  • A. Yes, it comes with a spike base that goes all the way into the ground so you can bump into d-man and keep the moves very close to him. It is great for teaching good man to man skills. the indoor base is small and round (about shoulder width) you fill it with water,sand or in my case kitty litter cause it's winter here. works great.

I bought this for my 6th grade daughter because of her small stature she lacks arch when she shoots the basketball. It has worked so well for her shooting and her confidence that now the whole team is using it. They drive around d-man, practice moves and use it for shooting. It breaks apart in 5 minutes and stores nicely in my car till the next practice. this is great for so many things, I'm going to use it for the soccer team too!

very easy to setup, we are talking mins for more than 1. work well but with moderate wind and bases filled with water, often find them blown over. They do add the extra element of having to shoot with something infront of you and was noticeable the first time the kids shot at the basket with the D-Man infront of them. Adjustable height very easy to use for 9 and 13 year old. Happy with investment overall.

Using this Product with a Youth Basketball League.

Using this Product with a Youth Basketball League. It helps the young kids shoot with more arc. It helps them practice High Post & Low Post Moves. They can simulate a defender and practice making good passes around D-man. Purchased three and they serve as an extra players in practices when real players are missing. We filled the bases with sand and used some zip ties for a more secure D-man on the pole. We also made them mobile by placing some shop wheels on the bases. Very pleased with the product and the younger players enjoy using them.
