Field Prep

We are lucky to have great fields in Irvine. The fields do require us to set up or put away some equipment. As parents, we should be helping with this task, so that your coach does not need to.

Bownets (portable goals) are the rectangular goals that use poles to keep the net the proper shape.

We use 6x12 bownets for 10u games. These take only about 2 minutes to set up, once you know what you are doing. Below is a video to help you out, as well as a few important tips:

There is a metal button you push to fold corners. Be CAREFUL and fold slowly so you don't pinch your fingers.


  • The 6x12 bownets 'stretch' out. In the video, it is done before it's unfolded, by 'lifting up' until it clicks.
  • When putting bownets away, do NOT wrap the loose net around the frame, it will become very tangled. Instead, place the frame into the bag, and put the loose netting right on top. Then zip the bag.
  • Here is a 2 minute setup video for the 6x12 bownet.
  • Here is a 2 minute tear-down video for the 6x12 bownet.
  • The 6x18 is the same setup as the 6x12, but expands twice.

Pugg goals are the half-circle goals that fold up flat and only take a few moments to set up.

  • To set up, there should be one side (the back) with a 'peg' that will push down into the ground. The other side (top) has the branding label.
  • When putting away, one method is to hold one corner with one hand, grab the other corner with the palm facing out, and twist. Video
  • When putting away, another method is to put one corner on the ground, grab the opposite side, and push left hand to right foot. Video
  • If putting two into a bag together, put one on top of the other, lined up, and place both in bag at the same time.

Corner Flags are small rectangular flags attached to 5 foot poles.
These flags are placed in each corner of the field. This is usually at 8u and older games. This helps keep track of where the edge of the field is, for the players as well as the referees and coaches.
The flags get placed right at the corner, at the intersection of the touch line (sideline) and the goal line.
