Why SharpShooter Portable Soccer Goals are Great for Backyard Soccer Games

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

There’s one thing about having a big backyard – the ability to play games like soccer anytime you want to. Kids can have a lot of fun playing a variety of sports in their backyard provided they have the right space and equipment.

SharpShooter: Three Goals in One

The SharpShooter portable soccer goal is great for backyard games because it is a 3-in-1 goal. You can use the SharpShooter portable goals for soccer, hockey, or even lacrosse. They are simple to setup and they stay in place no matter how hard the ball is kicked. They go up in minutes and can easily be taken down after the game. Because they are sturdy, you can play as much as you want without having to worry about the goal moving around.

Highly portable, the goal collapses when you need to take it down or when you need to move it around. You can set it up for kids to practice when their next big game is on the way. Of course, adults can have fun too. When you have others over for a BBQ or a backyard sports match, you can use the SharpShooter goal and take it down easily and store it until it’s needed again.

The SharpShooter goal can be adjusted to 4×4, 6×4 and 8×4 to suit a variety of ages and games. This portable goal is so versatile you can use it all the time, especially to practice before the next big game.

All Weather, All Year

It’s an all-weather goal, so you can use it outdoors and indoors any time of the year. If you need to pick up the SharpShooter and move it to another field or location, you won’t have any problem since it collapses down for easy relocation.

What every player needs is to have access to a portable soccer goal, so they can practice or play anytime they want to. Having a SharpShooter goal is the one thing you can count on to help keep your kids in shape.

Helping the Environment (and Your Bottom Line) with Farpost Portable Soccer Goals

Monday, April 29th, 2013

The last thing a coach wants to deal with is broken equipment. A cracked goal or torn net can cost coaches valuable practice time and, of course, will also cost money to replace. But this waste isn’t just an issue for the coach: keeping damaged goals and nets out of the trashcan—and out of landfills—should also be a goal for any soccer team looking to go green. Fortunately, it’s easy to tackle both these issues by choosing one of Farpost’s built to last, aluminum portable soccer goals.

To help coaches avoid the hassle and waste of discarding and replacing broken equipment, every Farpost goal is made from sturdy aluminum and comes with a lifetime guarantee. Unlike cheaper plastics, the aluminum in Farpost goal frames won’t bend or crack, no matter what happens to them (whether on or off the field). With these robust, lightweight frames, coaches will never have to worry about finding themselves faced with unusable portable soccer goals during practice or on game day.

To complement Farpost’s sturdy frames, the portable goals also come with a knotless, high-quality net. These nets have a two year warranty, but they’ll often last much longer. This means that, unlike cheaper options, the nets won’t need to be regularly thrown out and replaced.

While the initial cost of aluminum frames is higher than plastic alternatives, the durability of the aluminum goals allows teams to save money in the long run. Those who choose Farpost will avoid the cost of replacement parts and can expect a return on their investment in as little as six years. And, of course, Farpost’s long-lasting soccer nets and goals are also a big help to busy coaches, who will never have to worry about spending valuable time on broken equipment.

The wear and tear of practice, games, and storage can quickly crack frames and erode nets, particularly those made from cheaper plastics. By choosing sturdy aluminum frames that will last a lifetime, coaches can save themselves time and money while also making sustainability a part of every practice and game.

Coaches Across Continents Use Farpost’s Portable Soccer Goals in Community Programs

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

For many people, soccer is more than just a game. In thousands of schools, towns, and countries throughout the world, the sport provides a way for players, coaches, and families to work together to build communities and empower youths. As part of the worldwide soccer community, Farpost Soccer Company is always looking for ways to support organizations that promote soccer’s positive influence. For this reason,  Farpost is proud to provide portable soccer goals and nets to Coaches Across Continents (CAC).

The vision of former soccer executive Nick Gates, Coaches Across Continents offers more than just a sports training program. Using their specially designed soccer education curriculum, the coaches and educators of CAC have been using soccer as a vehicle for social change since the non-profit’s inception in 2008. The curriculum focuses on integrating on-field coaching and classroom activities into lessons that focus on issues like conflict resolution, female empowerment, conservation, and health and wellness (and, of course, lots of fun!).

In 2009, CAC launched their Hat Trick Initiative, a three year plan to grow the program by focusing on three key goals (hence the name):

  1. Coaches and local volunteers commit to building a sustainable, locally-driven education program that meets the particular needs of each community.
  2. Through the Community Impact Coach program, select community leaders will train with CAC coaches in developing communities around the world.
  3. CAC will provide soccer kit and education supplies to help communities build and sustain their programs over the long term.

This last goal is where Farpost steps in to help. As a supplier of adjustable, portable soccer goals, Farpost is uniquely placed to provide Coaches Across Continents with the equipment they need to get their community projects up and running. And, after CAC has completed their curriculum, Farpost’s portable goals are left behind to help communities continue using what they’ve learned. Farpost’s Sharpshooter goals are already being used in Kigoma, Tanzania, and more goals will be distributed to developing communities in Uganda in 2013.


Since 2008, Coaches Across Continents has worked with dozens of communities in twenty different countries, and with the help of local partnerships and sponsors like Farpost, is continuing to grow every year.
