Ruben Resendes


Bulldogs Soccer Academy Owner & Director


Resendes enters his second season as assistant men’s soccer coach at The University of Vermont (NCAA Division I, America East) in 2018. Last season, Resendes helped the Catamounts capture the program’s third America East regular season crown and first since 2012.


Resendes comes to Burlington after spending the previous six seasons with the New England Revolution Academy, most recently serving as the U23 head coach and a Revs Youth Team head coach, prior to accepting the 1st assistant position at UVM. During his tenure with the Revolution Academy, he also served as the Regional Development School Coordinator, where he focused on curriculum and player development. In 2008, Resendes played for the Revolution Academy’s inaugural team. He was the first Revolution Academy graduate to return to the program as a coach.


In 2015 & 2016, Resendes served as the Head Men’s Soccer Coach at Dean College. He helped lead the Bulldogs to their most successful stretch in program history with a 33-3-1 (.917) record. In 2016, he guided Dean to an 17-2-0 overall record and earned an invitation to the USCAA National Tournament. The 2016 squad set the program record in total wins (17), consecutive wins (11), goals scored (106), and fewest goals allowed (5). A year earlier, the Bulldogs finished the season nationally ranked at 16-1-0 and Resendes was recognized with the NJCAA All-New England Coach of the Year award.


Before becoming the head coach at Dean, Resendes returned to his alma mater, Southern New Hampshire University, as an assistant coach in 2014. While at SNHU, Resendes saw the Penmen finish the season with a 17-1-2 record. In 2013, he served as associate head coach at Emmanuel where he helped the Saints to a program-best 5-4-0 conference record.


Resendes played collegiately as a midfielder at Southern New Hampshire from 2009-12, including three of Dow’s four seasons as an assistant coach with the Penmen. At SNHU, Resendes was a four-year starter and played in four NCAA tournaments. He was a three-time NSCAA All-Region selection and he earned NSCAA All-America honors as a senior. He was named to the Northeast-10 All-Conference Team in each of his four seasons and was named Northeast-10 Rookie of the Year as a freshman in 2009.


Following his successful career with the Penmen, Resendes played professionally for Tindastoll FC of Iceland’s Úrvalsdeild.
