How high is an elementary school basketball hoop?

== == == == In most elementary schools, the gyms have hoops as of 10 ft., the regulation height of a basketball hoop for the NBA. Outside on the blacktop, the hoops usually range from about 9ft. to the hoops that are too high at 11ft. Some of the hoops are put in awkwardly and end up being too tall or too short. Generally in the school buildings the gyms have the hoops at 10 feet high which is the standard height of high school, college, and the NBA. However out on the playgrounds, you will see them at 8 or 9 feet high. Many times kids in 1st and 2nd grade will play games on a lower 8 foot hoop.

He also won the Slam Dunk title over his 6'8" teammate, Dominique Wilkins. Currently Nate Robinson is the shortest player in the NBA at 5'9". He has won three Slam Dunk titles including an astounding victory over the 6'11" center Dwight Howard. So to answer your question, no your never too short to play basketball, you may have to work harder, but your never too short.
