Jason Capps enters his fifth season on the Bridgewater College women's soccer coaching staff as an assistant coach. He will again be involved in all aspects of the program.
Capps previously served as a volunteer assistant with the women's soccer team at Middle Tennessee State University where he was a member of the 2004 Sun Belt Conference championship coaching staff. He also assisted a local high school team while in Tennessee and in more than 14 years of coaching has coached club teams in Maryland, North Carolina and Tennessee, as well as his home state of Virginia.
Capps is currently the head coach of the girls' varsity soccer team at Eastern Mennonite High School. In three seasons leading the Flames, Capps has compiled a record of 39-10-1. While his 2011 campaign ended in double-overtime in the VISAA Division II State Quarterfinal, Capps finished the season with a record of 13-3 and led his team to an undefeated season (11-0) in the Blue Ridge Conference. He guided the Flames to a third straight Blue Ridge Conference Championship while only allowing two goals in conference play, giving up zero goals in the conference tournament. His tenure has sparked many milestones including maintaining a top three VISAA Division II state ranking each season, posting a 31-2 record in conference play, outscoring opponents 154-31, and winning three consecutive BRC Championships. Capps also led his team to a victory over a higher division rival for the first time in the school's history and has produced the most VISAA All-State girls' soccer players in EMHS history.
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 during World Cup 2010.
Capps received his Bachelor of Arts in English, with a minor in religious studies, from MTSU in 2008.
He holds a USSF National D license.
Capps resides in Harrisonburg with his wife, Lara.
