Singapore Cup Stacking Championship 2016

Over 200 primary school students will pit their stacking skills at the Singapore Cup Stacking Championship 2016 on Saturday 11 June at YMCA of Singapore. Jointly organised by Red Dot Explorer Pte Ltd and YMCA of Singapore, the competition aims to build self-esteem and confidence in children, enhance team building and social skills with their peers and foster bonding with family members.

Participants will start with a warm up before moving into the competition area where they complete 3 attempts at their chosen stack, and the best of three attempts is recorded. They will then compete in a variety of individual timed events and relay matches.

“We’ve conducted the Cup Stacking Enrichment Programme across 20 YMCA Student Care Centres earlier this year. In collaboration with Red Dot Explorer, we hope to use the competition as a platform for the students to display their skills and strengths which will in turn build up their confidence and competency,” said Ms Lynette Yeo, Assistant General Secretary (Social Enterprises), YMCA of Singapore. “At the same time, we want to foster team building skills between the participants as they learn to work together through the relay matches,” she added.

Participants will be competing for the title of the Singapore Cup Stacking Champion 2016. Awards will include Certificates for all competitors and Medals for the overall champions. The competition is open to all primary school students in the following two categories:
- Lower Primary (6 to 9 years old)
- Upper Primary (10 to 12 years old)

The event also comprises seminars for parents while the children are engaged in the competition. The seminars will help parents gain insights and practical tips to deepen communication and nurture independent and confident children.
