Coach Mark Bonneau is entering his third season coaching RI Magic AAU, but 

his hoop experience spans almost 30 years! His playing career started at 

Bristol High School in 1986 playing for the legendary Dom Raiola (A RIBCA 

Hall of Famer) and continued at Bridgewater State where he earned his 

Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education and played under New 
  England Basketball Hall of Fame coach Joe Farroba. It is no wonder that 

Mark started his coaching career immediately after college. He coached at 

three high schools in Massachusetts over a 12 year period at the Freshman 
  and JV levels. A majority of that time was spent coaching at Attleboro High 

School where Mark has been a Physical Education and Health teacher since 
  1998. Mark has also been the Varsity Golf Coach at Attleboro since 2001. He 

also coached baseball and softball for short stints over his career at 
Attleboro High. Mark went on to receive his Masters of Secondary Education 

from Fitchburg State. Mark, his wife Sara and their three boys have called 

Barrington home since 2002. Since moving to Barrington, Mark started the 

Barrington Youth Basketball Association which provides competitive travel 
  basketball to over 100 boys and girls throughout the year. Currently, Mark is 

also a member of the basketball coaching staff at Barrington High School. 

His decision to join the RI Magic staff was a simple one after watching his 
son and many players from Barrington flourish under the tutelage of Magic 
coaches. Mark’s life has been committed to helping young people develop 
the personal skills needed to be successful in life. He has chosen sports, 
specifically basketball, as his main tool to achieve this goal. Mark was 
mentored by many great coaches along the way and learned many valuable 
life lessons as a result. He is now extremely excited to pass along some of 
those lessons as a member of the RI Magic’s coaching staff.
