Official Goal Sizes by Sport and Age - Metric and Imperial

First things first. Every sport, age and discipline have their own correct size goal or net. For example, Football Australia regulates that each age-group uses specific goals, but be aware that outdoor soccer is different to futsal (Indoor soccer) and they require different size goals. FIFA also has a set of standards, but then gives each country allowances for juniors and kids. 

So always keep in mind that you need to know what you are using the goal for.
