What is FC Berna?

FC Berna is a non-profit soccer club in New Jersey offering youth premier, travel, and recreational programs to players aged 4 -18 years with total enrollment of approximately 1,000 players. Incorporated in 1974 and established as a result of the merger of Somerset Hills Soccer Club and Ridge Mavericks Soccer Club, FC Berna combines decades of soccer tradition and expertise into a club that offers a program for everyone. FC Berna has a mission to provide challenging and fun soccer programs to all children within the area, allowing every player to develop their abilities to the fullest.  This is accomplished by utilizing  a soccer philosophy and curriculum, delivered by outstanding trainers, that is developmental and inclusive for all kids in every program.

FC Berna is the soccer club of choice for players in Basking Ridge, Bernards Township, Bernardsville, Martinsville, Bedminster, Far Hills and Peapack-Gladstone. FC Berna also attracts players from surrounding areas including Warren, Watchung, Harding, Mendham, Long Hill, Berkeley Heights, Annandale, Tewksbury and Bridgewater, among many others.

We offer professional coaching for every program, employing top caliber trainers, with a Director of Coaching overseeing the trainers and all aspects of the soccer curriculum. FC Berna provides the unique opportunity to explore soccer at any level, while staying within the same club and community. This allows players to enjoy athletic experiences at any level desired, learning life lessons and making memories with teammates, friends, neighbors and classmates, and eliminates the need to continually "club shop".
