The deck will be built on top of the 2 sprinkler heads so I want to make sure it never leaks once it's capped.

The simple way is just unscrew the head and put a threaded cap on the riser. If you don't mind doing a little work, you can dig up the source pipe and cut out the sprinkler with the fitting and patch the pipe back together either by gluing it together with couplings or by using a compression fitting. Those are your options.

how to cap a sprinker head?
