When Ken Cochran had the idea for a basketball shooting game, he knew he would need help constructing it. He reached out to local suppliers in his hometown of Salina, Kansas to craft its parts.

Pop-A-Shot Premium games continue to be made almost entirely of American-made parts, many from these same local suppliers. In many cases, their businesses have grown and evolved, yet they continue to supply Pop-A-Shot with the same quality components.


For almost a quarter of a century, Ben Treece has designed and built Pop-A-Shot’ steel frames. Ben’s team of craftsmen spend almost a week putting together every Premier game frame by hand in their Salina, KS, workshop.


CRESTWOOD INC.: Premium Backboards

ACE NET CO.: Premium Nets
It would be less expensive to buy machine-made nets from overseas. But we prefer the custom-made, hand-tied nets that Kathy makes for us. For more than 20 years, Kathy and her team have made nets to Pop-A-Shot’s exact specifications in their Twin Rivers, WI base.
