not to roll the log but to stop the log from turning by taking micro steps. If you take large steps, it will cause the log to spin faster. Once you have mastered slowing the Key Log down, you can work on controlling the speed and direction.With the log in a balanced position not rolling, begin taking VERY small FAST steps. This might feel unnatural, but it will pay off! You will be one step ahead of the rolling log. Your footwork should be in an up and down motion with as little pressure and weight on the log as possible. Heavy and weighted steps will cause the log to spin faster. Think about bringing your feet to the top of log, rather than rolling on the side of the log. Remember, the faster and smaller the steps you take, the more success you will have staying on top of the Key Log. .....
The basic steps of log rolling
7. Due to the nature of a round buoyant Key Log, it will spin in both directions evenly, depending on a rollers weight distribution. To stay on top of the floating log, a roller must either step forward up to the top, called the front step or backward to the top, called the back step. The tricky part is linking the two steps together in the transition. As a beginner, you will not feel like you have much control over which direction the log spins. As you become more advanced, you will learn to control the direction and the speed that the log spins with your footwork and weight." "The front step is just that, stepping forward on the Key Log. It requires you to move your feet in small, very fast steps. Knees should be slightly bent and the upper body should be upright. Do not lean forward from your upper body; instead, keep your weight centered over the top of the Key Log. Step with the bottom of your foot in a fast heel to toe motion, avoiding rolling up onto your tiptoes. TIP Think of moving forward from your core and focus on driving your hips and quadriceps forward to the top of the log rather than bending at the waist." "To keep control of the Key Log, rollers use a technique called the skip step. This is an asymmetrical pattern done by stepping OVER the top of Key Log with your outside foot closest to your end of the log and quickly followed up by the inside foot just to the top of the log, not over it. The over the top technique enables the roller to rein in, or brake the log. The skip step is tricky to learn on the Key Log, so practice the pattern on the pool deck or beach. Place one foot in front of you, and bring the other foot up to meet it, repeat this pattern while speeding up as you move forward." "The back step is just that, stepping backward just over the top of the log as the log spins forward. Stand upright with knees slightly bent, sinking your weight into your heels. Take very small, very fast steps. Faster than you think is necessary! The rhythm of the steps is even and staccato like. Unlike the front step, there is no variation in rhythm. While the front step uses the skip step to control the speed of the log, the back step uses your body weight. Sit back through your hips and lower body while continuously moving your feet. Here?s an easy drill to try on land so you can learn how far you need to sit back,. Grab a partner and face each other, grasp each others hands, bend your knees and lean back away from each other as though sitting in a chair. Because you are balancing off e of each ch other, you will not fall over. In the same way, the mass of the Key Log, spinning in the opposite direction will balance you. TIP The mass of the Key Log spinning forward will pull your upper body down with it. Resist this! Keep your chest up and sit backward from your hips, not from your upper body. In order to get the feeling of how much you need to sit back, it may help to overcompensate by falling off backwards into the water. This will take some practice." Once you have gained some proficiency with the front step and back step, you only need to work on the transition between the two. Easier said than done! Unlike the other steps, the transition doesn?t have a specific technique. When the Key Log is rolling and you stop it, it will usually change direction very quickly. Log rollers must be ready for this directional change to transition from front step to back step and vice versa. The necessary movements may be very subtle, requiring micro adjustments. his is where the true balancing of log rolling comes into play. Success is progressive and will come through awareness and practice. Most importantly, it?s about having fun and learning something new! There are four different sizes of logs currently used in competitions, though there are many other custom sizes used in training. Each log size has a number and color associated with it. In the United States the dimensions of the logs are standardized by the United States Log Rolling Association USLRA while CAN LOG standardizes the sizes in Canada. Can Log was established in the late 1960s to promote Logger Sports in Canada, set rules and regulations, and allow for the allocation of Canadian Championship events to the participating shows.

River dance
25. The name of the game is log rolling and its pretty simple a log rolls as two people try to balance atop it. The competition takes place on open, moving water with one participant on each end of the log. As rolling commences, propelled by the feet, competitors are known to use tactics including changing the direction of the spin, stalling the log in place and, incredibly, even hopping in order to plunge the opposite end under water a little trick known as bobbing the log to throw ones opponent off balance.

The elite among these river tap dancers are even known to dip one foot into the drink mid roll to kick water up into their opponents faces. After all of the fancy footwork, the person who stays upright the longest, or who falls in the water last, is declared the winner. And while it stimulates the crowds of today, log rolling wasnt always a form of entertainment. Beginning in the late 1800s, men were tasked with moving slews of logs great distances to keep up with the demand for timber. With the absence of trucks and roads, those in the logging industry got creative. .....

Anyone can roll
26. The legendary culture of lumberjacks has enjoyed a revival in recent years with lumberjack competitions popping up all over. Crowds of people gather to compete in events like hotsaw, springboard chop, and axe throw, though log rolling arguably invokes the most hilarity. Anyone is eligible to compete in the various categories of Junior, Adult, Semi Pro, Elite, and Masters, as long as they abide by the rules set by two main governing bodies The United States Log Rolling Association and the Canadian Logger Sports Association, known as CANLOG. Plaid and facial hair may be optional but the proper equipment is not. The axe you grabbed from your neighbours tool shed eons ago might not cut it, but standardized axes, saws and competition logs are available for purchase and are a must for lumberjacks and lumberjills in training.

All in all, if youre looking for a way to stay cool this summer and walking or running on water sounds like an attractive venture, the boisterous undertaking of log rolling may be the water sport for you. Just get ready to go for a dip because, lets face it, newcomers will likely be spending more time in the water than atop it. Not ready to roll with it?
