Video cameras - nets mess with your autofocus?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to take team video of my kids games this year and POSSIBLY going to buy a new camera.  In the past I've put gopros behind the goalie and shot through the glass with good results.  Some of the rinks have Livebarn so I will just use that video.  

I'm thinking of buying a camera and tripod and setting up at center ice from the bleachers to try and get a decent shot from there.  But I've also noticed that most of the rinks have nets up on the sides that I would be shooting "through".  So my question is for those of you who have done this, do the nets mess with the autofocus on the cameras?  Action cameras probably won't be effected.  But a DSLR or Camcorder might be.  Feedback from others?  I suppose on the DSLR I could just manual focus.  At that distance most of the shots would be at an "infinite" focus point anyway.  I don't want to drop $$$ on a camera and just get 60 minutes of netting.  lol
