How to Make a Field Goal Holder

Save

Field goal holders are used for football practice. They are intended to take the place of another person and hold a football vertically so it can be kicked for field goals. Field goal holders usually cost between $20 and $45. Building your own can drastically save on this cost, especially if you need a few of them for your football team. PVC pipe is often used, since it is inexpensive and easy to work with.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 PVC pipes, 1/2-by-2-inches
  • PVC T-joint, 1/2-inch
  • 2 PVC elbows, 45-degree, 1/2-inch
  • 2 PVC pipes, 1/2-by-14-inches
  • PVC pipe, 1/2-by-10-inches
  • 3 PVC end caps
  • PVC cement
  • Coat one end of each 2-inch pipe in PVC cement and insert the glued ends into the top two holes of the T-joint. The pair of 2-inch pipes should be aligned.

  • Coat the other ends of the 2-inch pipes in glue and position the 45-degree elbows on their ends. The elbows between the two pipes should open up toward the same direction, and their angles should be perpendicular to the base of the T-joint. If you are holding the joint by the base of the "T" perpendicularly to the ground, then the 45-degree joints should be facing you directly, or directly away from you.

  • Glue one end of each 14-inch pipe with the PVC cement and insert them in the 45-degree elbows. Coat the open ends with glue and insert them into end caps.

  • Apply the PVC cement to the ends of the 10-inch pipe. Insert one end into the only open end on the T-joint and insert the other end into an end cap. Let the PVC cement dry according to instructions.

  • Rest the field goal holder on the 14-inch pipes and position the your football vertically underneath the 10-inch pipe.
