How Do You Install Goal Post Pads?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: July, 2022

Ensuring athlete safety is top priority in netball, football, and rugby. From protective equipment to proper flooring, there are many safety measures to be taken.

Whenever your outdoor field or indoor arena has a goal post, it’s very important to have proper goal post pads installed, as they simply wrap around and attach to the goal posts and then serve many purposes.

First, they do an excellent job protecting players from impact injury caused from exposed goal posts. Athletes are often so focused on what’s going on with the game, that they aren’t paying attention to how close they are to the goal post.

Post pads will provide players with a protective barrier around the goal post.

Pole and post pads are also an attractive and easy way to boost team pride and encourage school or league spirit with custom logo or team color placement and design.
