I am attempting to create a grid based off my township polygons. 

The first step asks for the Grid Template xml

All the help section gives me is a description of what the grid template xml is

any ideas.

Are you following the "Building a Map Book with ArcGIS" help guide? I think that is how I first learned the process.

To create the reference grids, you should start with the "Grid Index Features" tool under Cartography Tools > Data Driven Pages.
I have never seen it ask for a template before. It should just ask where to store your output FC, and allow you to select features to base the grids on, set a scale, etc.
