Sport stacking helps students use both sides of their bodies and brains promoting hand quickness and concentration. The sport can also challenge students to focus on hand-eye coordination and reaction time - important skills for almost any sport or physical activity.
Every student, no matter what his or her athletic ability, can find success with sport stacking. This developmental activity is based on the inclusion of all students. Once the basic stacks are taught, there are many activities designed to enhance an entire sport stacking unit. There is an opportunity for individual, partner, and team activities, cooperative and competitive. Sport stacking can include many positive elements such as teamwork, sportsmanship, competition, determination, achievement of personal bests and world record setting.
Successful sport stacking programmes have been established by a variety of professionals working with all ages. They include:
- Physical Educators
- Athletic Trainers
- Classroom Teachers
- Reading Specialists
- Home Educators
- Occupational, Physical and Recreational Therapists
- Special Education Teachers
- Before and After School Programme Directors
- Brain Rehab Specialists
- Children's Pastors

Sport Stacking is a fitness based sport that children from all backgrounds and abilities can do. For the athlete and non-athlete alike, regardless if you are instructing high schoolers or pre-schoolers, sport stacking can be a great enhancement for your fitness routine. With over 70 fitness based activities, sport stacking helps to motivate children to be active and fit. Teachers and parents also like sport stacking because it can be done at home. Much like a Scholastic book order encourages children to read at home, a Group Order through Speed Stacks encourages fitness at home.
One of the comments we receive consistently from teachers, parents and school administrators is how sport stacking levels the playing field for their children. Non-Athletic children can now compete head to head with their more athletic counterparts. This significantly raises their self-esteem, motivating them to work harder in PE and be excited to participate. It's a WIN, WIN!
Today schools, teachers and parents are focused more than ever on academic achievement. Sport stacking not only promotes physical fitness, but also academic learning. Students that sport stack on a regular basis have shown increases in test scores and levels of concentration. This is achieved by students using both their right and left sides of their brain. When students sport stack they are crossing the "midline" of their bodies and developing new connections in their brains. These new connections help to spur brain growth which in turn promotes greater academic achievement.
As parents we always want the best for our children academically and physically? You want your children to be active after school, watching less TV or playing fewer video games but funds are tight. How can you bring PE home to your children? Buying a basketball hoop would be good, but those are expensive and what do your kids do on cold days? Maybe your child doesn't like traditional sports! We understand! Children of all ages, abilities and personalities love sport stacking because it is fun and challenging. Teachers love sport stacking because it motivates students to be more active and fit. Parents love sport stacking because it is affordable. For as little as $17.95 you can buy your child something that benefits their body, brain and spirit! You can participate in a Group Order through your school and buy Speed Stacks gear at a discount.
