Victorian rugby league has received a significant vote of confidence with Melbourne-based Tony Adam appointed Australian School Boys coach.
Adam was a part of the Melbourne Storm coaching staff from 20009-2015.
He began his career as a development coach with the Club before moving into the Storm Academy and eventually working with the Under-20s as an assistant coach.
Adam now teaches at Victoria University Secondary College where he has spent the past three years.
This new appointment will see him travel to the Australian Schoolboys Carnival in July where he will select the squad.
“I was at the Club for seven years full time in a variety of roles,” Adam said.
“That gave me a good ground, great exposure to a high performance environment.”
“Obviously it was great to learn from Craig and his coaching with the first grade and a lot of the processes that all successful teams have.”
Adam will oversee a training camp in late September, where the young players will get to experience the same facilities at Royal Pines that are used by their Kangaroos heroes.
Following the camp Adam will coach the Australian Schoolboys on an eight-day tour of New Zealand.
