General Questions

Our goals are constructed of premium 1x2s for the frames and 1/2″ Birch plywood game surface (“crossbar” and “posts”). The goals are strong enough to withstand gameplay with our lightweight Spotkick soccer ball OR a standard soccer ball. You should never sit or stand on the Spotkick goal for obvious safety reasons.

Yes, the posts (legs) of the Spotkick goals are hinged and fold under for flat storage and transportation.

While all Spotkick goals are coated with polyurethane to protect them from the elements, we do not recommend leaving the goals outside when not in play. The lifespan of the Spotkick goals will be shortened significantly if they are exposed to rain/moisture. Since we use cabinet grade plywood for quality, quick temperature fluctuations, coupled with moisture can damage your goals.

We do not offer custom made Spotkick goals at this time.

Gameplay Questions

All of the scoring is the same as described above. The only difference is that you start the game with a specified kicker and receiver. Players on both teams switch roles when the first team reaches 13 points.

No, just like in a real soccer game, the whole ball must cross the whole line to be awarded full points. For example, if the kicker attempts a “classic” shot, the entire ball must cross the front edge of the goal. It does not need to cross completely through the goal and out the other side. The same is true if the scoring team attempts to score a “reverse”. In that case, the ball must completely pass the reverse entry of the goal.

Yes, the receiver is allowed to move anywhere but players can only score points if the receiver touches the ball in the air. If the ball hits the ground and then gets redirected, no points are awarded.

The short answer is no. A player may not touch the goal and no body part may enter the space above the Spotkick goal. We have seen players attempt to "slam dunk" the ball with the sole of their foot but this action is not allowed.

No, the ball must hit the goal without hitting the ground to earn 3 points. If the ball hits the ground before hitting the goal, no points are awarded.

No points are awarded if the goal falls over. This is a game of skill and finesse, and the ball should not be shot at the goal.

If a team exceeds 25 points, then they deduct that number from their current score. For example, a team has 24 and then scores 3 points. The 3 points are deducted from 24 as a penalty, and they now have 21. Play continues. You must plan to score enough to get EXACTLY 25 points. That’s part of the fun!

If both teams have taken an equal number of opportunities to score (rounds) and the score is tied, the teams go into overtime. Overtime consists of one full, additional round. The team that scores the most points in that round is declared the winner. If the score is tied again, this process repeats until a team wins. Teams must complete the full round. There is no "sudden death."
