Graduated from Henley High School in 2010. Polec is an outside midfielder who, prior to being drafted, played senior football with Woodville West Torrens and was a key player in their 2010 finals series. Woodville-West Torrens coach Michael Godden described Polec as being as good a junior as I’ve seen come through the system and praised him for his skill, composure and work ethic.
Jared was selected with the Brisbane Lion’s first selection (pick 5 overall) in the 2010 national draft. In his first three seasons at Brisbane, he played in sixteen games. In September 2013, Polec requested a trade to a Port Adelaide. Polec officially joined Port Adelaide in October 2013, he played 90 games for Port Adelaide between 2014-2018. In 2019 Polec joined North Melbourne through the Trade period, Polec proved an astute signing to a side needing outside run and penetrating kicking. The number 13 played in every game, and led the Roos for metres gained and total kicks.
