Frequently Asked Questions
How strong are the Kickster Academy goals?
Our Football Goals, Spot Rebounders and Quick-Hit hitting nets are all made from super durable steel tubing, complimented by flexible fibre glass uprights to help form the shape of your goal or rebounder.
The products are repeat repetition tested with ball shots up to 120kph, with the exception of our Kickster Elite target goal which has been tested with close range shots up to 100mph – a video which can be seen on our Facebook page!

Is the base supposed to bend like that?
The first time you put your Kickster Goal or Rebounder together can be a bit strange if you have never done so, but within the first few seconds you will see how simple all of our products are to put together.
With all of our Play range Kickster Goals and Rebounders, there is supposed to be a small but perfectly designed curve in your baseframe before you attach the net. This is to allow the uprights on either side to help keep tension in the net, so you can enjoy your Kickster Goal or Rebounder to its full effect.
Are the uprights supposed to bend like that?
The uprights are made of a super durable and flexible fiberglass, and are designed to have a small bend in them sufficient to keep tension in the net of your Kickster Football Goal or Spot Rebounder.
We recommend bending the upright ownwards from side on, or towards you from its position locked in to the base frame.
How do I assemble my Kickster Academy Football Goal / Spot Rebounder
The great thing about our 'Kickster' range of Goals and Spot Rebounders is that the basic principle is essentially the same- once you have put one up, you can put them all up!
There are 4 constituent parts to your Kickster Goal.
The baseframe, which unfolds and clicks together to form the main floor shape of your goal so that you have a long bar across the back and two bars pointing away from the longer bar. Two steel and fibreglass 'uprights' which are pre-elasticated and sit in the remaining opening in the corner joint of the baseframe.
Lastly of course, the net, which loops around the front facing arms of the bottom of the base frame, and at the top of the upright where the net can be 'plugged in' by slightly bending the uprights towards you.
As can be seen in this video, the only differences with our Spot Rebounders is the addition of the Tilt Bar, which is also Pre-Elasticated and slides along the forward facing arms of the base frame to add the tilt aspect to the Rebounder, and of course, the net is slightly different in shape but fits to the frame in the same fashion as with the Kickster Goal.
I need more bungees / net clips!
If you require more bungees to attach the net to the base frame, or net clips to attach the net to the uprights, please get in touch with us and we can send some out subject to availability.
What size goal should I get?
While Quickplay believes that any size Kickster Football Goal or Spot Rebounder can be used in a multitude of situations and for a wide range of training scenarios for players of any age, if you need goals specifically for match day scenarios The FA outlines specific criteria to be met for certain ages.
A 12 x 6 goal size is also recommended for 7-a-side Mini Soccer in the U9/U10 category.
Youth Soccer in the U11/U12 category playing 9-a-side suggests a 16 x 7 goal, for which you might consider our Ultra Portable Kickster Academy 16 x 7 goal.
From U13 onwards, the recommended size is a 21 x 7 goal which Quickplay will proudly be releasing in Ultra Portable Kickster variety and in Match Standard range in Summer 2016, to be confirmed soon...
Where is appropriate to use my Kickster Goal or Rebounder?
Your Quickplay Kickster Academy Football Goal or Spot Rebounder is perfect for the garden, the park or the beach! Its innovative design and super-quick set up time mean it can be put up and packed away in less than 2 minutes into a convenient carry-bag.
The Quickplay Kickster Elite target goal, Spot Elite Rebounder and Handball goal range have been developed with a weighted base frame and rubber feet pads, so these goals can even be used on a hard surface with no need for ground pegs or sandbags.
Do you offer a warranty?

I have an older style Kickster, what do I do if I need replacement parts?
Sadly we can no longer offer replacements on earlier generation Kicksters, such as the Green Kickster Pro 2000 and the Kickster Pro 3600 as we no longer manufacture these parts. We also no longer offer replacements for uprights or nets of the older style 'metal pin' net and corresponding upright.
If you did have these goals and need replacements, we would love to hear from you to see if we can meet your requirements, so don't hesitate to call.
