Check Those Nets!!

Back in June of 2010 I went on a mini-rant about net safety and the deadly consequences it can have.

While not in the context of a match apparently, a 4th grader from Arkansas was killed when a falling soccer goal crushed his skull. Further details on this story are reported here.

While by itself this represents a horrible tragedy, it serves as another reminder to check those nets as the spring season begins as it really can save a life.

For me personally it gives even greater pause as Jr. is currently in 4th grade and is often found on various soccer fields. You can bet, I will check the nets myself, acting in an official capacity or just as a parent.
