DREAM BIG. PLAY HARD.
JustInTymeSports has been making mini basketball hoops since 1996. We started with only one model - our Mini Pro 1. That hoop was featured on the Today Show in 2000 for a game with Hoda Kotbe and Kathie Lee Gifford.
In the 25 years that followed we have continued to learn from our customers and develop more hoops in different sizes and with more features. Our hoops are known for being the strongest and most realistic mini basketball hoops on the market - this is a direct result of our Dream Big. Play Hard. philosophy.
Are you looking for a toy or a basketball hoop?
There are plenty of toy hoops on the market. The novelty hoops are mostly made in China and made of plastic and cardboard. There are some that look authentic, but they are made with thin materials and lightweight springs (if they have a spring). If you are looking for a toy, there is no need to keep reading - we do not have what you are looking for.
All of our mini basketball hoops are Made in the USA. Our hoops have welded steel frames, 1/4" thick polycarbonate backboards, and break-away rims with industrial urethane die springs. Some of these features are not even available on driveway hoops. Many of our customers are still playing on their hoops from 10, 15, and 20 years ago.
Are you looking for a door mounted hoop or a wall mounted hoop?
If you are looking for a door mounted hoop, there is no need to keep reading - we no longer offer door mounted hoops. Sometimes, a door mount is your only option. If that is what you need, try to find one that fits your budget. It is difficult to build in the needed strength so many door mounted hoops end up breaking. If you make the hoop assembly strong enough, guess what - the door breaks.
All of our hoops are wall mounted. Our Mini Pro 1.0 and Mini Pro 2.0 still use our original Single-Stud mounting system. That means you only need to find a single stud in the wall to mount your hoop. Our Mini Pro Dura Goal adds our Competition Mount to the Mini Pro 2.0 - this mount attaches to two studs and is significantly stronger. The Mini Pro Xtreme has two vertical frame supports and a 12" rim in addition to the Competition Mount. The Mini Pro Ultimate is our flagship mini basketball hoop. This model is the largest and strongest in our lineup.

Wall Mounted Model Lineup
The image below shows the rim, backboard size, and other features of our wall mounted models.
The old adage of, "Measure twice, cut once" applies here. Please make sure to measure the playing area you have, including ceiling height before your purchase. The larger the play area the larger size hoop you can use. If the ceiling height is lower than 8 feet we typically don't recommend going larger than the Mini Pro Dura Goal unless you plan to mount the hoop very low as you need at least 18 inches of distance between the rim and the ceiling.
Type of Play
The type of play and size of players are a major key in your hoop-buying decision. Are you looking most at shooting or is dunking important? How big are the kids (or adults reliving their glory days!) who will be playing on the hoop most often?
Last, but not least, budget is obviously important. If everyone had the space and budget for it, we would recommend the Mini Pro Ultimate 9 times out of 10 simply because we have seen how aggressive kids will play on the hoops, and kids certainly don't get smaller. That being said, you will find all of our hoops to be incredibly durable, meaning there is a fit for every budget when shopping at JustInTymeSports.
