Step 7: Attach the net

Wrap the netting around the goal posts, leaving it a little loose so that it catches a soccer ball without tearing. Then feed zip ties through the netting and around the pipes, connecting the ties and pulling them tight. Do this every few inches until all the netting is attached. Using utility scissors, snip off the long ends of the ties, and turn the joints to the back so that they’re hard to see.

Hey, kids! Your little hands can be a big help when it comes to threading the ties through the netting. Just be sure to have a parent check that they’re connected tightly.
