					Hockey Goals
Hockey goals play a significant role in the game of hockey. Hockey goals
and nets used for street hockey, roller hockey, inline hockey, floor
hockey, ball hockey, and even pond hockey differ greatly. Hockey goals
are usually rectangular in shape with proportionate dimensions.
The standard size of hockey goals sold at most stores is 6 ft x 4ft x 2
ft. Popular manufacturers of hockey goals are Mylec, Franklin, and DOM.
These manufacturers make heavy duty galvanized steel hockey goals with
heavy-duty PVC tubing and deluxe nylon net. The PVC goals are the latest
designs that can be adjusted depending on the age of the players. The
size of the hockey goals ranges from mini-goals to official 6' x 4'
hockey goals. Some hockey goals come with net supports and wheels to
facilitate easy transportation to a side-line for training purposes and
to save wear and tear in the goalmouths.
The International Hockey Federation clearly outlines certain
specifications for the hockey goals. Rule 2 of the Hockey Rules Book
clearly explains the various norms required for a hockey goal. The exact
dimensions of the goals and their components and their position relative
to the back-line are well explained in this part. For a healthy and
competitive game, the hockey goals should not have any additional
fittings that could cause danger to players. For example, hockey goals
with wheels are not advisable. Any type of protrusion in the goals and
their components should also be removed prior to any match.
The specifications are not only applicable to the International Hockey
Federation event but also to other levels of hockey because they
guarantee a safe environment for the players to practice and play.
