Learn the Basics

Sport Stacking is an exciting individual and team sport where participants stack and unstack 12 specially designed plastic cups in pre-determined sequence.

Check out the video below for an introduction into sport stacking, then visit the Speed Stacks store to learn all about the special cups and mats top stackers use.


The most important thing to do when sport stacking is to use BOTH hands. That doesn’t mean picking up a cup with one hand and passing it to the other to set cups in place. Each cup should be handled by only one hand. Use both hands to stack but never on the same cup.

You’re probably already pretty good at it. Do you play a musical instrument? Type on a computer? Play video games? If you do, you’re probably using both hands.

When you use both hands, you’re using both sides of your brain and promoting right brain development which houses aspects like awareness, focus, creativity and rhythm. Sport stacking helps these skills too! Get a set of Speed Stacks and try it out!
