Garfield Heights born and bred, Adam grew up with a fondness for the ice. Playing his high school years for Garfield Heights led him to play Juniors for the Cleveland Junior Lumberjacks (CHSL). Years later, in 2010, he returned to coach the Garfield Heights Muny League for the Peewees, assisting with the Mites and up until 2015 coached the Bantams. In between those seasons, Adam also worked as a private instructor and coached for the Squirts and Peewees for the Ohio Hockey Academy. In 2015/16 - 16/17, he coached the 16U Cleveland Lumberjacks. Adam plans to not only teach the skills and fundamentals of the game but excel the kids to the next level.
