And yes, you do have to assemble it. I didn't think about that when I ordered it. When it was delivered, I was not excited about putting it together as I have put together basketball goals and other gifts and there is definitely time involved that I wasn't anticipating. The directions are not super clear, but looking at the pictures is extremely helpful. Also, if you look at the package of nut and bolts, etc. you may want to be really careful tearing the back away because the names of the items your need are on the paper, once torn, makes it difficult to see.However, it all came together pretty easily. As a busy mom, I had about an hour and a half to devote to this birthday present and got it done just in time. Also, remember that you will have to put the bag on the hook and you will certainly need help with that since it is heavier than you think. My son is loving the bundle we ordered. You can see my note about what weight of bag to get in the reviews under 'HappyMom'. enjoy!
