With 500,000 pairs of full size official regulation, portable, movable, collapsible or tip resistant soccer goals in the United States Soccer goal safety is critical as each portable soccer goal poses the risk of accidentally tipping over and causing thousands of injuries and dozens of deaths. And the stark reality is that coaches, administrators, and game officials are personally responsible for the safe use of these soccer goals during competition and the safe movement and storage of these goals when not in use. When taken seriously, this is a daunting task since portable soccer goals that are 8’ high and 24’ wide and weigh hundreds of pounds are inherently unsafe and impossible to safely move.
Although for years the US Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued many soccer goal safety suggestions, unfortunately, most of their recommendations are either ineffective or ignored by the end users responsible for the safety and stability of the soccer goals on the fields and playgrounds. And, despite all these efforts, the reality is that lightweight goals will continue to blow over in the wind; players will hang from the crossbars; kids will climb up on the nets; and the unsupervised use of soccer goals will continue to create dangerous problems for the industry.
The pioneers of lightweight carbon fiber volleyball systems, have revolutionized the soccer goal industry with the introduction of a patent pending, simple but highly effective design. Safe Soccer Goals uses sand-filled polyethylene rear rollers that provide the proper ballast that virtually eliminates the possibility of dangerous accidental tip-overs.
In addition to the patented rear rollers, SafeSoccer goals include an outstanding aluminum design with torque tested reinforced corner pieces that frequently breakdown on other goals. The aluminum front uprights and crossbar have a heavy duty, textured white powder coated finish, 3/4″ radii on all corners and Quik Track net clip channels that offer easy net attachment and removal. And the net clips stay on the net! The side back stays and the rear ground crossbars are made of 13ga galvanized round steel pipe and the rear crossbars serve as the axle for the unique polyethylene rollers. The extra durable rear rollers are impervious to the weather and will function easily on any soccer field surface. And for additional safety, the side back stays extend back 10′ instead of the usual 8′ and when the rollers are added the “laws of physics” prevent these goals from accidentally tipping over while the front of the goal can be easily lifted and the goal moved to another location. All goals meet or exceed National High School Federation, NCAA, FIFA and ASTM F2056 and include an Eight Year Limited Warranty.
