The 3-3-3 Stack Cups are "up stacked" and "down stacked" from left to right or right to left (individual preference) in three stacks made up of three cups in each stack (3-3-3).
The 3-6-3 Stack Cups are "up stacked" and "down stacked" from left to right or right to left (individual preference) in three stacks made up of three cups on the left, six cups in the center, and three cups on the right (3-6-3).
The Cycle Stack A sequence of stacks combining a 3-6-3 stack, a 6-6 stack, and a 1-10-1 stack, in that order. Stackers conclude the Cycle stack with cups in a 3-6-3 "down stacked" position.
Doubles The Doubles Competition involves a team of two stackers working together to complete the Cycle stack as fast as they can! The challenge of this event is that one Stacker must use only their right hand while the other must use only their left hand. In other words... TWO stack as ONE!
Timed 3-6-3 Relay This event combines elements of both the "Head-to-Head Relay Competition" and the "Individual Timed Competition". It could be considered an "Individual Relay Team Competition" against the clock (not against another team), and infractions result in "scratches" rather than "penalty points".
Sport stacking not only develops important physical skills, such as hand-eye coordination, quickness and focus; it also promotes selfconfidence, teamwork and good sportsmanship. Our intent is to uphold these qualities and provide a positive experience for all.
Please understand that most everyone involved in sport stacking competitive events is a volunteer working hard to do the best job they can do. Like any athletic competition, decisions and judgments will be made-–most will be correct, some may be questionable—all will be sincere. We ask that all those taking part in a competition, including Stackers, Relay Team Coordinators, Officials and Spectators, do their best to work together, be good sports and positive role models, and have a terrific time! The WSSA follows the principles and guidelines as outlined by the Positive Coaching Alliance.
