About Kurt Nichols

Meet Kurt Nichols

Raised in a family of skaters, Kurt got his start on the ice from figure skating, but also found joy in playing hockey throughout high school and early college. After graduating from Clarkson University and moving to New York City, Kurt soon discovered he had a talent for sharing that joy and love of skating with others.

Over the course of his thirteen years as a coach, Kurt has developed a unique curriculum that combines the fluidity and efficiency of figure skating with the aggression and power of hockey. His firm but intense coaching style draws from a deep well of knowledge and experience and tailors each lesson to his individual players needs.

Kurt has been the head power skating coach for a variety of successful teams including the NYC Cyclones, North Park Hockey, Central Park Hawks and more. Additionally, he’s coached individual players on high-performing teams like the New Jersey Avalanche and Connecticut Rough Riders.
