FREE JACKS ACADEMY
REGIONAL TRAINING GROUPS
The Free Jacks Academy includes 13 Regional Training Groups (RTGs) to better connect athletes and coaches at the local level through a series of tracking days, clinics, 365 virtual skill and fitness programming, and identification opportunities to play into the Junior Jacks Academy squads or the Independents Senior Development squads.
Players of all skill levels will be entered into the Free Jack’s Academy Pathway and have the opportunity to grow their game, play in select-side competitions and learn what it takes to play at higher levels. RTGs allow players to be entered into the pathway, which can lead to playing on the Independents or Junior Jacks.
Independents & Junior Jacks
The New England Independents are a U23 select-side that compete in nation wide competitions during a two month block every year. Players are selected for the Independents through both Regional Training Groups and specific Independents try-outs.
The New England Junior Jacks are the official U16-U20 development squad. Both boys and girls sides participate in MLR All-Star competitions annually as well as frequent training sessions.
