As with most anything these days, you have many places you can go to find the best price on soccer goals for sale. There are a lot of variables when picking out your goals and your best bet is to figure out just what you want before you head off to do some comparison shopping.
Goals can vary in size, and portability. You will want to figure out just what size you have room for in your backyard. Do you want a full size, regulation goal, or would something smaller be better for the size of your yard and the size of your kid?
What type of net do you want? They are usually made of polyethylene. The thickness of the cord can be between 2 mm up to 5 mm. Obviously the thicker the cord the more heavy duty the net will be ( it will also cost more so you have to strike the right balance between durability and cost).
Even the mesh size (the size of the squares that make up the net) can vary. They are sized from 2″ up to 5.5″. Again, the different sizes will determine the strength and price of the net. The wider apart the mesh is the less strength it will have. It will still be very durable just not as durable as it would be if it were a tighter mesh (but you can save yourself some money in the short term, which may not be a bad idea until you’re sure your kid isn’t going to decide that they don’t like soccer next week)!
The goal itself can be portable so you can fold it up and put it in your trunk, or it can be permanently attached to the backyard. Sometimes you may even want both… a more permanent backyard goal and a smaller, fold up portable goal that you can leave in your trunk so you can play a game at the park.
There are even goals that are designed in such a way that the ball will rebound out of the goal. This is perfect for some practice sessions. The player can practice their trapping skills when the ball is rebounded or they can just kick it again.
No matter what type of goal(s) you want your best bet is to try and find a used one online or in your local paper. There are many times when a parent will rush out and get the greatest gear for their budding star only to find out that their child doesn’t want to play anymore. You can get a great deal this way.
Another thing to do is to head online to compare prices. This is the easiest way to comparison shop without going broke using up gas to go from one store to the next. Online shopping will almost always give you a better deal. Make sure you include shipping costs when price shopping online.
Finding soccer goals for sale isn’t going to be the problem. The problem is going to be to narrow your search down to just one type of goal. With so many cool ‘toys’ out there, you may just find that you want to buy more than one goal for your soccer enthusiast.
