“On behalf of the Jersey City Capitals Youth Hockey organization, I just wanted to let all your readers know about our family oriented club, located just a mile or so from Hoboken at Pershing Field in Jersey City Heights. Dozens of Hoboken residents are involved with the Capitals as players, coaches, and referees. The Capitals field teams comprised of kids aged six through Middle School, that compete in the New Jersey Youth Hockey League against teams from surrounding communities. We would like to invite everyone to come up to see our games, which are played Saturday and Sunday mornings from 8:00 am until 11:00 am at Pershing. For a copy of our schedule and times for the individual teams check out WWW.JCCAPS.COM,

The Capitals also run a Learn to Skate Clinic from November 15th through February 14th on Saturday and Sunday mornings. This is where my two sons first learned to skate at age 4. I can say without a doubt that it is one of the great values in youth sports in the area. It is run by coaches from the Capitals, as well as players from nearby High Schools like St. Peter’s Prep. The cost is $225 (no, that isn’t a misprint). Additional information can be found on our website.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact one of the Capitals board members at the numbers found on the website. As an aside, Pershing is also home to an adult group that plays on Tuesday and Thursday evenings called the Ripblades.

Thanks in advance, and I hope to see everyone at the rink this winter!”

Great jerseys!


As we pass the mid point of the season and head down the playoff stretch, the Capitals are having great seasons at all levels of play. The Mites (8 and under), led by Hobokenites Blake Jacey and Tyler Kinney, remain undefeated. The Squirts (9 and 10 yr olds), featuring forwards Thomas Jandora, Patrick Keenan, and Evan Lichman, as well as blue-liner Cristiano Kusner, sport a stellar 17-3 mark. The first place PeeWees (11-12 yr olds) are led by defensemen Riley Conlin and Kurt Motyka and wings Christopher Jandora and Max Wilkins. Goalie Max Carty is a perfect 8-0 between the pipes.

As a reminder, games are Saturday and Sunday mornings at 7:45 and 9:00 am. They are held at Pershing Field (about a mile from downtowm Hoboken)in Jersey City Heights and, of course, are free. Come on out and support your neighbors as they try and keep up their fire on ice.


It was a wonderful kick-off weekend for the Capitals up at Pershing Field, with the teams going 3-0-1 and a bunch of new fans in attendance (it is free, needless to say). Hobokenite Evan Lichman had a weekend hat trick for the Squirts, and net minder Max Carty chipped in with a shutout for the PeeWees.

As a reminder, the clinic begins next week. If you are on the fence, come on up and meet the coaches and watch them in action with the kids. There is a limited supply of new and gently used equipment for those who need it. It is available on a first-come, first-served basis.


Good Luck Boys! 😀
