The Boston Skating Club has always been an informal name commonly used by many in the public to refer to The Skating Club of Boston. This remains true today! In 1996, however, The Boston Skating Club was officially incorporated with the purpose of running large national and international skating events. This proved to be very rewarding, as the Club produced and promoted the 2001 State Farm U.S. Figure Skating Championships, the 2014 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships, and the 2016 ISU World Figure Skating Championships. With the advent of more nimble and less expensive limited liability corporations since then, The Boston Skating Club is less necessary for this purpose. But regardless of its official classification, The Boston Skating Club will always remain a colloquial name for The Skating Club of Boston to many inside and outside of the U.S. Figure Skating community.
