Hockey is a heart-pumping sport that has migrated south from its origins north of the border. (We even have two NHL teams, the Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers, here in Florida.) Hockey has also evolved into a street version that can be played long after the ice melts. If you’re looking to improve your game — or turn your young ones onto the sport — here are several home hockey nets we recommend.
If you’re serious about improving your aim, this 10×6 foot EZ Goal is the ticket. It includes corner net pockets for sharpening your shooting and a 2-inch steel frame to make it rock solid. When you’re done playing, just fold it up for easy storage.
This high-impact plastic set is safe enough for even indoor play — especially thanks to the foam hockey balls included. The hockey sticks can be lengthened from 18 to 29 inches as your little players grow up.
This set is a virtual hat trick for future hockey moms and dads with pre-teen players. It’s designed for street hockey and includes one no-bounce hockey ball. It can be assembled in minutes and folded for storage just as quickly.
Where was this when I was a kid? Baseball, hockey and soccer fans will be happy with this multipurpose set, which includes a soccer ball, two hockey sticks, one street hockey puck and a pitch-back ball.
