Introduction: 10x5x5 Soccer Goal

In this Instructable you will find instructions for a simple fool proof soccer goal that a five year old could make for around $40.

Step 1: Parts and Tools

Parts:
-4x 10 Foot Lengths of 1-1/4 Inch PVC Pipe
-6x 90 Degree CONDUIT Elbows
-6x 1-1/4 PVC Couplings

Tools:
-PVC "Scissors"
-Mallet

Step 2: Cutting

Cut 2 of the 4 pipes in halve (5 feet). Leaving You with 4 pieces.

Step 3: Assembly

Make the pieces in the pictures.
Rough:
-2x 5' pipes with two elbows each
-2x 5' pipes with one elbow each
Base:
Add a 10' pipe in between the pipes with two elbows each
Front:
Add a 10' pipe in between the pipes with one elbow each
Final:
Put it all together

Step 4: Net

This is the link to the net I am going to order I will update the pictures then.

Edit:
Do NOT get  this net I sadly learned that the aditional foot and a half added by the elbows throws off dimensions. I am sure there is still a net that will fit out there somewhere.

    The depth is five and a half feet so that would not work.

    i lost my account so this is L.messi, but my name says FC boise. So do you have any other ideas on nets

    you would have a major sagging problem it could even snap under the weight i never got a net for this i just use it without and it sags so i dont think it would work good luck

    Lightweight and cheap!!  Can be designed for take-apart/ indoor use.  As far as the net... you have to cut more off the pipes (18" ) to allow for the extra length of the elbows. Piece of cake!

    This looks good. The great thing about soccer is you don't need anything more than something round and some markers for the goal. Good job (and nice lawn) L
