Coaches and parents, please remind your players to not hang on the soccer goals (especially U6 and U8 players and goals). I saw a near-catastrophe last night on 4B, before I interceded.
We’ve been fortunate at the Soccer Complex, but there are numerous cases in the US of soccer goals falling on kids causing serious injury and death. A falling crossbar creates an enormous amount of force.
