Step 1

Using a hacksaw, cut the pipes into two 5' pieces, two 4' pieces, four 3' pieces, and four 1' pieces.

Step 2

Lightly sand the ends of each piece. Then fit the pieces together with PVC elbows and tees: Make the base and top assemblies following the illustration, and then join the 4' and 3' pieces to the assemblies as shown. Add the 5' diagonal pieces to brace the goal.

Good to Know

For a permanent backyard soccer goal, add adhesive to the PVC pipes. Once you achieve the desired fit in Step 2, disassemble the goal. Then apply adhesive around the sanded ends of each pipe piece and reassemble.

Step 3

Cut a 12' length of wildlife netting. Wrap it around the exterior of the frame, and connect the netting to the pipe pieces with cable ties. Trim excess netting.

Step 4

If needed, use bricks or sandbags to weigh down the goal.
