These have been my son’s most-used gift over the last 3 years. Soccer goals are such a great present to encourage outdoor play, exercise, and team work.
Comments: My 9 year old has had these goals for 3 years. He enjoys playing soccer in a league during the fall, but is not obsessed with soccer by any means. However, he plays with these goals all year round. He takes them to the park every week to play with his friends, even when it is freezing and there are patches of snow on the ground.
I love that he is laughing and having fun while being outdoors and getting exercise. My son also puts them at either end of a hallway in our house to play with his younger brothers. It does make it a little difficult whenever anyone wants to walk down the hallway, but if my boys are playing happily together, I can deal with it. They also are fun for family picnic days. My husband plays with our older kids while I read a book on a blanket nearby.
These soccer goals have been such a hit, we’ve given them as gifts and they have always seemed to be appreciated. Technically, I think that the Golme set my son received as a gift might be slightly higher quality, but I usually give these cheaper Amazon brand ones as gifts. I can’t vouch for the durability of the Amazon ones. However, the Golme ones have been used EXTENSIVELY by our family for 3 years. My husband used them to coach 2 seasons of soccer and we have had no problems with them. They are fantastic as far as I’m concerned.
