Eight years ago, a moveable soccer goal tipped over onto the head of Zach Tran, killing him. A new Illinois law will prevent serious injuries and deaths like Zach’s. The new law is called the Moveable Soccer Goal Safety Act and was recently signed into law.
The new law requires current owners of moveable soccer goals to create a soccer goal safety and education policy that outlines how the organization will specifically address the safety issues associated with movable soccer goals. It also requires all soccer goals sold in the future be tip resistant.
