Description: Cup Stacking is an individual and team sport that involves stacking specialized cups in specific sequences, competing against the clock or other players. Sequences are usually pyramids of three, six, or ten cups. The sport teaches cooperation, ambidexterity, reaction time and hand-eye coordination to name a few. The skills learned while cup stacking transfer over into the classroom in many ways. It helps students develop bilateral proficiency equal performance on both sides of the body. By increasing bilateral proficiency, a student develops a greater percentage of the right side of the brain, which houses awareness, focus, creativity and rhythm. Stacking helps train the brain for sports and other activities where the use of both hands is important, such as playing a musical instrument or using the computer. Sequencing and patterning are also elements of sport stacking, which can help with reading and math skills. Plus it’s just FUN!
