Meet Coach Sharon!

What’s your name and pronouns? Sharon Lee (She/Her)

When did you start skating? In 2020 aka the birth of jam-demic skaters 😅

Tell us a bit about your skating history: Most of my journey has been me, myself, and I thanks to lockdown. When things lightened up with travel restrictions, I flew a couple times to Toronto and learned from more experienced skaters.

What do you love the most about rollerskating? There’s a sense of freedom; maybe it’s the gliding aspect that brings this sensation. Also, I love how it challenges me creatively and athletically while jamming.

What about coaching do you enjoy? Helping, and watching skaters strive towards their goal.

What types of skating do you do? Jam/Rhythm skating

What’s your favorite skating move right now? Hmm… maybe toe spins?

Who/What inspires you right now in the skating world? My partner inspires me. He’s very hardworking, passionate, and meticulous when it comes to skating. Also, his skate fam/friends inspire me as well.

Who/What inspires you right now outside the world of skating? My friends. They’re all creative in many ways, and I’m constantly inspired by them.

Tell us something random and non-rollerskating about you: I’m a street dancer
