For accuracy training, coaches and parents prefer these popup nets. Lightweight, so even kids can carry them. You can put them side-by-side to increase the goal area if you want. Many parents bought these for their kids to play in the yard, but they like that they can be portable.

An Overview On Soccer Goals

Soccer is a highly beneficial activity, strengthening your leg muscles and packing in long bouts of aerobic activity. In addition to the many health benefits, it also ignites your competitive spirit and can serve as a great bonding activity for family and friends.

But soccer isn’t just for fun. If you play on a team, you likely find yourself striving to win. That means you need to pack in some solo practice in between team practice and matches and doing that can be challenging. A soccer field is typically 2 acres in size, but you can grab enough room to practice if you have a flat area in your back yard.

Kicking the ball around is just one part of practice, though. If you want to rehearse goal kicks or play a game with others, you’ll need a soccer goal. You don’t even have to commit to the full-size goal you use during games to practice kicks. You can find one small enough to get the practice you need without taking up significant space in your yard.

One thing to consider before you buy a soccer goal is whether you want it to be portable or not. Some fold up for easy storage between use, and still others are built to be easily taken on the go. You could even store it in your vehicle to be ready to start up a soccer game wherever you are. Often this comes at a sacrifice to sturdiness and size, though, so consider whether you’re willing to go with a smaller model in order to be able to easily store and transport your goal.

If you opt for one that’s built to install permanently, you’ll need to determine whether it’s weatherproof. The supporting poles and net will all need to be able to withstand day after day of sunlight, rain and more extreme weather like storms, hail and ice. You should also make sure the anchors will be strong enough to hold it in place when the wind kicks up.

DWYM Fun Fact

Soccer is the most popular sport in the world, although it goes by the name “football” in many countries outside the U.S. The game itself can be traced all the way back to the third century B.C. when residents of China played a game that involved kicking a ball. Called Cuju, the game later spread to Japan. But the Roman culture brought football to Britain, even though experts aren’t sure how much of the original game they incorporated into the version they started up. It’s widely believed that modern-day soccer/football got its start in the 12th century when England began to see the game springing up across the country. The game went through multiple variations over the years until it finally settled into the version played today.

The Soccer Goal Buying Guide

  • Before you buy, look at the size of the goal. Some are available in multiple sizes, allowing you to get the model you want in the exact size you need.
  • If you choose a portable goal, check to see if it comes with a carrying case. Otherwise, you may need to purchase one separately.
  • The best thing about a more portable goal is that you can easily store it, but you’ll need to ensure you have a good place to keep it between uses. Also consider how much time and effort will be involved in setting it up. If it’s too much trouble, you may find you end up leaving it in place anyway, at which point you’ll need to make sure it’s weatherproof.
  • Your soccer goal will need to be able to absorb shock well. Check the durability of not only the supporting poles but the net attached to them.
  • Your goal will anchor to the ground using stakes. Goals typically come with either metal or plastic stakes. Plastic can be tougher to drive into the ground, but it’s lighter weight, making it easier to transport and store.
  • If you think you might practice at night, reflective fabric on the goal can come in handy.
  • Those who have space for it can set soccer goals up indoors. You’ll need a smaller model for this, and one that’s built to be used indoors.
  • Look not only at the build of the net but how it attaches to the poles. It will need to be strong enough to endure being hit with repeated significant force.
  • If you want the flexibility to play on a variety of ground types, look for a goal with that flexibility. Some allow you to play on grass, turf and sand.
