For us the summer offers infinite possibilities…mini vacations, playing outside for hours, swimming, reading and for some of us we like using some of this free time to learn something new. Big Sis and I have found our new favorite sport that we can’t get enough of…sport stacking! Speed Stacks is the worldwide leader and originator of competitive sport stacking and they have the perfect sets to cure summertime boredom. Kids can play by themselves or compete against a sibling, parent or friend. This fun sport is something that you only get better at the more you practice!
Having a set of Speed Stacks at home during the summer can keep kids occupied for hours, while exercising their brains to combat ‘summer slide.?
- Activates both the body and brain
- Builds self esteem
- Develops/enhances athletic skills
- Promotes hand eye coordination
- Develops ambidexterity
- Stimulates reaction time
Sport stacking with Speed Stacks is one of those things kids will be eager to do over the summer. It is super addictive trying to get better at it!? My two oldest girls love to play and the rest of the family eagerly watches when someone is stacking.
The StackMat Mat provides an optimal stacking surface and features cool graphics! The Speed Stacks Pro Timer includes a memory feature and is accurate to 1/1000th of a second! Lift your hands off the timer to start and place them back down when you are done. This is a very cool set up! Every cup is laser-tested for quality/roundness as well so you know you are getting a nice set!
I knew this sport existed but I had no idea how big it really was. This July, nearly 300 stackers will compete at the AAU Junior Olympics, where competitive sport stacking is one of the 18 officially recognized sports! Big Sis loves checking out Speed Stacks videos on YouTube for inspiration and tips. She is inspired to get better at sport stacking after watching the pros do it!
The Speed Stacks Competitor Set provides everything a stacker needs to start stacking! Each kit contains 12 Speed Stacks Cups, Quick Release Stem, G4 Pro Timer that provides accuracy up to 0.001 seconds, stacking mat, carry bag and access to online stacking instructions. For ages 3-103. My 91 year old Granny has not tried it out yet but I know she would get a kick out of this too!
Physical education teachers, educators and moms alike have embraced sport stacking with Speed Stacks because it’s one of few sports that activates both the body and the brain and includes movements that ?cross the midline,? making new brain connections that cause the right and left hemispheres of the brain to work together. This communication process organizes the brain for better concentration and problem solving.
You can purchase Speed Stacks Competitor Sport Stacking Sets conveniently on Amazon. The cups come in a wide variety of colors. This set easily packs up for easy storage and travel so it can go where you go this summer. Check out the Speed Stacks website for the full lineup as well as Minis Speed Stacks which I think would make an awesome gift and even better for travel because of the small size. Happy stacking!
