Side by Side Comparison Pro Dunk Goalrilla Pole Height & Strength Shorter, thicker pole. General consensus is that… Read more »
Amidst the excitement of purchasing a Goalrilla basketball goal, the overhang is something the customer may not think about. Overhang is the distance between the front of the post and the front of the backboard. All Goalrilla goals have an overhang of 2 1/2’ to 4’. Typically, the deeper the overhang, the better, as the post is pushed back and removed from the playing area. The shorter the overhang, the more likely players are to run into the post during play. The heavy duty steel post on a Goalrilla doesn’t care if you’re the next Michael Jordan or a parent showing off… Read more »

Anything you do in life can result in an accidental injury. Walk through the house while texting, for example, and you can flip over the coffee table and break your collar bone. Athletes know better than anyone how injury can affect not only each game, but the championship game and the shot at a scholarship. It’s always important to take care of your body, but here at the Basketball Goal Store, we believe it’s got to be a priority when you play basketball. Being aware of safety even during pick-up games or just practicing free throws under a Goalrilla Goal… Read more »
Blustery fall has arrived with the winds whipping down the streets and along with the errant papers, basketball goals being blown about; at least those portable ones that are really meant to be taken down and sent back to the garage every day! In fact, my neighbors have one that they purchased for their three boys and, just like most all others, it stays outside all the time. They found that it moved around a great deal in play and as the boys got bigger – and rougher – they got stakes and bungee cords to secure it to the ground.… Read more »
All most kids want to do is get out and take some shots at the basketball goal – make some hoops, run and beat their friends in a friendly game. But here come the adults with their ideas about “warming up” and stretching before engaging in any sports activity. Adults sigh, kids groan. They just want to play – and – in the end is that ok? Here at the Basketball Goal Store, we make available the best in in-ground basketball goals – the Goalrilla Basketball Goals – we don’t advise on the physiology of the game. But I can’t resist… Read more »
Kids will be kids, but boy can it be aggravating sometimes! They play practical jokes on each other. (Why do they call them practical? The jokes usually aren’t.) Case in point: I remember when a friend had her Volkswagen Beetle picked up and wedged sideways into a spot where there was no way she could drive it out. It was great fun for the jokers, but not so much for the jokee. Likewise when at my first job (fast food); the bathroom key was attached to a great big piece of 2 x 4 lumber – the idea being no… Read more »
One of the questions we get a lot here at the Basketball Goal Store is about the adjustability feature on the Goalrilla Basketball Goals we offer. People ask why the Goalrilla Goal adjusts specifically from 7.5 to 10-feet. There are several products out there on the market that adjust downward to 6-feet – and even a few more that go to 5-feet. Safety is always first with Goalrilla Basketball Goals ASTM standards for adjustable basketball systems prohibit adjustments lower than 7.5-feet for customer safety. Serious injury to the mouth and teeth can happen if teeth or braces get caught in… Read more »
