At The Performance Academy, we will provide comprehensive, cutting-edge training for athletes of all ability levels. In a safe, inspiring, and relentlessly positive environment, we will provide the techniques, tools, and motivation to maximize athletic performance. We are committed to developing the physical and mental attributes that will lead to success, with a specific focus on instilling core values of hard work, dedication, and self-discipline.
Our staff is made up of trained professionals who have worked with professional, collegiate, high school and young athletes. Our head sports performance coach Bill Burniston also works with the Carolina Hurricanes as assistant strength coach. Our baseball instructors have played collegiately with NC State University, High Point University, and professionally with the San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics.
When asked why they support the Stampede Club, the response was that the program does so much for the scholar athletes of middle creek high school. TPA wants to be a part of a group that helps grow a program with such highly talented athletic teams and it is something that we are very proud to be a part of and look forward to continued success with the Middle Creek.
An interesting fact about TPA is our director of sports performance, Bill Burniston, has traveled as the strength coach with USA Collegiate national team to Cuba this past year. We have also had over 100 college and professional athletes come here to train in their respective off-seasons in our 5 years of existence.
The athletes that we are able to work with everyday are those who inspire our organization. We love to see the gains that they make throughout the year and then put them to test in their seasons and achieve their goals.
Our instructors have played baseball and football at the collegiate level. Kyle Wilson, General Manager played baseball at NC State and for the San Francisco Giants. Ryan Mathews played baseball at NC State and professionally with the Oakland Athletics organization. Andrew Ciencin and Danny Healey also played baseball at NC State and Jordan Foster played baseball at High Point University.
