Make your own street hockey, lacrosse or soccer goal!  Heavier than PVC so won't blow away in the wind, but inexpensive and easy to make! Free plans by ANA-WHITE.com

Here's a great gift idea that will get the kids moving and outside!

Build them a lacrosse, street hockey or soccer goal!!!

You can use this goal indoors or out, you can even stain it up and make it "farmhousey" and feature it in your rec room or basement.  It's much less expensive than buying a real goal, and more substantial than a plastic one - so won't get blown away in the wind or knocked over by a hard shot.

This street hockey goal was built by Jaime Costiglio for Handbuilt Holiday

If you are new here, Handbuilt Holiday is a series that Jaime Costiglio and I have put on for five years in a row where we share new, free gift plans every Friday in the weeks leading up to Christmas.  There are hundreds of amazing plans that you can grab for free right here.

Instructions

Step 1

Build the base frame as shown. 

 

If using 1x4s, use 3/4" pocket holes and 1-1/4" pocket hole screws. 

 

For the outdoor version (2x4s), use 2-3/4" screws.

Step 2

INDOOR VERSION: Attach 2x2s together at top with 1-1/2" pocket holes and 2-1/2" pocket hole screws.  Then attach 2x2 frame to 1x4 frame with 1-1/4" pocket hole screws, screwed through the 1x4s into the 2x2s from outside - 2 screws per joint.

 

OUTDOOR VERSION: Build the upper frame exactly as you did the lower frame in step 1 (but legs will be longer) using the 2-3/4" self tapping screws.  Then attach to the lower frame at the bottom corner.

Step 3

BOTH VERSIONS: Position cross piece where it will be installed and mark the angles.  Cut the angles with a circular saw or jigsaw.  

Step 4

BOTH VERSIONS: Attach in place with glue and wood screws. You can use pocket hole screws for indoor version, self tapping screws for outdoor version.
