Sharon E. Nixon M.A., ABD


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.

What our clients are saying about us


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.”
