How much Hockey Netting do I need?
You'll need to measure the goal opening- height and width, and, the depth of the top shelf from the crossbar back to the center support bar, and the depth of the base from the goal line to the back.
Your goal netting 'width' is determined by adding the depth of your top shelf to the length of the center support bar. The netting itself will install 'sideways', meaning the 'width' will go vertically when installed.
The Length of netting needed is usually the height of your goal x 2, plus the width, plus one foot, x 0.75 (4 4 6 1 x 0.75 for a 6x4 goal). Goal depth's vary, this is accommodated by using the correct 'width' netting. Why all the math? The actual length is reduced due to the difference of measuring a stretched edge of the netting, vs the shorter edge when the netting is filled out.
For NHL style 'trimmed fit', regulation 6'x4' goals will require 15 feet(stretched edge measurement) of netting. Length sold is a bit over 11 feet after the math exercise. Some goals have a satisfactory fit with less netting.
Because the netting will conform to your specific goal, you will get more length out of netting at the expense of height, and vice-versa.
Special circumstances may included the 'Art Ross' style hockey goals (shaped like a 'B' when viewed overhead as opposed to a 'D'), rectangular top shelf corners and two center support bars.
