Here are some dimensions for you...

Hey Dano,

Thanks for the great basketball question.

19'9" is the regulation for high school. The 3 point line isn't normally modified - unless the youth basketball league changes the dimensions for certain age groups.

Personally, I think most 11 year olds aren't strong enough to shoot a 3 pointer with proper shooting form. They usually have to change their form, by pushing the basketball, in order to get it to the hoop.

If you check out my page on basketball court dimensions, you'll find all the information you need.
