A ground sleeve is useful for installation of the basketball system if you think that you will need to remove the system at some point; examples: you are going to move soon, and you want to take the system with you, or you want to take the system down for part of the year.

A great training aid for baskteball shooting practice when shooting for the same position in front of the system is a basketball hoop chute.

What is the difference between the 1008 and the Lifetime inground basketball hoop 90020?

The 90020 and 1008 have 3 differences. 1, the 90020 backboard is 48-inches wide; the 1008 has a 44-inch backboard. 2, the 90020 has a grip handle height adjuster reffered to as the Action Grip; the 1008 uses the Quick Adjust, which operates using a broom stick. And 3, the 90020 rim uses a double-spring compression rim; the 1008 uses a classic static rim.

Is this basketball system usable by my [young] child?

Yes. The 1008 Lifetime basketball hoop is ideal for younger players that are just getting learning the game. The low price, but quality features - the large 3.5-inch round pole and adjustable backboard height - are great for younger, developing players.

5 out of 5 stars Great In-Ground System
by surfergirl from Blairsville, GA on 2/19/2012
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
Product came very fast, ordered it on Sunday and arrived by Friday. The picture does not give it justice, it looks very sharp, as several neighbors have commented to me about. The pole assembly is very sturdy, which as a big concern of mine having owned a lesser quality system.The mechanism which raise and lowers it is simple and fast to use with a broom stick. Why pay more for a fancy crank model. Fortunately, the rest of the structure is very sound and offsets that. I priced a lot of systems and for the money this unit is a definite winner!

5 out of 5 stars Inground Basketball system
by Lynn from Lincoln, Nebraska on 5/20/2011
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
Purchased system at a great sales price. I was short a couple of items when I received the basketball system but have the parts on the way to me as I write this review. Very nice people to work with in Utah and am sure my grandchildren will enjoy playing basketball as soon as I get it up. I recommend purchasing the ground sleeve for easy removal at a time later if necessary. The quality of the system is excellent and would recommend this to all who desire making their grandchildren happy when they with their Grandpa.

Recommends it to Friends: Yes
This goal is a great value and a great item. It is perfect for any family. We have never had any issues with their products. This is our 2nd one as the first one we had to leave behind at our old house. So we immediately purchased a new one for the new house. Competitive Edge Products has great customer service and they are very quick to ship items out. I recommend their products to anyone!

3 out of 5 stars Install
by dick from pittsburgh pa on 4/14/2014
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
The hoop itself is great. However I do have a concern that the person who wrote the instructions was severely intoxicated or perhaps extremely high. I used to build houses for a living, and it was easier to build a house than to follow these instructions. Honestly the person who wrote them must have been extremely high. best of luck if you plan on assembling it.

2 out of 5 stars disappointed
by Mart from St. Louis MO on 1/10/2013
Recommends it to Friends: No
Our Lifetime inground goal is 7 years old and now must be removed because of a long split at the base and rust on both the pole and the metal parts of the backboard. It has been used minimally. The 5-year warranty must be the clue that these goals do not have a long life. It will be expensive to have it safely removed. Next time we will get a portable goal.

4 out of 5 stars Kids love it
by RobPhi from Garden City, KS on 8/6/2012
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
Nice goal and you cant beat the price. Dug the hole and put the pole in the ground one evening. Let it setup and put the rest together the next night. The kids were shooting baskets that evening. Assembly instructions let a little to be desired. The pictures were not clear enough. I had to assemble and reassemble the adjustment bars 4 times before I finally got everything in the right hole. Overall it wasnt fairly simple.
