The Illinois Inline Hockey Hall of Fame was created in 2006 to honor individuals, organizations, and leagues that have been crucial to the sport of inline hockey in Illinois, USA. It was also created to honor players that have excelled in the sport of inline hockey. Each recipient must receive 7 out of 10 votes to be elected. The board is made up of 10 grandfathers. As of 2009, one player from each class will vote, leaving 6 grandfathers. Every year the number of grandfathers will decrease by one until only the president has a vote along with 1 hall of fame member from each class.

Each year in December, the Illinois Inline Hockey Hall of Fame will have a dinner to honor the year's inductees. In order to be considered for the Hall of Fame, players, coaches or teams must meet two of the following.
