Speed Stacking in London Schools

Have you heard about Speed Stacking yet? It's all the rage in London schools . It's basically a game where students take cups and stack them (like a pyramid) as quickly as they can. Incredibly simple, the sport is catching on in primary & secondary schools across London. My year 6 students a few years ago absolutely loved the competition.

According to Speed Stacks, Inc. Sport Stacking helps promote:
  • hand-eye coordination
  • ambidexterity
  • quickness
  • concentration
...skills needed to excel in most any sport or life.

Students compete against each other and even go to other schools just like they would with soccer or any other sport. Check out the video above to watch the sport in action.

It's always a great idea for teachers to get involved in extracurricular activities, so if your school doesn't have speed stackers yet, you could be the first to introduce the game to your school.
