Another Indoor Center Opens in Beaverton

Introducing Beaverton Indoor Soccer. If the area wasn't already over-saturated with indoor soccer facilities, now it is. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. The prices to field a team have continued to rise and leagues fill up quick if their not already full. Hopefully the addition of a new facility in Beaverton will drive down prices and force each center to improve it's offerings.

A quick glance at the website doesn't reveal much detail on the field, but I did discover some interesting information.
  1. Team Fees will be $545. This is cheaper than Portland Indoor, SoccerPlex, Tualatin Indoor, and Indoor Goals. They are basically undercutting the entire indoor soccer market. League fees should never have passed $600 in the first place, so it's refreshing to see a new competitor charging a more affordable and appropriate price.
  2. Player Cards will cost $10. This is also cheaper than most of the other facilities. The one exception being Portland Indoor, which doesn't even require cards.
  3. Men's, Women's, and COED leagues will be offered.
  4. Drop In soccer is offered Monday - Friday from 12 PM to 2 PM. Cost is $5.
There are no pictures available yet of the field or the facility, so I will need to make a stop soon to find out more information. I have been in the process of organizing a soccer team from the Nike Employee Store, and this facility might be the perfect spot to start at. I'll have a Pitch Black Undercover up in the near future! Stay Tuned!


  1. If you're willing to pay $545 per team to play on field roughly half the total sq. feet of a traditional Indoor Soccer field. Beaverton Indoor listed on the web site as 45 to 50 yds long by 20 yds wide.. 145 feet by 60 feet. Now if they offered 5 v 5(max) which seems more appropriate for these dimensions at $545 this price is actually on par with Soccerplex's $700 for 7 v 7 coed. Team costs are divided by Individuals, typically. $100 per player on the field. Try playing 7 v 7 coed on this field it would be a invitation for injuries...If those dimensions are real they should consider the meantime they need to get quality participant insurance, with the number of collisions coupled withthese dimensions. No real undercutting of prices with a $545 price tag per team. Using the base of $600 per team on a team of 10 to 12 players it's a $4 to $5 dollar savings per person. or the cost of 1 gallon of gas.

  2. David. Thanks for the comment. I missed the grand opening details where they highlight the field size when i visited the site a few days back. Your right.. much smaller.

    Portland Indoor: 161 x 86 feet
    Indoor Goals: 180 x 80 feet
    Tualatin Indoor: 186 x 86 feet

    Now im having second thoughts on playing here. They are offering a $100 discount, so teams are only $445, and it also appears they are offering free player cards ($10 savings). With these specials there would be a decent savings per player despite fewer members per team.
