Jason Capps enters his seventh season on the Bridgewater College women's soccer coaching staff as an assistant coach.
Capps helped lead the Eagles to their first ODAC championship game in 2012 and a trip to the conference semifinals in 2013. He once again will be involved in all aspects of the program.
Coach Capps previously served on staff as a volunteer assistant coach for the women's soccer team at Middle Tennessee State University where he was a member of the 2004 Sun Belt Conference Champions. He also assisted a local high school team while residing in Tennessee and in over 16 years of coaching has coached club teams in Maryland, North Carolina, and Tennessee, as well as his home state of Virginia.
Capps recently served as the head coach of the girls varsity soccer team at Eastern Mennonite School. In six seasons leading the Flames, Capps led the team to three straight trips to the state championship game. In 2013, his Flames earned the program's first ever Virginia Independent Schools state championship while remaining unbeaten in VISAA league play. Capps compiled a 19-1-2 record in each of 2012 and 2013 seasons. His 2012 team set a new school record for wins in a season, a mark that was tied by the 2013 team. His 2014 squad lost in the state championship game.
In the summer of 2010, Capps ventured to South Africa where he participated in "Ignite the Flame," a mission based tour that consisted of leading soccer clinics for children displaced from school during World Cup 2010.
Capps received his Bachelor of Arts in English, with a minor in Religious Studies, from Middle Tennessee State University in 2008 and is currently pursuing a graduate degree at James Madison University. He holds a United States Soccer Federation National D license.
Capps resides in Bridgewater with his wife, Lara.
