A basketball court in the backyard may be quite a pricey addition, but when you sum it all up, the benefits it will give you and your family will outweigh the expenses. Here are some of the top reasons you should build a basketball court in your backyard.

Encourage a Healthy Lifestyle

A basketball court at home promotes a healthy lifestyle for the family.

A person who weighs around 150 pounds can lose 215 calories by just playing for 30 minutes. When you play longer, you burn more calories. Do not underestimate simple shootouts, too, because they also burn calories and tone the arm muscles.

If not for basketball, the family can use the space for jogging and other simple exercises.

Increase Home Value

The price of a basketball court depends on a lot of factors. The type of materials, features, and also whether it would be a half or a full-court, affect the price of the project. You are likely to spend around an average of $11,000 for a basic basketball court.

Many families love the sport and would probably consider a house with one. Therefore, it can help the sale of your home when added to you backyard.

Individuals who are serious about improving their skills in the sport would also consider buying a home that already has one installed.

Develop and Improve Skills

Playing basketball daily will improve a lot of skills including shooting, dribbling, and defense. Stamina and endurance are essential elements when playing the sport, and these, too, are improved with regular practice.

But other than these, playing basketball with family or friends will improve self-esteem and social and behavioral skills.

Encourage Quality Time with Family

Playing together improves relationships among family members. And quality time with family is linked to a lot of benefits including improved mental health and self-esteem. Children who get enough quality time with their parents also have lower risks of behavioral problems and tend to perform better in school.

Additionally, quality time family discourages excessive use of gadgets and other unhealthy habits, which also have their own negative effects on all members of the family.

Space for Other Activities

Whether you like it or not, you have extra space for other activities when you have a court installed. Some outdoor celebrations which means avoiding expenses on venue rentals.

Families can also become creative at times and use the space for some quality time like simple campouts.

Low Maintenance

Turning a vacant space in the yard into a basketball court is perhaps a good idea. It is undoubtedly easier to maintain than a lawn that needs mowing every now and then. Perhaps you would need some repairs sometimes, but that is definitely not as often as when you would maintain a yard of greens.

Top 5 Backyard Ice Rink games everyone can enjoy

As we are coming upon the Holiday Season we thought it would be a good time to list our top 5 Fun games that can be played with friends and family on your 360 Backyard Ice Rink!

1. Freeze tag

Once a player is tagged by the designated tagger he or she has to freeze in place. To get unfrozen and back into the game they have to get tagged by someone else in the game who is not the tagger. If all players end up frozen then the tagger wins and a new tagger is chosen. Rotate taggers throughout the game..

2. Skate Chain

Players connect by holding the player in front of them on their waist. Once the Chain is formed the first person in the chain can skate any pathway he or she chooses for 1 minute. Rotate the leader of the chain so everyone gets a chance.

3. Follow the Leader

Designate 1 player as the leader. He or She gets to skate any pathway they want. The rest of the group has to follow him/her. After 1 minute rotate a new leader in so everyone gets the chance to be the leader.

4. Relay Races

Divide the group into 2 or 3 equal teams. A couple of variations for the races:
1. Forwards
2. Forwards Down and Backwards back
3. Skates have to stay on the ice (Good work on your edges)
4. Stickhandling a puck down and back
5. Stickhandle a puck down and make a pass back
6. Broomball 

This is for the group that is above 8 years old and wants some competition! No skates needed. Players play the same rules as Hockey except use an oversize foam ball and brooms as sticks. Best played 4 on 4 with no goalies but different modifications can be made.

For Safety reason players should have a helmet on for all of the games listed above

Ice skating helps with stability, control, and strength for children of all ages. It also improves joint flexibility, builds leg muscles, helps with weight management, and increases endurance. Being active also reduces stress levels which helps improve your mood.  A backyard rink is a great way to decrease screen time and increase exercise time!.

EXTRA ICE TIME HELPS WITH PLAYER DEVELOPMENT

There isn’t a lot of available ice time in local ice rinks for players to work on their individual skills. A backyard ice rink will allow each player time to practice important skills like skating, stickhandling, passing and shooting.

CREATING MEMORIES

Skating and playing games with family and friends in a fun atmosphere will create memories that will last a lifetime. These memories can be created year after year with your own backyard ice rink.

COACHES CORNER TIP

In a past USA Hockey study, a Youth Hockey Player possessed the puck for an average time of 1 minute and 6 seconds per game.  A backyard ice rink is going to allow the player to significantly increase their puck possession time which is key to player development.

How a Backyard Basketball Court Can Improve Your Game During This School Season

Are you prepared for this upcoming basketball season? Our sports court professionals can help improve your dribbling, shooting, and passing skills to impress your coaches and other players this coming season. 

Ability to Practice at Your Convenience 

The luxury of having a personal basketball court in your backyard allows you and your family members to practice whenever. There will be no need to wait for open courts or wait to see “who’s got next”! Whenever you have free time during the day or weekend, you can easily head to your backyard and start shooting around. As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. The more you practice, the more your game will improve, just in time for your basketball season.

Improve Strength and Endurance

Increasing your opportunities to practice playing basketball by having a backyard basketball court can improve your stamina, hand-eye coordination, speed, ball control, overall strength, and more. Players can practice at their own pace and focus on areas they need to improve on. If you struggle with dribbling with your non-dominant hand, you can spend your time improving that area before your season starts. Having this extra practice time can help players identify and improve flaws in their game while also improving their overall endurance and strength. 

Clear Your Head

A very critical part of a successful basketball player is mental strength. Many studies have shown that frequently working out and exercising will improve mental health. Exercising releases endorphins which are hormones that can improve self-esteem, boost your mood, increase concentration skills, enhance your performance, reduce stress, and more. All of these improvements that playing basketball in your backyard will bring can improve your overall game during your basketball season.

