Goal Safety

 We all need Goals.  Secure them. 
  • Securely anchor or counter-weight portable goals at all times.
  • Never climb on the net or goal framework.
  • Instruct soccer volunteers and players on the safe handing of and potential dangers associated with movable soccer goals.
  • Use movable soccer goals only on level (flat) fields.
  • Remove nets when goals are not in use.
  • Tip unused goals onto their goal face, or chain them face-to-face. You can also chain unused goals to nearby fence posts or other sturdy fixtures.
  • Check all connecting hardware before every use. Replace damaged or missing fasteners immediately.
  • Use warning labels and make sure they are clearly visible.
  • Fully disassemble goals for off-season storage.
