Height recommendations...
by: Joe Waters - webmaster

I recommend that the height of the baskets be adjusted as follows to help the players practice proper shooting form.

-Age 6 to 9 years old - Basket height of 8 feet.

-Age 10 to 12 years old - Basket height of 9 feet.

-Age 13 and older - Basket height of 10 feet.

Not more than 8 feet....
by: Joe Waters - webmaster

For 6 - 9 year olds, the basket should be 8 feet high.

If you have a hoop that can be lowered more than that, that's even better for 5 - 6 year olds.

The object is to have them experience success as they are shooting the basketball. Adjust the basket so that the players are able to shoot the ball comfortably and with success.

Best of luck!

Helpful Basketball Info...
by: Joe Waters - webmaster

Hey Cody...thanks for the basketball question.

The regulation height for a basketball rim is 10 feet. This applies to junior high basketball and up. Sometimes, at the lower levels of play, the rim will be lowered so the basketball players can have more success shooting. But for 9th grade basketball, the height is 10 feet.

If you need more information on basketball dimensions, check out this page...

Best of luck!
