2. Regulation-size ice hockey goals measure 4 feet high wide by 6 feet wide, with a standard net depth of 4 feet. The goal line, which the puck must cross completely to score a goal, is 2 inches wide.
3. Keep in mind that ice hockey net sizes may be smaller for youth and junior leagues. There are even mini hockey nets, which are great for both the smallest skaters and for the most skilled players looking to sharpen their shooting accuracy.
4. Official ice hockey goals are made of steel, but there are lighter-weight options with frames made from aluminum, plastic, and even wood.
5. Ice hockey goals have pegs that extend down from the goal posts. These fit into slots in the ice to keep the goals in place during play.
6. Roller hockey goals (also known as inline hockey goals) are the same size as ice hockey goals: 4 feet high by 6 feet wide.
7. Regulation size field hockey goals measure 7 feet high by 12 feet wide and are 4 feet in depth. These goals tend to have more variation in size to accommodate players of various age and skill levels.
8. Goals for floor hockey can vary widely in size. Consider the size of the playing floor and the pace you want to set for the game when selecting goals. Smaller goals work for smaller areas like basement rooms or garages, while larger goals are better for wide open spaces like gymnasiums.
9. Unless you have your own hockey rink or field, you may want to consider portability as you shop. Some of our hockey goals have wheels for easy transport, while others are foldable or easy to break down and set up- all great options for setting up games or practices on short notice.
