  • Soccer Academy Coach

    Marcus

    As someone who has lived and breathed soccer for his whole life, Coach DiBernardo brings an unbridled passion for the game to Monroe’s men’s soccer team— a trait that has fueled his extensive winning record.

    Over the past seven years, Coach DiBernardo has led the Mustangs to an impressive 91-15-8 record. The Mustangs have won four Region XV championships (2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014) and three District Titles (2010, 2011 and 2014), appeared in three National Tournaments, including two National Finals, and produced numerous All-Americans with Coach DiBernardo at the helm. The Mustangs have been ranked in the National Top Twenty for the past five years, and earned the number one ranking in 2011.  The program has sent over 60 student-athletes on scholarships to NCAA schools such as the University of Connecticut, Syracuse University, CSU Bakersfield, Creighton University, SUNY Albany, Grand Canyon University and many more.  The program has also turned out many excellent professional players, and is expected to continue doing so in the future.
     
    Coach DiBernardo began his coaching career as a teenager, coaching in the local soccer club that his father had founded.  He later moved on to a successful playing and coaching career at Central Connecticut State University, a member of NCAA Division I and the Northeast Conference. After his time at CCSU, Coach DiBernardo led numerous high school and club teams to earn titles throughout Connecticut and New York.  He holds a United States Soccer Federation Coaches License, NSCAA National, Advanced and Premier Diplomas, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education with a minor in Athletic Coaching.
     
    Coach DiBernardo’s view on the game is simple: “Soccer is like a great orchestra; in order to make beautiful music, it must be a completely synchronized effort from the entire group. The players that make up the group must understand that the team is the priority, and not the individual."
