General Information:

  • This is a competition for years 5/6.
  • Teams of 4 (no gender ratio).
  • It is strongly recommended that stackers use alternate hands when up-stacking and down-stacking. Stackers usually begin with their dominant hand.
  • Stackers MUST begin from either the left or the right side of the three stacks. They MUST NOT begin with the middle stack.  Stackers usually begin at the side that is opposite to their dominant hand i.e. Right-hand-dominant stackers usually begin with the left stack so they are leading with their dominant hand.
  • Stackers must always stack in their chosen direction i.e. once they have up-stacked the three stacks, they must go back to the beginning before they begin down stacking the stacks in the same order that they up-stacked them.
  • Stackers MUST finish one stack before moving on to the next. Simultaneous stacking of more than one stack is not allowed. This would be a ‘scratch’.
  • If the stacker fumbles during the up-stacking phase they must correct it before continuing. If they fumble and they have already moved on (because they are going so fast), they must return the cups they are stacking to their previous position before going back and fixing the fumble.  They may then carry on.
  • If the stacker fumbles during the down-stacking they can correct it at any time before the timer is stopped.
  • If the timer is stopped accidently before completing any sequence this is a ‘scratch’.
  • If the timer is started by accident before the stacker has begun, this can be reset.
  • If stacks are knocked over before the timer is stopped, this is a scratch.
  • If a scratch occurs during the official timed events, no time will be recorded.
  • The official cups of sport stacking are Speed Stack Cups and the official timing device is a Stack Mat. This official equipment must be used when competing in Sport Stacking Competitions.
