Doubles

Doubles stacking is typically a Cycle stack. Two partners work together to complete the Cycle with each partner using their outside hand. It is completed the same way one person would complete the Cycle, but with two people using two different hands. Have students watch the Speed Stacks Doubles video and then try it with a member of their team. Choose one person to be the right hand and the other person to be the left hand and then practice the cycle. Use the timer when you are ready. Partners can also switch sides so they can experience using both hands as part of a doubles team.

Modifications:

  • Use the floor if tables are not available
  • Practice doubles using the 3-3-3 or 3-6-3
