How to Find Your Perfect Soccer Goal and Net Combo
Soccer has been growing in popularity throughout the U.S. only in the last ten years or so, while the rest of the world has seen the appeal of this universal sport for quite some time. While the sport may seem as simple as kicking a ball into a goal, there is a great deal of effort and skill that goes into becoming an excellent soccer player. Finding just the right size goal and net combo for your age and skill level will allow you to create the perfect backyard setup for practice, or even create a world-class training field for your team.
Practice Goals for Kids
If you have a child or children who are just getting started in the world of soccer, a small Fast-N-Easy goal in your choice of sizes provides you with a quick setup and tear-down with its own carrying case. Instant, portable goals such as the Instant Goal or a Half-Moon Pop-Up from Fold-A-Goal are excellent for either backyards or the practice field, and the smaller sizes such as 4' x 6' are not too overwhelming for smaller children. They're also not large enough or sturdy enough to climb on -- a definite bonus when you want to keep little ones safe!
Practice Goals for Youth
While youth could certainly use the folding goal sets mentioned above, they are likely to need something a little bit sturdier that will hold up to harder hits and more strenuous kicks, yet still be reasonably-priced. The Practice Soccer Goal is the perfect option for backyards, elementary schools or even league practice, and the 1-1/4" square aluminum is durable and easy to transport and assemble. A five-year guarantee assures that even though the price point is affordable, you'll receive years of service from your soccer goal.
Practice Goals for Teens and Adults
When you're getting serious about soccer, you need to have a regulation-sized goal available for your practice -- even if it's just in your back yard! The Standard Soccer Goal comes in a variety of sizes and even comes in a new size of 7' x 18' that is specifically for beach soccer. Eight goal anchors provide a stable base for your aggressive blocking moves, and the lightweight aluminum used in manufacturing allows this goal to maintain portability.
Whether you have a tiny tot just getting started in soccer or are doing some serious pre-game prep, Fold-A-Goal has you covered!
