I was sent these soccer goals for review. This post contains affiliate links. The soccer obsession belongs to my family.
It’s that time of year again: fall soccer season is starting up for my youngest, though the teams Coach Husband coaches have been out there for a few weeks. With a new season comes a need for some new soccer equipment.
For some backyard practice and for my husband to take with him to his practices, we were sent some Half Moon Soccer Goals from Rukket Sports. We chose the 4 foot size(they are available in 2.5ft, 4ft, and 6ft). These are great for backyard play, and my husband often uses goals like these at his practices. They’re perfect for small-sided games, with no need for a goalie. They’re also great for shooting and passing practice, working on accuracy.
The Half Moon Goals from Rukket Sports are lightweight, come in a convenient carrying case, and are super easy to set up and take down. My 8 year old shown with the set of two goals in the carrying case for scale- and how lightweight they are.
Here’s what a goal looks like when you take it out of the case:
There’s a velcro loop on the side that you unfasten and the goals will pop up. I really liked that the stakes were attached to the goals, rather than having to worry about losing them. You simply push the stakes into the ground and you’re ready to play.
To the right of the Half Moon Goal, you can see the Grasshopper Kids 2×3 Soccer Goal, currently on sale as a set of 2 on the Rukket site for $34.99 and Amazon for $39.99. We’ll most likely be keeping the Grasshopper goals at the house for backyard practice while Coach Husband keeps the Half Moon Goals with all of his coaching gear at the soccer fields.
Another really convenient feature of the Half Moon Soccer Goals is that the instructions are attached to the inside of the bag. While set up is completely intuitive, folding up soccer goals like this isn’t always quite as obvious, so the directions are right there if you need them or are having someone else take them down. Though take down was really easy with these ones.
