Boys' Soccer



Varsity Team:

Boys' Varsity Soccer at Wardlaw-Hartridge has been consistently recognized as an overachieving program that competes hard against all opponents.

Under the direction of Head Coach, Jason Montesinos,
the Rams style of play combines patient, controlled ball possession with a strong work ethic pursuing the ball and keeping the ball. The Rams soccer team entered the Greater Middlesex Conference in 2010 and since then have been a force to be reckoned with. 

Over the last 12 seasons, the boys' varsity soccer team has come away with 3 division championships (2010, 2011, and 2014).  Over that time, they have competed in both the Blue and Gold Divisions, looking for bigger schools to give them appropriate competition.  

In 2019, the team went on a historic run in the state tournament. After impressive victories over prep rivals Ranney and Rutgers Prep, the Rams reached final of the South Jersey, Non-Public B NJSIAA Tournament losing to perennial champion, Moorestown Friends.

Coaching Philosophy:

  • Team First
    Every action and decision made by coaches and players will prioritize team. When the teammate next to you looks like he/she is about to quit, don’t let him/her. In addition to coaches, players should inspire one another. You, as a coach, have done your job well when the players are able to motivate/guide one another. This environment directly reflects the values of the coach and club. Players should criticize one another constructively. They should hold each other accountable. We are mentoring young adults to think for themselves. Most importantly, they should lead one another.


  • Work Hard
    We work hard for every goal we want to achieve. Every session and game is played with integrity and hard work. Any time we are on the pitch, our hard work is a representation of the club and what we stand for.

  • Be Attentive
    Players must pay attention to all details addressed in trainings and games. In order to be as prepared as possible, we must focus on every direction.


  • Do Your Job
    Execute the specific tasks presented by the coach. Execute on the things that you as an individual player do well. Make a sincere effort to improve on that things that you do not do well.


JV Team:

The JV program practices alongside the varsity. The Junior Varsity programs serves as both a feeder program to develop future varsity players and give opportunities to more players to compete as a high school soccer player.  

Boys soccer is proud to have had 11 student-athletes further their soccer career since 2012 and compete as NCAA college soccer players.

Jason assumed control of the Rams Boys’ Soccer program between the 2017 and 2018 seasons.  He brought with him expertise, energy, and a love of the sport, which led to 10 wins and 2ndplace finish in the GMC Gold Division in the Rams’ 1st season under his leadership.   In his 2nd season, W+H advanced to the Non-Public B South Group Finals, the deepest run in the state playoffs by any Wardlaw+Hartridge team since joining the NJSIAA in 2010.  

Growing up in Middlesex County, in a soccer-friendly family, Jason appears to have been destined for this job.   Starting his coaching with the NJ Rovers (under NJ Hall of Fame coach Spencer Rockman) from 2004-08, Jason’s thirst for soccer knowledge continued to grow as he matured.  He has obtained the U.S. Soccer Federation’s D, E, and F licenses, as well as the National Diploma and the Goalkeeping (Level 2) Diploma offered by the National Soccer Coaches Association.

Jason formed the Valencia Soccer Academy in 2012, where he remains the Coaching Director.  VSA has grown to include 13 teams, including recent State Cup finalists and one State Cup Champion.   Montesinos has also worked as the Head Trainer for the Edison United Soccer Association (2012-16), and the Coaching Director of the Colonia Youth Soccer Association (2015-present).   Prior to being named the Varsity Head Coach at W+H, he served as the JV Head Coach and Technical Trainer for St. Joseph’s HS in Metuchen.    

In Winter 2019-20, Jason took over the reins of the Middle School Boys’ Gold Basketball team and proved that his ability to teach and motivate young people is not restricted to the soccer field.
