“Hope can be ignited by a spark of encouragement”


Julie Ackerman-Schultz


The passion for athletics and encouraging others has always been a part of our DNA. Stoked early in life while captaining sports teams (football, baseball, and hockey) at our alma mater – playing for the Huskies of Port Huron Northern.


It was during this time, and after our playing days that we were invited by Blue Water Area Hall of Fame Coaches to join their football program as volunteer assistant coaches. Our enthusiasm for mentoring and inspiring others really blossomed at this point.


Another extremely important part of our life's foundation and trajectory, and something we will forever be thankful for (along with a multitude of very significant people) is the unconditional love our parents (Keith & Frances) and siblings (Shaleene, Tim, & Chris) bestowed on us!! These attributes, together with the values of determination and never given up, faith, hope, and love, are all paramount in our lives!! Above these however, are the wonderful blessings and grace of an Awesome and Almighty God!!! Amen.

As Head Strength & Conditioning Coach at the new 3PS center, I will bring my enthusiasm, methodologies, and my vast experience in strength & conditioning from attending numerous strength & conditioning conferences and seminars throughout the United States and Canada, as well as countless hours of study, certifications, and working with top coaches and athletes from leagues such as the NHL, MLB, NFL, CFL, and from United States and Canadian Olympic athletes


As a lifelong resident of the Blue Water Area and having trained many outstanding athletes in this area, I have always recognized the talent and untapped potential for greatness in our young athletes! This is the reason 3PS was born -- to provide a one-of-a-kind experience and training center – “Where Champions Are Built!!!”
