    Hi Cheryl,

    Dismantled, the TEKK Trainer would be able to fit into the car and be transported with a little bit movement. The problem comes when you need to assemble and dismantle it every single time you need to use it. If this is the ‘road’ you want to go down then I highly recommend you grab yourself a carry bag to make thing’s easier. Again, it shouldn’t be too much of a problem to setup and take down- especially if you get some of the players to help you.

    When it comes to slightly bigger pieces of equipment like the TEKK Trainer we tend to keep them at the venue if possible. Sometimes we have a secure lockup or an out-building depending on where we’re coaching.This is more for the ease of setting up than anything else.

    I’m not sure what space you have in your car but if it’s that much of a worry you do have other options. Here’s two that might help;

    Crazy Catch Rebound Nets: These are relativity new on the US market but have been a huge success in Europe. You’ve got a choice of different sizes depending on what you’re looking to use them for. Again, space might be an issue with the larger ‘Professional’ rebound net. As the name suggest though, they are more for throwing and catching.

    SKLZ Quickster Rebound Net: Although not as impressive in regards to size and stability the SKLZ Quickster is far more portable if that’s what you’re looking for!

    Both are different to the TEKK, and of course don’t come with the durability and angle-changing factors. But they are, far more easier to transport!

    If you’re interested here’s a bunch of other Soccer Rebounders that might suit you better…

    Hope this helps a little bit better Cheryl! And whatever you decide to go with we’d love to hear what it was and why! Be great to share with our readers!

    Take Care!

    Hi Leonard – thanks for the comment!

    Both Powernet and Bownet are different brands with very similar features. I’ve gone into more details on both brands which you can find here: https://portablesportscoach.com/powernet-vs-bownet/

    Hope that helps!

    Spot on Michael – I’ve even started getting older players to try and create / develop games themselves. Gives them a sense of control and creativity over their own skill development.

    Try it and see how it goes – Chris

    Hi Donna,

    Thanks for your comment – much appreciated! You’re so right, it can be used for the big sports such as Lacrosse and Soccer, but there are so many other fundamental movement skill games it can be used for two. For example; simple throwing and catching games would work perfectly – and remember it doesn’t always have to be competitive!

    Thanks for comment!

    Take Care,

    Chris
