About the Team 

We're here to provide all students interested in figure skating the chance to enjoy the sport and have fun while representing IU.  We currently have three components to our team: intercollegiate, synchro, and recreational. 

Our Mission 

The Indiana University Figure Skating Club will strive to give skaters the experience of being on a team and provide members leadership opportunities.  It will provide a means for team members to continue their sport and represent their school at competitions.

History of the Team

The Indiana University Figure Skating Club was started in 2003 by IU student Katie Laughner. Growing up a competitive figure skater she wanted to be able to continue skating in college. With no club at IU Katie took it upon herself to build the club from scratch and help it become the national powerhouse that it is today.

During the 2003-2004 season IU competed in its first freestyle competitions. In the past six years the freestyle team has grown to be one of the best in both the Midwest and the Nation. The IU freestyle team has been Midwest champions the past three years in a row and in 2007-2008 earned the silver medal at the Intercollegiate National Championships in Chelsea, MI.

Synchronized Skating was brought to Indiana University by IUFSC member Brittany DiSalvo. IU first competed in synchro during the 2005-2006 season under the direction of Brittany, and since then has competed in both Midwest and National competitions, quickly becoming one of the fastest growing teams in the country. 

IUFSC would not be the same without the dedication of these two ladies. Thank you Katie and Brittany for your heart and dedication to the IUFSC, the members now and in the future thank you!!

GO HOOSIERS!!!
