Overhang is important to your game: The more, the better. True regulation overhang is 4 feet. Overhang can create major problems if a goal adjusts to lower than 7.5 feet. At that height, it will be encroaching onto the driveway, putting it at risk of being hit by vehicles backing up, causing expensive damage. For more information on overhangs, check out this blog article.
Both the Medium Weight and Heavy Weight rim have one spring.
The spring is stronger in the Heavy Weight rim and the overall “box” size of the rim is larger – thus the different mounting patterns.
The reinforcements on the CV models are redesigned to go to the side of the glass, which gives it similar stability to the GS models, and allows it to have the clear view backboard.
Yes! Goalrilla systems offer you a convenient way to keep your goal at a certain height. The handle to crank the goal can be removed by taking out a pin, and stored for safe keeping. Many parents like to crank their goals up to a regulation height of 10 feet for their kids, remove the crank handle, and get their children more used to the height that they will be playing on in school.
Unfortunately, you are unable to upgrade the backboards to larger sizes. The steel for each goal that extends from the pole, attaches to each backboard differently.
Absolutely! In fact, this semi-portability is one of the greatest features of a Goalrilla goal. Your goal will be installed on an independent anchor system. If you move, it’s as simple as unbolting 4 bolts from the bottom of the goal, moving the goal to the new home, and purchasing and installing a new anchoring system at the new home. If you’d like more information on the Goalrilla anchoring system or to purchase one, please contact us!
All Goalrillas come with a lifetime warranty. For more details, visit the manufacturer’s website.
The overhang of a Goalrilla goal ranges from 2.5′ to 4′ depending on the model and the height setting selected. The overhang for each goal can be found their respective product pages.
Goalrilla is The Toughest Basketball System on the Planet™ and carries a limited lifetime warranty. Goalrilla goals are designed to take your best slam, jam or dunk, and other activities common to the game of basketball. Hanging on the rim is unsafe and not recommended. Be sure to understand the guidelines for proper use and keep your warranty in effect. Read the complete warranty here.
All Goalrilla systems are adjustable from 7.5 to 10 feet, allowing the system to be enjoyed by players of virtually all ages. The all-steel height-adjusting actuator includes a scale that shows the height that is achieved by turning the handle.
7.5′ is a safety standard that Goalrilla follows to prevent injuries and protect children’s heads and teeth from hitting the bottom of the backboard or getting hung up on the net. At one time, Goalrilla did allow their goals to lower below the 7.5′ mark, and the amount of injuries were substantial, so they decided to keep it above 7.5′. This also conforms with standards on residential basketball goals that are mandated by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). Those standards can be found under the Abstract section here.
Since we have so much buying power, we are able to buy out various overstocks and closeout models. Overstock goals are not defective or seconds. Many of these models offer a substantial savings to our end customers. Overstock goals are usually limited supply and go quickly. They are all new (in the box) systems that carry the same warranty as non-overstock goals. Please check out our current overstocks.
Our lowest price point Goalirlla goal is the GS54, (a BasketballGoalStore.com exclusive), which retails for $949.95. Most goals you see in this price range are cheaper made two piece poles that won’t provide the quality play of a Goalrilla goal and usually need to be replaced within a few years. All Goalrilla goals carry a lifetime warranty and are intended to be the last goal you will ever need to purchase.
Like Goalrilla, Goaliath is a popular residential basketball brand, and they offer a solid lineup of goals. There are, however, several key differences comparable Goaliath and Goalrilla models. Check out the side by side comparison of the Goaliath GB54 and the Goalrilla GS54.
Unlike most internet stores, we have a 30,000 sq. ft. physical showroom located in Noblesville, Indiana. We have accreditations from the Better Business Bureau and we are a proud WBE (Woman’s Business Enterprise). We have been in business for over 25 years. Our crews have installed and assembled thousands of Goalrilla goals. In fact, we were the original inventors and manufacturers of the Goalrilla goal! (Pretty cool, huh?)
Gauge refers to the thickness of steel. The lower the gauge number correlates to thicker steel. Example: 7 gauge is thicker than 11 gauge.
For high school, college, and professional basketball, the regulation height is 10 feet to the top side of the basketball rim.

Yes! We do offer discount pricing if you purchase more than one goal. Please call in for specific volume discounts!
Due to the weight of the goal, we are unable to send UPS, it must be shipped using a freight company. Unfortunately, this does limit us to one shipping time for all customers.
Once we receive your order, we usually ship the next business day. We are based out of Indiana, so typically the closer you are to us, the faster you will get your goal. Most shipments arrive in 7-10 business days, excluding Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.
Once you place your order, and we have shipped out your goal, you will receive a tracking number via email from our shipping company. Once the goal arrives at your nearest shipping hub, our shipping company will call you to organize a delivery to your home. You WILL need to be there to unload the product. Shipping will be a curbside delivery. You will be expected to inspect and sign for the shipment. Please inspect the boxes and ensure they are all in good condition. If you are thinking about refusing any shipment, please call us first. Most goal shipments will come in 3 separate boxes. Please also note that it is the customer’s responsibility to dispose of the pallet on which the goal is shipped.
We often have questions about what box a certain item may be in. Here is a quick overview of where these frequently asked for items are.
CV Models Only
The universal pole pad is in the backboard box. It is used as part of the packaging. The backboard pole pad is located in the yoke arm box.
Assembly instructions and the height indicator are taped to the anchor system box which is located in the post box. Hardware is located on a vacuum sealed card glued inside the top of the box.
A complimentary BasketballGoalStore.com sticker and survey card are also enclosed on the outside of the yoke box
If the customer purchases a goal with any padding other than a CV model, it will be in a separate box along with the shipment. This applies to padding as well as hoop lights, yard guards, and ball return systems.
You will need approximately 18″-24″ of clearance behind the goal to be able to turn the handle and adjust the height of the backboard.
If you live in Indiana, ask your associate for installation details. If you live outside of Indiana we can recommend a Goalrilla installer in your area. Ask your associate for details. If you elect to install the goal yourself, consult the instructions provided or watch our quick 5 minute installation video.
For safety purposes, we recommend you have at least three capable persons to assist you.
The recommended hole size is 16 inches in diameter and 48 inches deep. You will need eight 80-lb bags of concrete for the installation.
IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTION:
Before you dig, call your local utilities to rule out the presence of buried cables including power, water, gas and phone lines. Failure to do so could result in serious or fatal injury.
For best results with less vibration, your Goalrilla anchor system should be independent of your court. If pouring concrete for both at the same time, add an expansion joint in between.
The anchor system is set in concrete on Day 1 and requires at least 72 hours to cure. We recommend erecting your system on Day 5 to ensure the superior rock-solid performance for which Goalrilla is famous.
Yes. The nuts beneath the pole let you level the system once it is installed. If the concrete is not perfectly level, you can level the pole by adjusting these four nuts. Simply place a level on the sides of the pole to check it for levelness. You can loosen the top nuts slightly and adjust the bottom nuts to move the system up or down on the corner which needs leveling. When the system is level, simply tighten all nuts against the pole system.
No maintenance is required to keep the actuator functioning properly.
Yes we do! We are able to acquire many parts for your Goalrilla system. Some older models may be subject to manufacturer availability.
There are only three things to keep in mind with regard to maintenance:
Accessories and parts will be shipped via UPS or FedEx Ground. Transit time is 3-5 business days. Accessories that are purchased with a basketball goal will be packaged with the goal and delivered via freight shipping.
