Juan Mascaro

Juan Mascaro was named head women’s soccer coach in the spring of 2016 after current head coach Shigeyoshi Shinohara was promoted to head men’s soccer coach.

Mascaro takes over the women’s program after serving as the head men’s soccer coach from 2007-13, where his teams finished a combined 24-94-5 overall and 11-38-0 in league bouts.

Following a year off from coaching for the 2014-15 season, Mascaro returned to the pitch for the 2015-16 year as a goalkeeper coach under head women’s soccer coach Shigeyoshi Shinohara. That year under Mascaro’s instruction, Tornados goaltender Jocelyn Springer finished as one of the top net minders in the South Atlantic Conference, ending the year with 81 saves and a 1.32 goals against average. Springer’s 81 saves finished top-five in the SAC, while her four wins and three shutouts achieved top-10 honors.

Prior to Brevard, Mascaro was an assistant coach with the Campbell University women’s soccer program. He trained the goalkeepers, served as recruiting coordinator, and monitored academic success. He was also an assistant men’s soccer coach for the University of Central Florida for five seasons, helping lead the Golden Knights to an Atlantic Sun championship and a national ranking that peaked at No. 13.

A native of El Salvador, Mascaro earned his undergraduate degree in Business Administration in 1997 and his Master of Arts in Applied Economics in 1999 from the University of Central Florida.
