What to look for in a basketball hoop? There are some additional factors to consider when buying a basketball hoop including installation, the basketball goal's backboard, height adjustability, overhang, pole finish, size, and shape, basketball rim and net, and accessories.
After purchasing a Goalrilla basketball goal online, you will receive an email from Goalrilla Basketball detailing your order information and your tracking number. Orders typically ship within 24-48 hours and vary on arrival time based on distance from our Evansville, Indiana, warehouse.
Semi-portable in-ground goals, on the other hand, are mounted onto a completely separate anchor system that is cemented into the ground. This provides the same stability of a direct-burial post while still allowing the goal to be moved to a new location (if you move to a new home, for example). Then, only a new anchor kit is needed, rather than an entirely new basketball system. Goalrilla and Goalsetter goals feature this type of installation. Most residential high end hoops have moved to this system for both ease of installation and portability when moving.
The rim of the basketball goal should be made of steel to ensure strength and stability. The rim should be at least 19mm thick. Thinner rims may seem more cost-effective initially, but are prone to bending and even breaking over time. This means a lower quality rim could also pose a safety hazard. For outdoor hoops, we recommend a rim that is finished with a weatherproof paint to reduce the risk of rust.
Static or standard rims have no spring, meaning the rim cannot flex. This puts added pressure on the backboard and is not ideal for dunking since the extra pressure can cause the backboard to shatter. The cheaper version of these rims are typically found on portable basketball goals which are not meant to be dunked on. Sometimes they are found on higher end goals, for example a commercial application where they are looking to deter dunking. Goalsetter even offers a double ring static rim that is considered extremely durable for commercial applications.
A breakaway rim, on the other hand, contains a hinge and a super strong spring (or springs) at the point of attachment to the backboard. This allows the rim to bend downward and then snap back into place when a player dunks on the goal without affecting the backboard. Exposed spring breakaway rims are open underneath with the springs exposed (hence the name). This is not preferred for outdoor use since exposure can lead to rust. Goalrilla carries both a medium weight and heavy weight flex rim.
Height adjustability is an important consideration, particularly when buying a basketball hoop with younger players in mind. Goals that can be adjusted lower make the hoop accessible for younger children, or players who simply desire a lowered rim. Look for a goal that includes a removable actuator handle so you can lock the height in place and prevent unwanted height adjustments.

Silverback's portable basketball goals offer increased stability for better rebound and playability, easier portability, and easy assembly. The Silverback NXT portable basketball goals offer great benefits over traditional portable basketball hoops such as a steel base and premium backboard.
Many portable hoops have complicated assemblies that can take anywhere from 3-6 hours to complete. However, the NXT basketball goals only take 90 minutes to assemble with easy-to-use instructions and many pre-assembled parts. Our instructions include detailed diagrams and correspond to clearly labeled parts and hardware, so you can start playing in no time.
The Goaliath and Silverback wall-mounted basketball goals install the hoop to a garage, barn, school or camp building, gym, and more. You can install them to any wall indoors or outdoors and the hoops deliver the same quality performance as an in-ground basketball goal does. Our wall-mounted basketball hoops are height adjustable and feature the pro-style breakaway rim to protect the backboard and to prevent player injuries. Additionally, our wall-mounted basketball goals come partially preassembled with attached hardware so you can assemble your hoop in 120 minutes or less!
Basketball goal and basketball hoop are two terms which are often used interchangeably. Our customers frequently ask us if there is a difference between basketball hoops and basketball goals. When it is time to shop for sports equipment, it is helpful to understand the terminology, after all. Technically, the goal or hoop refers to the orange rim that is mounted to the backboard, but in common language, the terms are used when people are referring to the complete sets that make up basketball systems. Here at First Team Sports, we use the term basketball goals when referring to either complete basketball goal systems or the rims themselves. We offer a comprehensive line of made in the USA indoor and outdoor sports equipment: basketball backboard systems (wall mount basketball goals or on a post) for team sports, adjustable goals for kids, portable goals for indoor games and driveway outdoor play, and commercial basketball goals that can stand up to the most aggressive playgrounds. Our basketball buying guide and basketball goal pictures can help you understand the differences between the types of basketball equipment for sale. Call First Team today to get started!
A complete basketball system consists of the same general parts, whether it is an in ground basketball goal, a portable basketball goal, or an adjustable portable goal.
Backboard: Backboards can be rectangular or fan shaped, and are available in many different sizes and materials. First Team offers everything from regulation size tempered glass wall mount backboards for colleges to an affordable acrylic backboard and rim combo-portable basketball system units for home use. (Acrylic provides a better rebound than a polycarbonate backboard). We also offer backboards in steel, perforated aluminum, fiberglass, and smoked tempered glass.
Rim: The orange ring from which the net hangs. Can also be called the goal or hoop. Options include the competition breakaway steel rim, heavy duty or recreation flex goal, and the fixed rim. First Team also offers ultra heavy double rims for playgrounds where aggressive play is the norm.
Extension Arm (or boom): The extension arm projects forward from the vertical post to create the overhang for the safe play area. On fixed inground basketball goals, the extension arm does not move. On a First Team portable basketball goal, the extension arm folds down to a height that can easily fit under a door frame for storage next to your outdoor power equipment in the garage or roll into a storage closet in your gymnasium. Many of our wall mount acrylic or glass backboards offer an adjustable arm that allows you to set a custom distance from wall to backboard to align with your existing basketball court markings. Some models also feature an arm that folds back to one side to store the backboard safely to make room for other sports in multi-use facilities.
The basketball goal vs. basketball hoop terminology can also have to do with the quality of the basketball training equipment. If you are shopping online for a cheap portable unit for a toddler or little kid, it will be called a hoop. The same is true for a table basketball game, a cheap pro mini hoop with over the door mounts, flimsy plastic units for pools, or a product like the Spalding acrylic backboard set or Spalding polycarbonate portable basketball goal Walmart sells. Top brands in the sport generally call their equipment basketball goals or systems. At First Team, we take great pride in manufacturing the most well made goals and accessories for your home, school, recreational facility, gymnasium, playground, and even your pool. Read the reviews to learn how different a heavy duty American made basketball system is as compared to lightweight units.
