"Jumpers for goal posts"
When impromptu games of football took place in by gone days jumpers were used for goal posts. All who played in those games will remember the many squabbles that took place with every shot that was within inches of the jumper cum goalpost. To put a stop to those incessant arguments a soccer crazy kid in the late fifties produced a makeshift goal post from off-cuts of wood and some Woolworths pea netting to create the very first mini soccer goal.This boyhood football goal eventually led to the Plastic goals we all enjoy and use to day. That lad ,our company chairman, grew up and went on to make the first lightweight yet strong plastic Mini Soccer Goal that was virtually impossible to knock over, light enough to carry in a small bag and with the addition of a patented net fixing the goals could be quickly erected allowing a football pitch to be set up anywhere at anytime. From that first wood and pea netting goal the small sided game "Mini Soccer" was created and that led to the explosion of the football goalpost manufacturing industry. They say imitation is the best form of flattery and this concept of safe football goal posts for children has been copied many times but none have come anywhere near to the strength and longevity of the original ITSA GOAL posts.
Mini Soccer football Goal - Size
The recommended Football Association Mini Soccer goal size is 3.6 M x 1.8 M (12' x 6'). We strongly recommend that heavy steel freestanding goalposts are not used around young children. We suggest that heavy steel free standing goal posts are never used around young children. The younger the kids playing Mini Soccer the lighter the goal post weight needs to be.
Mini Soccer - Pitch Size
The maximum size pitch for the 5v5 format pitch is 40 yards x 30 yards and the 7v7 game is played on a maximum pitch size of 60 yards x 40 yards.
Mini Soccer football - Age Groups
5v5 football is for the very young up to the age of seven and 7v7 football is played to the age of nine.
