The Heart of Illinois Skating Club is a member club of U.S. Figure Skating based out of the Owens Center in Peoria, IL.  The club was established in 2001 with approximately 25 members and we have since grown to over 100 members.  The Club was formed to promote the growth and development of figure skaters in Central Illinois as well as to support the education and promotion of U.S. Figure Skating within our community.  It is the goal of HOISC to provide a positive and supportive environment for figure skaters of all ages to develop their skills.  We work to provide venues for the enjoyment of figure skating for both skaters and spectators alike.


Early in 2011, we applied for and were granted 501(c)(3) tax exempt status with the federal government.  From our various fundraising efforts, we have been able to provide valuable ice time for our skaters and coaches necessary for them to develop their skills; to provide test sessions in which the skaters can test their abilities to advance in the U.S. Figure Skating levels of achievement; and to host local competitions for skaters.  Furthermore, we look forward to providing our community with entertaining figure skating shows featuring our local skaters and guest skaters.
