Speed Stacks

PE Students Practice Speed Stacking

Students in Jim Hudson’s PE class practice cup stacking before winter break. Mr Hudson and other physical education professionals believe that cup stacking helps student learn fine motor skills while increasing concentration. Cup stacking is a national event that gets harder as students learn new skills. Mr. Hudson notes that, “giving students this opportunity allows them to excel in other areas of sports that children might not do well in.” Debbie Bowden PE Teacher Manor, TX notes that, "I was motivated to start a Sport Stacking program at my school as soon as I saw the teacher testimonials and outside research that has been done on the program. The development of mental awareness, hand-eye coordination and confidence all in one program is difficult to find. Not to mention the added benefits of sportsmanship and fun!" Whatever the case, our students at Sun Valley Elementary will continue this new and exciting sport!
