Add A Basketball Goal to Your Backyard Playset in New Jersey

Article was published on: 04/26/21

Basketball is a great way to get your child outside for some quality outdoor play. It involves both running and jumping, making it a whole body workout. It also can teach your child hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills through dribbling, shooting, and passing. If your child is getting bored of their wooden swing set, a Goalsetter basketball goal is the perfect addition to spice up your backyard playset in New Jersey.

There are two main varieties of Goalsetter’s basketball goals: the adjustable in-ground model and the wall mounted model. As the name implies, the in-ground model is built into the ground to ensure the ultimate stability. This is the perfect option if you have a large driveway with extra space or is a great option for a school playground, gym, or city park.

The other option, the wall mounted model, can be mounted above a garage door if you have a particularly tight driveway. If you do not have a garage, simply mount the model on the side of your house. Both models have the same backboard specs, meaning that the main difference between picking either option is just your own personal preference and whether you want something freestanding or not.

Many of Goalsetter’s wall mounted basketball goals are height adjustable, too. They either utilize a compression system or an awning crank. Be careful with the wall mounted models that the backboard is not too close to any windows as these may face damage depending on your child’s basketball skill level. All of the in-ground models are adjustable as well and the hoop can be raised or lowered to heights ranging from 6 to 10 feet high.

If you’re worried about the basketball goal looking like an eyesore, Goalsetter also offers colorful backboard and pole padding. This offers protection and ties together anything of color in the surrounding areas of your backyard, play area, and driveway.

If you decide to purchase a Goalsetter basketball goal to complete your backyard playset in New Jersey, it is important to maintain it. It is important to keep it clean and free of any dirt on the backboard and pole. Try to stay away from harsh cleaners such as bleach and opt for a simple solution of white vinegar and water.

If you’re looking to get the longest life out of your basketball goal, it is also important to check on its warranty. Many Goalsetter products offer a limited lifetime warranty, guaranteeing ultimate satisfaction with your basketball goal. According to Goalsetter, their high quality basketball goals are the #1 USA-made goals.
