Clearance Above A Basketball Goal

How much clearance is needed above a basketball goal?
For an indoor gym?
I’m thinking under my deck, it is 20 feet high

I think that would be high enough.
You can check NCAA regulations if you are concerned.
How do I do that?
You can view rules and regulation on their website at
Ok great thanks!
Page 15. They require 25 feet above the playing surface.
So, I think at 20 feet you will be pretty good.
Ok this would be for my 11 yr old son so I will probably have the height a little lower.
Thanks for your help.
