Goal and Net Safety

Goal and Net Safety

Always inspect goals before each match and/or practice.

Always ensure goals are secured with sand bags on back bar or sidebars
6v6  turf goals 2 sand bags one each side
Note the grass field 6v6 goals with spike do not need sand bags
8v8 minimum  1 sand bag on back bar
11v11 mimimum 2 sand bags on back bar
Never allow anyone to climb or play on the goal or net
Never allow anyone to hang on the goal crossbar (e.g. chin-ups)
Movable goals should only be used on level (flat) fields.
Instruct players on safe handling and potential dangers associated with movable goals.
Coaches and/or parents should move goals; not youth players
When moving wheels should be rotated to allow easy moving. When in place replace wheels so frame contacts ground.
Push when ever possible, do not pull goals
Do not move with sand bags on back bar however replace sand bags when moved
