Adam grew up in the New York soccer community. Like his brother Ben, he spent his formative years playing under now-FA Euro Club President, Joe Balsamo, during which time he was selected for the Olympic Development Program and represented the United States at the Danone Nations Cup in Paris, France. During his youth career, Adam had the opportunity to play in a host of international tournaments, competing against some of the world’s top youth teams including Ajax, Inter, AC Milan, Fluminense, and Flamengo. After the inception of the US Soccer Development Academy, Adam completed his youth career at Met Oval, before playing at the collegiate level for Wesleyan University in Connecticut.
In his senior career, Adam has played for FA Euro New York in each of its five seasons in the USL League Two, and holds the club record for appearances at the senior level. Prior to joining FA Euro, Adam played two seasons in the Premier Development League (PDL) with the Brooklyn Knights, under then-head-coach Joe Balsamo. Adam has traveled internationally on multiple occasions, including annual trips with FA Euro to Italy, during which he has played against professional teams, including Palermo, Perugia, and Foggia.
Adam has been coaching elite-level youth teams for over a decade and has spent the last five years overseeing FA Euro’s youth sector as the club’s Director of Youth Development. Adam is proud of the role he has played in creating a path for FA Euro youth players to graduate from the club’s academy and move directly into the First Team. Since 2018, Adam has been a coach at the New Jersey State Olympic Development Program and has received high praise from the US Federation as an up-and-coming star in youth soccer. A U.S.S.F. technical director who recently worked with Adam described him as one of the “most impressive” young coaches with whom she’s had the opportunity to work. Adam holds a USSF C License and is currently working toward his B License.
