The ASTM F2950-14 Standard Safety and Performance Specification for Soccer Goals:
- Applies to all soccer goals with a total weight greater than 40 lbs regardless of the size/dimensions of the goal.
- Allows soccer goals with a total weight (including netting and hardware) of less than 80 lbs to be exempt from the Unanchored Goal Testing and Anchored Goal Testing requirements.
- Requires movable soccer goals with a total weight greater than 80 lbs to be anchored and secured at ALL times!
For soccer goals with a total weight greater than 80 lbs, Keeper Goals recommends Duckbill Anchors to secure and anchor the goal. Learn more by visiting our safety page
Please contact Keeper Goals for guidance and to discuss options regarding properly ground anchoring or counterweight balancing your soccer goals to meet ASTM requirements.
