Soccer net safety brought to you by Guelph Wellington EMS OPSEU Union

Unanchored nets can cause injury or death
Between the ages of 5-14, 42 per cent of Canadian children play soccer
Soccer nets can weigh as much as a large vending machine (over 500lbs.)
Because of their design, some nets can easily be tipped by a gust of wind or the weight of a small child
What to do
Secure and anchor all soccer nets
Always install posts on a flat level field
Discourage climbing or swinging activities on the net or crossbar
In the event of a medical emergency call 911.
