Who is this for?
I think this basketball system is ideal for up to around the ages of 10 or eleven, the manufacturer suggested age group is 4 to 7, but depending on the height of your child up to 11 years of age. After that it might become too short and not operate quite as well. Even though I say this, if you have young kids this system can be a great thing to help your kids get outside and play and get some exercise.
- The base is filled with sand or water and can be rolled to where you want to play. Its 10 gallons so it’s sturdy.
- It’s made from water-resistant polyethylene plastic and powder coated Steel, with a hard Backboard and Steel Telescoping Pole which is supposed to offer great resistance against rust, wear and tear.
- The Telescoping Pole doesn’t require any tools to adjust the height
- The Lifetime Youth Portable Basketball system is height adjustable from 5.5 to 7.5 feet. Increments can be done in 6 inches, so it can work for kids of all ages.
- It comes with rim made of 0.5 inch steel that is 15 inch in size, and is capable of being folded up.
- The net is a 50 gram which withstands it all and
- It has a Limited 5 year manufacturer’s warranty
I think my favorite thing about this basketball system is that’s it pretty portable, with the wheels it makes it pretty transportable.
When we received the system we were surprised at how quickly it came together, we had it together in less than an hour between my husband and I. I was impressed with how sturdy and the quality of the product. We filled our Lifetime Youth Portable Basketball System with water because we didn’t have 10 gallons of sand and it works just fine. I recommend using water because it’s also easy to dispose of if you are moving and need to pack the Youth Portable Basketball System up to take with you when you move across town or across the country, this system is sturdy and rugged yet saves you on the hassle of a permanent installation as well as the cost.
One thing though, depending on the size of your kids I wouldn’t recommend encouraging your kid’s to dunk when they are playing basketball with this hoop as it could tip over and while the height options are great depending on how quickly our child grows you could out grow this system.
Why you should buy it?
The Lifetime Youth Portable Basketball System just might be what you are looking for. This gives your kids the chance to play basketball at your house rather than at the crowded and unsupervised basketball court in the neighbourhood.
I would definitely recommend the Lifetime Youth Portable Basketball System for anybody who has kids that enthusiastic about basketball and they are looking for a way to play outside. The Youth Portable Basketball System is easy to assemble, has good quality materials and is easily transportable because of the wheels.
