Is this a good system for a younger child?
Yes. This is an excellent beginner level basketball hoop. The adjustability of this backboard system allows the rim height to be set as low as 7.5-feet, allowing even young children to reach the rim and start learning to shoot.
Should I use sand or water to fill the base of this portable basketball hoop?
Either option is fine. When filling the base with sand, the weight of the base is typically about 1.5 times the weight as when the base is filled with water (depends on the density of the sand you use). A base filled with sand will typically provide greater stability, but will also be more difficult to move around.
