Today we are going to show you with just a few Maker Pipe connectors, a cheap soccer net, and some conduit you can build this easy DIY soccer goal and add some summer fun for the whole family!


(10) T connectors

Soccer net

(4) 10 ft sticks of 3/4" EMT conduit

Step 1: Measure & Cut

For the build we need 8 total pipes. If you are using the net we linked then you can use these measurements, but if you decide on a larger or smaller net keep in mind you will need more conduit and different lengths. The easiest way to cut the conduit is with this metal pipe and tube cutter.

The 8 pipes we need are

  • (2) 6 foot pipes
  • (2) 4 foot pipes
  • (2) 34" pipes
  • (2) 55" pipes

Step 2: The First Connections

Start by laying one of the 6 foot pipes on the ground and add the two 4 foot pipes vertically using the t connectors.

Step 3: Add Two Vertical Pipes

Add a t connector pointed up on each end of the 4 foot pipes, and
add the two 34 inch pipes vertically inside the T’s we just installed.

Step 4: Raise the Goal and Add the Connecting Pipes

Raise the goal up so the 34 inch pipes are flat on the ground. Add the final 6 foot pipe connecting it to the two 34 inch pipes. Clamp down with the t and tighten fully.

Step 5: Add the Vertical Support Pipes

Now lower the goal to the original position so we can add the vertical support pipes. Add a t connector loosely on the bottom as close to the preexisting connectors as possible.

Step 6: Add the Two Final T's to Secure the Support Pipes

Insert the pipe and tilt it until it lines up with the top 6 foot pole. Once its aligned add the final two t’s clamping down on the pipes.

Step 7: Add & Secure the Net

The net we linked from amazon came with instructions and included velcro straps to secure the net to the frame. In case you get a different net I will explain the easiest way to attach it to the frame. Start by adding the top two corners followed by the corners directly below. I used two straps on each corner like this to make sure it was secure. Add straps to the back corners on the bottom, and the fill in the gaps with the remaining straps.
