Our Story

CAPS Premier Soccer was created to offer advanced, competitive "premier level" soccer to players in Central New Jersey.  We focus on long-term player development, offering training 3 days per week during the season with competitive level play in EDP.  Our players advance their skills through training sessions that include speed and agility, goalkeeping and technical development. We have players currently participating in ODP and EDP development programs. This commitment to player development will continue to be a hallmark of CAPS.

CAPS was created with sustained success in mind.  To sustain that success at such an elite level is a symbol of excellence, a characteristic that we strive for everyday in our program.

The History of Caps in Soccer

In British sport, a cap is a metaphorical term for a player's appearance in a game at international level. The term dates from the practice in the United Kingdom of awarding a cap to every player in an international match of association football. In the early days of football, the concept of each team wearing a set of matching shirts had not been universally adopted, so each side would distinguish itself from the other by wearing a specific sort of cap.

Today the term "cap" for an international appearance has been retained as an indicator of the number of occasions on which a sportsperson has represented a team in a particular sport. Thus, a "cap" is awarded for each game played and so a player who has played x games, for the team, is said to have been capped x times or have won x caps.
