Why are Goalsetter Basketball Hoops
the Best in Basketball?

Goalsetter sets the standard by which all other hoop systems are measured. Ballplayers who are tall or short, young or old, beginner or experienced take advantage of Goalsetter’s ability to adjust the rim height to develop and hone their basketball skills. Young ballplayers experience the joy and success of making a basket, while learning the proper way to shoot from the earliest age. Memories are made – and remembered – on a hoop system that performs like those found in high school, college, or the NBA. 

For all ages

An outdoor, adjustable, regulation-size hoop.
It all began here in 1991.

Goalsetter was the first to envision and build an in ground, height adjustable, regulation-size hoop system for residential and institutional use. (Learn more)

Made in Iowa. Demanded around the world.

Goalsetter can proudly say that 100% of its hoop system is made in the heartland of the USA. Your questions will be answered by customer service personnel, who are only steps away from the system designers, the shop floor and the shop personnel that cut, weld, and assemble the hoop systems. (Learn more)

Competition-grade performance in the driveway.
The last basketball hoop you will purchase.

Every component of a Goalsetter is selected for its ability to reach these goals:

  • To deliver competition-grade performance
  • To withstand the environment and the elements
  • To stand the test of time of aggressive play

From the H-Frame backboard, to the patented internal Compression Height Adjustment mechanism, to the exclusive Hinged Ground-Anchor system, Goalsetter is focused on building a basketball hoop system that will span generations. 

Despite claims to the contrary, there are no basketball hoops built like Goalsetter.
