The National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) describes the physically educated person as one who is "fit, is physically active, is skilled, knows the benefits of physical activity, and values physical activity."

The following are NASPE standards identified by Speed Stacks, that are met through Sport Stacking and ON THE MOVE activities that incorporate Sport Stacking:

Standard #1
Demonstrates competency in motor skills and movement patterns needed to perform a variety of physical activities.

Standard #2
Demonstrates understanding of movement concepts, principles, strategies, and tactics as they apply the learning and performance of physical activities.

Standard #3
Participates regularly in physical activity.

Standard #5
Exhibits responsible personal and social behavior that respects self and others in physical activity settings.

Standard #6
Values physical activity for health, enjoyment, challenge, self-expression, and/or social interaction. Positive Physical Education

Speed Stacks believes that sport stacking fits right in to the NASPE definition of positive PE.
