under 12's size 5 ball, why not an 8 foot ring too?
my 9 year old son whom has been wanting to play basketball for a long time has finally gotten a chance to do so, he plays at school with mates but has never played a formal game and is finally in a team but is under 12's due to him turning 10 next May,
i know they have recently changed the ball size to 5 for under 12's (In Country VIC) i am curious as to why they havent lowered the rings too?
Considering that the reasons for changing the ball size was to encourage more retention/enjoyment for the players...
i am a little bit worried about his overall enjoyment considering he will be a lot smaller than other under 12 kids and the rim being a lot higher than what he has so far been used to
any ideas on if they will change the ring height?
should i just 'throw him in the deep end' so to speak and adjust the ring at home so he can get used to it?
