Welcome to the Coaches' Corner!

Most students learn sport stacking in their physical education classes. This ignites an interest in the sport and then they become interested in competing. The World Sport Stacking Association receives many inquiries from teachers and parents who would like to understand more about coaching competitive sport stackers. This new area of the WSSA website will be dedicated to supporting stackers in training for and competing in sport stacking competitions.

The Coaches' Corner will feature warm up ideas, exercises for improving technique and consistency, and tips from coaches, WSSA staff and the nation's best stackers. Check back each month for new training ideas and words of wisdom from experts from around the world.
