After skating professionally for one season Sharon began coaching in Kingston over fifteen years ago. During this time Sharon has coached Provincial medalists and has produced National level competitors (in all disciplines) that have gone on to compete internationally.
Ms. Nixon is the only level 4 NCCP National High Performance Coach in Kingston, ON. In September of 2018 Sharon opened Kingston’s newest and most innovative skating school - The Kingston Skating Academy (KSA). The private skating school offers on and off-ice training events for skaters of all levels. Sharon prides herself on utilizing local resources to develop the complete package for each athlete.
In addition to coaching, Sharon assists Skate Canada as a Regional Coach Developer/Evaluator and acts as a Club Resource Member & CanSkate Specialist for Skate Ontario.
Away from the rink Sharon owns and operates student rentals and, on occasion, teaches courses related to criminal justice at the local college and university.
Sharon just moved to Glenburnie with her husband and two boys ages 8 & 12. They are enjoying the outdoors and the (slightly) slower pace of country living with their new sheep-a-doodle puppy Tilly.
Our focus is on developing the complete athlete. KSA offers skaters a positive training environment both on and off the ice.
We host the best in the skating world to share their knowledge with skaters of all levels. World Champions Katelyn Osmond, Kurt Browning to name a few. Don't miss out on opportunities to learn from the best in the sport on and off the ice.
Kingston Skating Academy brings the best resources to the Kingston and surrounding area for excellence in skating.

Jenn was so right to point Halen in your direction and Halen would say that as well. She grew both as a person and a skater with your guidance and support. She was fortunate to have two very talented and dedicated coaches – saying thank you is not enough for all you do!
“I have had the pleasure of working with Sharon Nixon during some of her incredible workshops for the figure skating world. She is a motivated coach that is passionate about developing athletes, and she knows how to inspire young skaters. Sharon is organized, dedicated and understands the importance of coaching the “whole” athlete. Sharon’s desire to improve herself and those around her shows her commitment to high performance. The Kingston skating community is lucky to have a high level coach like Sharon Nixon.”
Mental Strength and High Performance Consultant;
"One thing I noticed Sharon was the close contact you establish and maintain as you skate WITH the canskaters - you play games appropriate to their age and you directly help them and show them whatever it is you are teaching- friendly approach and encouraging as well - props are age appropriate and are used to support stopping and starting skating, gliding, forward and backward skating ....
A few thoughts!"
My son Jackson loves coming down on Wednesday’s. He finds it a lot of fun and for that I want to thank you. I was a figure skater and tried to explain to Jackson the importance of skills. He always thought hockey was harder than figure skating until he started to learn from you. You do such an incredible job. Thank you for taking the time to help the kids. Thank you again for everything.
We love our skaters! Feel free to contact us during normal business hours.
