High School, Jr. High, & Youth Basketball Court Size

A court this size isn't appropriate for younger players,  so regulations for youth, middle school, and high school leagues include courts that are shorter and narrower. Other modifications include distance of the 3-pt arc, and for the youngest players, the free throw line distance and rim height may be shortened as well.

Notes: The 3-pt line for the NBA measures 22 feet from the sides and 23.75 feet from the top.

Under old FIBA rules, the key is a trapezoid shape that measures 11.81 feet wide at the free throw line and 19.69 feet at the baseline.
