More About Coach Vinnie

I have 10 years of high school track and field experience. In that time I've served as the horizontal jumps coach and later as the head coach. I've coached school record holders in triple jump, 4x100, 300h, 4x400, and the 800. I've taken my athletes to two of the biggest meets in the states in the Penn relays and the Oregon relays. Inspiring kids to do more than they thought possible is what I do best. Track is my passion. I also have my level 1 certification though USATF. What will prove my abilities the most is a file that contains the top 15 performances in every event in school history at the school that employed me. This file will let you see how much the program improved under my supervision.

I wasn't a great athlete. I did a few sports in high school and that is as far as my athletic experience goes. However, you aren't hiring me to be an athlete. I love sports and I've been coaching or training in some form since I was 16. I've been coaching track since I was 19.

Everything I do there's a reason for. If at any point I can't tell you why you're doing something you don't have to do it. Too many coaches live in a world where the word "why" is a bad thing, but in my paradigm "why" is a great thing. It gives the athlete or student the chance and opportunity to learn what's going on and how to better assess if what they're doing is productive. It also makes my program more inclusive because what the athlete thinks, feels, and wants matters.
As far the actual training I have two primary objectives. First, to keep my athletes healthy, because the most important ability is availability. Second, I want to make my athlete as fast as possible. There's a lie that has somehow become said as a fact and that is that speed cannot be taught. Speed can be taught and any coach that tells you differently is living in the past. Speed is the most important factor in every running event from the marathon to the 100 meter. From proper mechanics to actual workouts to get a physiological response. Speed can be taught.

Client Reviews

Coach Brascia is really nice and professional. My son enjoyed his session!

Coach Vinnie is very knowledgeable and great to work with. Ethan is very comfortable working with him. My son learned a lot of new things. He was quite sore after his workout with Coach Vinnie, that really proves that his workout is effective! Thanks Coach!

Coach Vinnie was beyond what I was hoping for in a coach! He is extremely knowledgeable, patient and personable -- he made my son laugh many times, all while teaching him new things and providing a good workout. He went over fundamentals, taught us several new things and provided a structured lesson -- just the right amount of fun and intensity! I really appreciated the knowledge he shared besides just the general training kind of things and he was easily accessible for questions I had after the lesson. Definitely booking again!

I have had the opportunity to work with Coach Brascia over the last 8 years. He has proven himself to be an excellent coach with an ability to motivate young people. He has remained current in the most up to date techniques and trends in track and field and sports performance training overall by attending numerous clinics and consulting with world class coaches on a regular basis. He modifies these techniques to meet the specific needs of his athletes to ensure that they exceed their goals, and approach their maximum potential. What is most impressive is his ability to connect with student athletes and develop a positive relationship. He has had success with both elite and developing athletes by improving their on field and in classroom performance. He works with them to develop clear short term goals along with a long term plan. Any young person who has the opportunity to work with Vinnie Brascia will benefit immensely. If my children choose to pursue athletics in the future, I hope they will have Vinnie as their coach or trainer.
