Millions of kids are heading back to high school and collegiate athletic fields. But what if you’re not a competitive volleyball or soccer player? What if you don’t play water polo, field hockey or any of the other fall sports?
If you’re looking for an alternative activity, the latest hot game is Sport Stacking – rapidly stacking cups into formations. According to the World Sport Stacking Association , nearly a million people in the U.S. and Canada are playing, often in P.E. classes.
Using both hands, players of all ages build stacks of cups into a pyramid and then take them back down. There are more complicated moves and competitive stackers practice an hour or more a day.
If you take the sport seriously, you can compete in national and world championships. Otherwise just post videos with your best times on YouTube along with thousands of other stackers.
