Sport Stacking Club
It's a game. It's a sport. It's harder than it looks!
Cup stacking is an individual and team sport where participants of all ability levels learn to quickly stack and unstack 12 plastic cups in specific sequences. Members may race individually or in teams, either against the clock or in head-to-head competition.
With practice, students can learn to stack at incredibly high speeds! In addition to being just plain fun, cup stacking reinforces the value of teamwork as well as the importance of practice and discipline in achieving personal goals.
What are the benefits of sport stacking?
Students improve hand-eye coordination, quickness, and ambidexterity. Students learn to use both sides of the brain. Stacking trains the brain for sports and activities that use both sides of the body. Students also learn sequencing, pattern creating/recognition, and rhythm.
Club meetings are every Friday MORNING in the large gym from 7:30-7:58. Students will enter through the gym doors in the north parking lot. When the Kearney volleyball season is over, coach Gilmore will switch club meetings from the morning to afternoons. Days for afternoon meetings will be determined later.
Students in the club will have the opportunity to compete in at least one state tournament.
