Why not all Portable Soccer Goals are the Same
Knowing what you will use a portable soccer goal for will determine the best type of goal for your needs. The same type of goal that you would use for a team practice or in a game is not the same type you would use for practicing drills or kicking the ball around with friends in your backyard or at the park.
Of course, the most noticeable difference between a soccer goal meant for use by a team and an individual player is the size. But there are some other more unnoticeable differences you will want to take into consideration before deciding which goal is right for your playing needs.
A Secure Anchoring System
When determining which portable soccer goal is best for your needs, you will want to consider if and how you can anchor the net to the ground. You will want to purchase a soccer goal you intend to use in games with a net that can be securely anchored, but the ability to anchor it to the ground is not as important if you only intend to use it for drills by yourself or for recreational use.
Ease of Portability
Now, if you intend to make long-term use of it for team practices and games, portability may not be as much of an issue. But if you intend to set it up and take it down multiple times, you will want to consider the below factors.
The weight of the material
Does it include a storage bag for the net
Does the storage bag come with a comfortable strap
Are the bag, net, and goal made of durable material
Can the posts that make up the goal fit in the trunk of your car
How easy is it to set it up
