It's all right here! We wish you well for an active, fun and record-setting 2017 STACK UP!
Since 2006, the WSSA has set a new Guinness mark every year for “Most People Sport Stacking at Multiple Locations in One Day." Each year, the WSSA submits a formal application to attempt the record on Guinness World Records Day. Once all organizers and their witnesses submit their verifications after the event, the total count is sent to Guinness for official validation. The number to beat: 622,809!
We're happy to report the most recent 2016 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records includes our STACK UP! record of 592,292 as well as other Sport Stacking records. You can find our record at: guinnessworldrecords.com

Many organizers choose to combine STACK UP! with a good cause that will benefit their school communities.
Though we believe sport stacking and fitness are reason enough to celebrate, we applaud schools that take it a little farther to make a positive difference. Stocking up food pantries, donating coats, hats, socks and school supplies, collecting pennies for research or disaster relief, involving families, inviting community members to take part—we thank you for warming so many hearts right before the holidays!
Worried about signing up for STACK UP! if you can't be there to run it? We've created a simple lesson plan you can give a substitute teacher so that your school can still be included. We kept it in Microsoft Word format so feel free to edit as needed.
