Jordan MacQuarrie works hard for NJTFC on the field and for his community off the field. MacQuarrie, who scored two goals in the first U23 game of the season, is a founder of Tech Academy Soccer in New Jersey. Today we talked to him on the success of Tech Academy Soccer:

How did you get the idea and how did things get started? Who has helped you along the way?

“Tech Academy was born out of a simple idea: bringing high quality, game related and affordable training to the entire soccer community. Cristina Estremera also owns the company. She played and coached for the women’s soccer team at Rutgers Newark and currently plays in the UWS.”

What do you do on a daily basis with Tech Academy?

“We specialise in technical work and position specific training. We wanted to really focus in on how to train effectively to really impact a players game day performance. We coach some of the top youth talent in NJ and also work with adults, men and women who play at college, semi pro and pro level. A typical day we have around 3/4 sessions working with individuals/small groups and 2-3 sessions working with clubs doing the technical training. We offer select teams in the winter and summer to train and compete in tournaments. We are club neutral and have good partnerships with teams at all levels. We try to help players and parents with decisions on where to tryout and what would be a good fit for the player.”

With the success of the Academy also came social media popularity. The Academy has over six thousand followers on Instagram and over 96 thousand followers on TikTok, with 1.5 million likes.

How did you come to have such a big following on Instagram and Tiktok?

“We post clips of our session, tutorials and general soccer stuff on social media and have been able to grow our following to over 100k across platforms!”
