Goal posts on the way out at Davis County schools

KAYSVILLE, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) – Permanent goal posts for soccer are disappearing from fields at some Davis County schools.
KAYSVILLE, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) – Permanent goal posts for soccer are disappearing from fields at some Davis County schools.

The district just recently decided to remove them from all elementary and junior high schools, but some parents say they were left out of the game.

Holly Raphael says she didn't even know they were gone from her sons school until she saw a post on Facebook.

"Our kids want to play soccer. There are thousands and thousands of kids in this area that play soccer. What are they going to do without a goal?," says Raphael.

She took that question and many others to the district, but she says she walked away with no answers.

"I was not satisfied with any of the answers I got yesterday," says Raphael.

The district says one reason for the move is to protect people playing on the field. They say it's not safe for rugby, football and lacrosse players who share the fields. The district also claims it's expensive and hard on the grounds to repair the old goal posts.

The district will allow soccer organizations to bring their own portable goal posts to use the fields.

"If they have old equipment and they feel that it's not safe go ahead and remove it, but don't pass the cost on to the soccer community," says Raphael.

The district insists this will benefit the soccer community by allowing for three or four games at one time instead of one or two.

"What we had worked. I didn't ever hear of any problems," says Raphael.
