A fellow lacrosse parent first made one of these lacrosse nets and after my husband studied it, he was able to make one of his own with minor changes. They are very easy and quite inexpensive to make (vs buying one).
1 1/2 inch x 24 feet PVC pipe
4 x 90 degree corners
'Y' joint (with drain and plug)
2x3inch bolt with washer and wing nut
Replacement hockey net (54 inch)
Since my son is only 6 years old, he plays with a smaller lacrosse net. The net opening is 48 inches high by 48 inches wide.
- 3 pieces to 48 inches long
- 2 pieces to 63 inches long
He glued the 2 top 90 degree pieces and the bottom 'Y' piece. He then decided (since it couldn't be glued) to put a large bolt through the bottom 2 x 90degrees and the PVC pipe to secure them. This allows us to take apart the net for storage (or transporting to the basement) during the winter months. He simply drilled straight through the 90 degree and the pipe being extra cautious that the holes lined up.
A couple of hours of work and here is what we ended up with. A home made lacrosse net.
