WHO WE ARE

The Friends of the Indoor Sports Complex (FISC) organized in November 2019 to help raise private sector donations for the proposed Indoor Sports Complex (ISC) in Janesville, Wisconsin. 

The ISC will be a transformational project that will benefit the entire community for generations to come.

This is about investing in our future. This is about giving our young athletes the surface time they need. This is about drastically improving the quality of life of our residents. This is about showing new employers how the families of Rock County live, work, and play. This is about flexibility and creativity. This is about making Janesville, Wisconsin, a regional hub for sports tourism.

This is about community.

TIMELINE

COMMUNITY VIEWS

 

“A new ice arena is needed for not only entertainment for local residents but a place to help grow an increasingly popular sport in our city. Economically, the impacts could be huge too; two ice sheets could help promote more tournaments meaning more families would be staying and spending more time and money in the Janesville area.”
