Build your own basketball court with help from DICK's Sporting Goods. DICK'S carries a wide variety of basketball hoops and rims from a number of brands, including Lifetime, Goalrilla, Goaliath, Huffy Sports, and Spalding. Choose from a selection of mountable, in-ground, or portable basketball hoops that fit your needs no matter where you plan to set up court. DICK'S Sporting Goods' selection of basketball goals is constructed with solid, durable materials. Backboards made of acrylic, polycarbonate, and tempered glass and basketball rims made of durable steel are just some of the features you'll find in the collection of basketball hoops.
When selecting the basketball hoop for your home or practice location, you need to consider permanence, adjustability, and ease of installation.
If you want a permanent basketball system but not an in-ground solution, a combination system may be the right hoop for you. Combination basketball goals include a backboard, rim, and mounting kit that securely attach the system to a garage or wall.
Are you looking to start shooting hoops immediately? You need a system that is easy to install and easy to move. Look for portable basketball hoops; they are easily adjusted and have wheels to move as desired. For full portability, remember to look for an adjustable system that allows you to change the backboard height for moving in or out of smaller spaces.
For a basketball hoop that will stay in place year-round and survive the elements, choose an in-ground basketball hoop. Secured in the ground with cement, in-ground basketball systems are stable and sturdy for competitive outdoor games throughout the seasons.
Tips and Expert Advice
There are many different types of basketball hoops; ultimately it comes down to your needs and desires for an at-home system.
The major advantage of portable basketball goals is that they can easily be moved from place to place, while combination and in-ground basketball systems are stationary. Portable basketball hoops do have a base that can be filled with sand or water for stability, but are still vulnerable to falling over. The risk of the portable hoop falling over is increased when players are dunking or hanging from the rim.
Conversely, with in-ground basketball systems, this risk is greatly minimized. In-ground basketball hoops or combination basketball hoops are also constructed with sturdy materials that protect the systems as they remain outside throughout the seasons. If dunking and hanging on the rim are important to your at-home practice, look for breakaway rims that bend and snap back into place to prevent wrist injury or a shattered backboard.
