USIndoor serves a unique niche within the indoor recreational sports industry, targeting a group of about 1,200 multi-sport facilities and startups. About a third of that market are USIndoor members. The facilities average about 60,000 sq. ft. and $1.4 million in revenues, although there is quite a range, as there is in their geographic diversity. Offering a mix of playing surfaces, including turf fields, courts, rinks, plus ancillary activity areas (e.g., for fitness and batting cages) and meeting rooms, most facilities are privately owned and run their own programs. Soccer is the most popular sport, followed by football, basketball, lacrosse, baseball, volleyball and field hockey. Children’s programs, camps, parties and food & beverage account for additional programs.
Industry providers that cater to indoor sports join USIndoor to gain access to its facility and startup members and increase brand awareness. Providers, representing a myriad of goods and services, comprise an important constituency of USIndoor’s members, and their retention rate is over 90%. Most exhibit at USIndoor’s annual conference, while many benefit during the year through advertising, sponsorship and lead generation. Annual membership ($849) covers all company executives, employees and sales agents.
