What is the use for your goals? If you just want to practice on your own, then a compact soccer goal or a rebounding soccer goal may be just what you need. You may even believe to make your own goal. For personal use, a 24 foot wide goal is too big. A much smaller goal will be less expensive and will help you with your soccer goal shooting training.
Some things you should consider when looking for 8 x 24 soccer goals:
Safety counterweights - Make sure the goal is balanced to avoid a tip-over that could hurt you and/or your teammates. Also check that the goal has at least four ground mounting locations.
Style - Are you looking for a goal with rounded or square posts? Your league may have regulations regarding this, but opt for a square post goal if you have a choice. This will force your team to be more accurate because rounded poles will allow some close goals to skip into the net if you hit the post.
Warranty - Make sure your goals come with a good warranty, or you may be out of luck if it quickly rusts or breaks.
Shipping charge - Don't be convinced that just because the “sticker” price is low, that means you're getting a good deal. Some companies compensate this with higher shipping and handling rates. Also because soccer goals are large, you may have to use freight shipping. Be sure to investigate all of your shipping options and costs before you order.
And most of all, have fun with your new equipment!
