Lugging around a mannequin from practice to practice can be a pain. The weight and bulkiness makes it difficult to carry around or move during practice.

Our Soccer Innovations Mannequins are made with wind resistant mesh covers. This prevents the mannequin from breaking, being blown over, and create realistic ball deflections. This helps to not only train the free kick taker, but can also be utilized in goalkeeper training.
