Sports Hall of Fame
Are you interested in nominating an Ironwood athlete to be inducted into the IAS Hall of Fame?
Any person, including those who are not a voting Board member, may nominate a candidate or team for membership into the Ironwood Area Sports Hall of Fame.
Nominations must include a biography of the candidate, i.e., the sports history of the individual in either paragraph or outline forms, and supporting data, i.e.; annuals, yearbooks, membership in other such organizations, newspaper clippings et al.
Nominations received and screened as complete by Jan 15th each year preceding the annual IASHOF election meeting will be considered at the annual selection meeting. Once a nomination is received, the nominee remains under permanent consideration for election.
Athletes must have completed their high school sports career at least five (5) years before the date of election.
Coaches, promoters, boosters, and organizations must have been involved in athletic endeavors for at least ten (10) years, coaches must be retired.
Deceased candidates are exempt from all restrictions.
The Board may decide to forgo a given year of induction.
The Board may decide to induct fewer than five (5) individual candidates and/or it may decide not to induct a team and/or organization.
Legends will be honored in odd number years.
Do you want to be a part of the action?
The IAS Hall of Fame board meets once a month to:
Organize the annual golf tournament
Organize the induction banquet
Hear requests from local youth sports organizations
Vote for new inductees
Relive amazing athletes and sports moments from times gone by
Although our goal is to meet on the first Monday of each month, sometimes things come up that require meeting dates to be adjusted. If you would like to join the Ironwood Area Sports Hall of Fame board, contact one of the members to find out when the next meeting is.
