Hello,


I think I know the basketball size, (women's regulation standard), but I'm not sure about the height of the rim standard for 6yr old boys.

Thank you,

I recommend that the height of the baskets be adjusted as follows to help the basketball 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.
