This winter season has been one for the record books. The weather forecast has brought one polar vortex after another, sandwiched between bitter cold arctic blasts. It seems like everywhere - even the southern US - has been buried with wintry precipitation this season. Luckily, we will be rounding the bend into springtime soon enough!
After the Thaw
As many of us dig ourselves out of this particularly cold and snowy winter, it’ll soon be time to take to the fields again for outdoor sports. The best way to shake cabin fever is to get outside and get moving. With spring sports right around the corner, be sure your outdoor fields and nets will be ready to receive the warm-weather rush.
Extreme winter weather like this certainly takes its toll - on our sanity as well as our sports equipment! Outdoor nets and goal posts are often left out in the cold during the off-season, allowing for a great deal of winter wear-and-tear.
All of this arctic moisture can sneak into cracked paint, causing extensive rust damage on goal posts. Not only is rust unsightly, it can compromise the structure and safety of your goal posts as well. The wet winter weather along with biting winds rips at sports netting, often making them brittle and weak. Once the damage of winter is done, netting is more susceptible to holes and tears.
Before eager athletes reclaim the field from Old Man Winter this spring, invest in quality goal systems that will last. From goals and nets for soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey to football and rugby uprights, Sport Systems has the long-lasting gear you need.
Our goal posts and frames are sand blasted and powder coated for a chip-resistant finish, preventing against rust-causing moisture damage.
Knotless nylon netting can absorb the blows of athletic equipment as well as the winter wind. Our quality sports netting installs in a snap, making it an simple part of spring field maintenance.
