When you need a basic, yet effective outdoor basketball system, these Classic Systems are unsurpassed. The straightforward design lets players focus on building skills while outside. These in-ground systems feature a 3' setback that maximizes the space on short courts or smaller play areas. The design is best for light-institutional use and perfect for developing skills in younger players.
Choose the backboard design that suits your needs. Aluminum is tough, rustproof, and lightweight. 12-gauge steel provides more durability and better playability compared to aluminum.

Available with a fan-shaped backboard with or without a target in 2 options:

With Target, 145 lb system
Steel, 54"W x 35"H
No Target, 185 lb system

3½" Post: Perfect for light-institutional use. 3' setback.
4½" Post: More durable for continuous institutional use. 4' setback.
The setback (or rununder) is the distance from the post to the backboard, usually ranging from 3' to 4'. Longer setbacks increase player safety by reducing the risk of running into the post, but they also require more space for installation; shorter setbacks are best suited for smaller courts.
Rim & Board.
Single rims are best for light institutional use with no player-rim contact. Double rims are stronger and more durable for heavy use and dunking. Backboards are available in durable steel; lightweight and rustproof aluminum; or the glass-like feel of clear, unbreakable polycarbonate. Rectangular backboards offer the look and size of official indoor boards, while fan-shaped backboards are more compact for side or smaller courts.
