My son loves any sport that involves a ball. As a result, I'm always looking for ways to let him learn a new sport. I wanted to give him a little soccer goal that he could practice shooting on.
PVC Pipe Children's Soccer Goal
The first step of the project was to cut the PVC pipe into segments to make the pieces. I cut two pieces at 36" (the crossbars) and four pieces at 24" (the sides).
Assembly was pretty simple. I started by assembling the sides, by inserting two of the 24" pieces into an elbow to make a giant L. Once the sides were set up, I added an elbow to each end of the crossbars, then attached them to the sides.
Once the goal was assembled, I attached the net. The cargo net I bought had hooks that I utilized in attaching the goal, but if you choose a different material, you can adjust your plans to whatever works (Maybe zip ties, etc.)
A shot of the upper corner assembly. As you can see here, I used the cargo net hooks by looping them around the pipe and hooking them back on itself.
A shot of the lower corner assembly. Similar to the pepper, you can see how I hooked the cargo net to the frame.
