NEW GOALIE CUSTOMIZER: Your Gear, Your Style, Your Design! DESIGN NOW >>
Pure Hockey offers an impressive variety of goals and replacement nets for all your practice and game-play needs. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to shoot during regulation ice hockey, pickup street hockey, living room mini hockey, or good old-fashioned pond hockey, we have you covered with trusted names, including Franklin, Winwell, and Bauer. Spend more time practicing, and less time chasing errant shots, with a backstop that fits your goal. (Maybe use the backstop to protect that garage door or basement wall while you’re at it—can’t hurt.) And since you play like you practice, hone your skills between games with a variety of shooter tutors and targets.
Regulation Hockey Goals
Regulation hockey nets measure 72" x 48" (or six feet wide by four feet tall), and 40" deep. The sturdiest of these goals are constructed with 2" steel pipes. Though disassembling and reassembling them is certainly possible, this equipment isn’t designed to break down and fold easily for transport. Typically, two players can carry a fully assembled goal, which also stores fully assembled.
Ice Hockey Goals
If you’re taking shots on goal with ice hockey pucks, you’ll want nets and pipes engineered to withstand those powerful forces. And they’re not limited to the ice—you can also use an ice hockey goal in the street, or your driveway or basement. Whatever the playing surface, these goals are specifically designed to stand up to ice hockey pucks. They start at 36" wide (three feet), and go all the way up to regulation size.
Street Hockey Goals
Street hockey goals are often made with an eye toward portability, collapsing or folding for easy transport. They’re made to withstand the forces generated by street hockey balls or pucks—typically much less force than an ice hockey puck.
Pond Hockey Goals
Pond hockey goals are built low to keep pucks low. When the puck stays down, there’s no taking a puck to the face, and everyone spends less time on puck hunts—ponds tend not to have boards. And since a game of pond hockey doesn’t typically include goalies, the small goal itself encourages sharpshooting accuracy. Use pond hockey goals anywhere you want to aim at a small target or keep the play low: ponds, basements, or yard rinks, for example.
Mini Hockey or Knee Hockey Goals
Knee hockey nets are generally the lightest weight of the bunch. Some are designed especially for easy assembly, disassembly, and transport. And because they stow away in a flash, they’re perfect for living room mini-hockey fun, an impromptu match at a friend’s house, or easy team fun in a hotel. These nets are made to stand up to the low impacts of mini hockey balls.
So you have a new goal…or you’ve used your old one so hard, and for so long, that it’s time for a new net. Either way, congratulations. Here are some basic guidelines to follow when you string your new net.
If your goal has bumpers, put those on first. Next, find the top corners and center of the net, and drape the net over the goal. Use zip ties or string to secure the net to the goal at the top corners, top center, bottom front corners, and at a couple of spots in the back. Now you can begin stringing your net.
How to String a Hockey Net in Four Steps
Tip: You can fold the string if you like, so that you’re holding two pieces. It’s a little easier to push through, and cuts down on the length of string you must pull through each time.
Tip:Pull the string and net tight after each weld.
Tip:For the cleanest look and the strongest net, don’t skip any welds or net holes.
