After taking a pre-test by Purdue Pegboard test, randomly were divided subjects into two groups: the experimental group (n = 20) and control group (n = 20). Speed stacking training was performed in 4 weeks, 45 min sessions, 4 times per week. So post-test was taken after training sessions. Data were analysed using analysis of Covariate (ANCOVA) were used. Data analysis by software Spss (version 22) and the level of significance was 0.05.
Results: The results showed that speed stacking training on variables speed of manual dexterity has a (P<0.05). But had no significant effect on the accuracy of manual dexterity (P>0.05).
