The Cape Express Soccer Club was founded in 1982 in an effort to develop youth soccer in Cape May County, New Jersey. The club strives to develop physical, mental and emotional growth; self and community pride; teach sportsmanship and teamwork and provide an opportunity for the players to achieve the highest level of individual and team soccer development they are able to achieve.
The club has grown in size and numbers and now draws players from throughout Cape May County, as well as neighboring counties.
The club provides a staff of professional soccer trainers - educated in their craft and subject to state-mandated background checks and the KidSafe Program® - to work with, educate, and mentor all of our players.
Open tryouts are held each year in late May or early June. See club calendar for information.
The Club currently has three programs. The youth program includes boys and girls teams ages U-8 through U-14. The varsity program includes boys and girls teams ages U-15 through U-18. The Caperoos program is a free, non-competitive fun time for Kindergarten and 1st grade age boys and girls.
Cape Express Soccer Club boys teams compete in the South Jersey Soccer League (SJSL) and Mid-Atlantic Premier Soccer League (MAPS). Girls teams compete in the South Jersey Girls Soccer League (SJGSL) and Jersey Area Girls Soccer (JAGS). Teams hold twice weekly training sessions at the Clarence Davies Sports Complex in Cape May Court House, NJ. Home games are played at various fields throughout the county, including Cape May Courthouse, Stone Harbor, & Del Haven.
The Cape Express Soccer Club hosts the annual George Pratt Memorial Soccer Tournament held every Columbus Day Weekend. This tournament has grown from an inaugural event of 32 teams in 1993 to approximately 300 U-8 to U-14 boys and girls teams from all over the mid-atlantic region.
The Cape Express Soccer Club also runs the Beach Blast Soccer Tournament on the beaches of Wildwood, NJ. The Beach Blast is held annually on the weekend before the 4th of July holiday weekend. The tournament started with 70 5v5 barefooted boys and girls teams in 2003 and in 2014 had 1,000 teams competing. Due to its popularity, we were forced to add a second annual event called MORE Beach Blast which is held in mid-July.
