DIVIDE AND CONQUER
Stadium Performance functions on a philosophy of speed development that is achieved through high-tempo plyometric and single leg strength training. After a decade as an Athletic Trainer, Rehabilitation Specialist, and Strength Coach at Boston College, the New England Patriots, Los Angeles Kings, Boston Breakers, and Boston Cannons, Joe trained and witnessed some of the best players in the world.
Joe leads and programs all private training sessions at Stadium Performance. Our goal is migrate athletes into the group setting as quickly and safely as possible. If private sessions are your preference however, you will build a strong relationship with joe. It is his belief that athletes should not have to play at the professional level to receive elite strength training, enhanced speed development, and life-changing results.
Stemming from a dream of literally leveling the playing field and affording all athletes the ultimate recipe for prolonged success, Joe opened Stadium Performance Strength and Conditioning Center. Athletes seek Joe’s expertise with one primary objective in mind; to get faster. At SP, athletes train fast, play fast, and stay fast.

Tracy has played professional lacrosse since graduating from UNC, including two seasons with Athletes Unlimited and three years with the WPLL Pride in the Women’s Professional Lacrosse League.

After redshirting the 2014 season due to injury, Tracy came back in 2015 and recorded 38 goals, five assists and 44 draw controls.
In 2016, Sammy helped the Tar Heels to their second national title in four years, once again defeating Maryland for the trophy. That same year she was the only Tar Heel to score a goal in every game, including 15 multi-goal games. Tracy smashed the previous school record of 75 draw controls in a season with 108, before breaking her own record again as a senior with 145 draw controls during the 2017 season. She also set a UNC individual game record 14 draw controls in 2016.
