Lacrosse is a sport whose popularity continues to grow by leaps and bounds, with more high schools launching varsity programs and more youth organizations developing lacrosse federations. More people are interested in the sport than ever before in search of the right lacrosse target for their league or team. What is the best lacrosse goal for your needs?
Make sure to focus on these three variables when starting your search for the right lacrosse target:
1) its size and dimensions; 2) a distinction between official lacrosse goals and practice lacrosse goals; and 3) whether a portable lacrosse goal is best suited to your situation.
What factors should be considered when buying a lacrosse goal?
Size: Organization targets for youth, high school or college tournaments measure 6 x 6. Nets are sold by diameter or nets in sizes 2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm and 6mm. Most targets include a 2.5mm or 3mm mesh. The only time you might need a different size of lacrosse would be indoor lacrosse, which uses a 4-foot-high, 4-foot-wide target.
What is the difference between an official lacrosse goal and a backyard training goal? NET USE: Official lacrosse goals are square from welded corners, as opposed to rounded corners in lacrosse training goals. Official lacrosse targets use thicker steel tubes between 1.75 inches and 2 inches in diameter, while practice lacrosse targets include 1.5 inch steel tubes.
Official lacrosse targets are extremely heavy, often exceeding 100lbs, and are made of strong, high-quality metal that is not the most cost-effective material used to manufacture lacrosse practice targets.
Portable, lightweight, foldable lacrosse goals enable you to take your lacrosse goal anywhere you go. It’s useful for anyone who might want to move the target to different places in their yard or even move it to practices.
These portable lacrosse targets usually fold up in a jiffy so transporting them from one place to another is simplified. You can find exercise goals that weigh as little as 15 pounds but still feature stainless steel that will last a long time, even in bad weather. Formal lacrosse targets that are often heavier are not foldable.
