Sports Stacking Club

Children in Year 5 & 6 have been enjoying a Sports stacking club on Thursday lunch times. Sports Stacking (or cup stacking) is an exciting individual and team sport where competitors stack and unstack 12 specially designed cups in predetermined sequences at lightning speed! Students race against the clock for fastest times and race against each other in relays.

Sports stacking promotes hand-eye coordination, ambidexterity, quickness and concentration– skills needed to excel in both sports and academics. When students are Sports Stacking, they’re using both sides of their bodies and brains to develop skills necessary to dribble and shoot basketballs and netballs, throw and catch balls, play a musical instrument, type on a computer and more.
