Sport Stacking Competition



It’s not an Olympic sport, but it can test a person’s ambidexterity and hand-eye coordination.  I’m talking about sport stacking.  That’s where a person stacks cups in a pre-determined sequence, competing against the clock or another player.  It has become a very big deal on You Tube.

Students from Meadows, Bishop,Whitson and Highland Park Central Elementary Schools recently competed in a sports stacking tournament.  It was the idea of physical education teachers at Meadows and other schools throughout the district. Students could compete in the 9 or 12 cup category in five events.  Every school had at least one winner.

If there is enough interest among students, the sport stacking tournament could become a yearly event in Topeka Public Schools.
