JustinTymeSports has been manufacturing high quality mini basketball hoops since 1996. The inspiration for this business came from our oldest son, Justin, when he was just 9 years old. He loves sports and he went through a bunch of the cheap plastic hoops that were available at the time. After another one of his backboards broke, he noticed a piece of plexi-glass that I had in the basement. He asked if I would mount his plastic rim to the plexi-glass. He had a group of friends spend the night and they played on that hoop for hours. His friends liked it so much that we began talking about making more...that is how JustinTymeSports was born.
When we set out to design our own hoop we had three criteria:
In 2004 we launched our website and have used a direct-sales approach to ship thousands of our hoops to all 50 states and over 10 different countries. We also have a presence on ebay , at http://stores.ebay.com/JustinTymeSports, and have established a PowerSeller status which requires a minimum monthly sales volume and a 98% positive feedback rating (we currently have a 100% positive feedback rating). We have also worked with Gus Macker and the Grand Rapids Hoops to provide custom mini basketball hoops for their organizations.
In 2005 we introduced a new model - the Mini-Pro II. Our Mini-Pro II Basketball Hoop is a very rugged mini hoop designed with many features found only on full-size basketball hoops. Our innovative JustFlexTM rim mount provides a reliable break-away rim feature that is not found on any other mini basketball hoop - there are no springs or pinch-points for small hands. Our SingleStudTM mounting system allows you to mount the Mini-Pro II on a single stud of a wall where other sets have non-uniform spacing that makes it difficult to mount the hoop without damaging the wall.
In 2006 we introduced another new model - the Mini-Pro I HD. This hoop adds a steel frame behind the backboard of the Mini-Pro I and a sleek stainless steel frame around the front of the backboard. The Mini-Pro I HD also includes our JustFlexTM rim mount feature and our SingleStudTM mounting system.
In 2007 we introduced our newest model - the Mini-Xtreme. The Xtreme series takes it up a notch with a full 12" rim made of 1/2" steel. If you like using a larger size ball, this hoop is a great choice.
