We’ve shown you how to build your own pvc hockey goal before, but what about when you want to make things a little more challenging?
The official website for the U.S. Pond Hockey Championships shows you how to make one. Materials consist of a few 2″ x 6″s, some screws, and a sheet of plywood.
If you’ve never seen one of these before, they have two small openings near the outside. Put the puck in either one of the two holes and you score. It’s a great contraption to use when you don’t have a goalie. The reason for the sheet across the top is to prevent deflections from going over the top and making it difficult to discern if the goal was legitimate. If you want to save some money on the plywood, you might try salvaging a few old real estate or political campaign signs.
The one we built doesn’t have a “lid” and we used 2″ x 4″s since we already had some lumber laying around. It works great and the pond and in the concrete warehouse with a roller hockey puck.