How A Backyard Sports Court Will Increase your Property Value

There are many remodeling and renovation projects that homeowners often do to increase the value of their homes, whether this is a new bathroom or a new addition to a house. While these are excellent ways to improve property value, other ways can hold more benefits in the long run. Installing a backyard sports court such as a basketball courttennis court, or multi-sports court will be an addition that you and your family can use for years while it also dramatically increases the value of your home.

Overall Good Investment

A backyard sports court is a luxurious home investment that will continue to rise in profit. Studies show that having a sports court will initially increase a property’s value anywhere between $10,000 to $20,000 and that will just increase over the lifetime of the home. Having a court in your backyard will provide not only a good real estate investment, but also provides a health and wellness initiative for you and your family. Additionally, your family will be able to exercise in the privacy of your own home versus using public courts and other public options.

Low Maintenance:

Another project that many homeowners do to increase their property value is to install a pool. Although pools can be a fun way to spend time with friends and family, they are very hard to keep clean and work properly. Pools require a lot of attention and money to keep them spotless and looking nice. Not to mention, in the winter months, they are not useable. A sports court will also bring the same amount of fun that families can enjoy past the summer months. Sports courts are also very low maintenance and durable throughout the harsh winter. The court material is antimicrobial, making them resilient to mold or dirt build-up.

Landscaping:

Landscaping a yard needs to be kept up regularly to keep a property looking in good shape. However, landscaping can be very time-consuming and extremely expensive. Having a backyard sports court such as a basketball or tennis court can remove some of that landscaping hassle. Our SportScapes experts will work with you to map out the perfect spot in your yard to install your custom court. Additionally, these courts can also be customized and designed the way you want so they will match your yard even better! Stop worrying about spending money on landscape maintenance and install a multi-purpose sports court that will bring long-lasting value and fun to your property and family.

Increase your property value as well as your overall health by having a backyard basketball, tennis, or multi-sports court. Contact one of our SportScapes experts today to have a high-quality and durable court in your own backyard!

How a Backyard Basketball Court Can Improve Health and Wellness Post-Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us a lot of important things. It caused people to start being more conscious of their health and wellness, both physically and mentally. It also taught us to spend time with our loved ones and to appreciate social interactions. An excellent way to achieve all these important things is by installing a basketball, tennis, or any other sports court right at home. Having a sports court installed at home will positively impact physical and mental health and allow for those social interactions. Learn about all the ways that an outdoor basketball court can help improve your health and wellness post-pandemic.

Physical Health

Basketball is a very intense game that requires a lot of focus, strength, and stamina. Having a basketball court right at home can help build lower and upper body strength over time while perfecting hand-eye coordination. Being active will also improve overall health, from improving respiratory to cardiovascular functions.

Mental Health

In addition to physical health benefits, being active also has a significant influence on mental health. Participation in physical activities such as basketball causes a release of a hormone called endorphins. Endorphins boost self-esteem, happiness and reduce stress. It is also shown that endorphins can help depression and anxiety. Take advantage of a backyard basketball court to improve your physical and mental health after the hardships of this pandemic.

Social Interactions

Being restricted with social interactions was very hard on everyone’s social life, especially children who need social interactions to achieve normal growth development and communication skills. With schools being shut down, remote learning, and social distancing, children could not have these regular social interactions with other children. Now that summer is here, and most people are vaccinated, it is more important than ever to increase those social interactions for your kids. Having a basketball court installed in your backyard is a fun and safe way for kids to play their favorite games, hang out with friends and make new ones. Sports courts can also double as tennis courts that will just increase the fun for your children!

The COVID-19 pandemic brought a lot of stress and hardships to families across the world. Restore some of those hardships by having fun and spending time with family and friends. If you are interested in installing a sports court at home, contact 360 SportScapes and start focusing on your health and wellness!

Asphalt vs. Synthetic Basketball Courts

With summer being finally here, people are now able to have fun with their favorite hobbies outside again. Before grabbing your friends and a basketball, it is important to know what the pros and cons are of playing on different court materials. Certain materials can affect players’ health, physical ability and just the fun of the game!

Synthetic:

There are many pros that come with synthetic basketball courts. One of the biggest pros is they are softer and less damaging on the body when players fall. Because they are a softer material than concrete or asphalt, they act as a shock absorber which is crucial for long term knee and joint health. In addition to those benefits, synthetic courts do not attract the heat that asphalt does. Because asphalt is so dark it heats up very quickly in the summer months which can make playing very difficult and uncomfortable which is not something you have to worry about with synthetic courts. With synthetic courts, you also have the freedom to customize the color and size to build your dream basketball court.

Asphalt:

Asphalt basketball courts are very common to see in parks and outdoor community centers. Although asphalt courts are very prominent, they can cause a lot of wear and tear on players’ bodies. Basketball is a very high impact sport which causes a lot of falling throughout the game. Because asphalt is such a hard material, players can often injure themselves while falling. In addition, long-term playing on a hard material like asphalt can cause a condition called “jumper’s knee”. This occurs when there is repetitive jumping which results in stress on the player’s knees causing inflammation and deterioration of the patella tendon.

However, asphalt courts are not all bad. A big pro to asphalt basketball courts is that they are a less expensive option. Another pro is that they are very easy to maintain in all weather conditions which is great with temperamental New England weather. It is very easy to plow an asphalt court and not worry that you are permanently damaging it.

Take into account these pros and cons of different material courts before you start your basketball game. If you are a business or homeowner interested in installing a basketball court, contact 360 Sportscapes today!
