Adams Poised For Pros
dominic adams

On a brisk fall Friday night in Hamden, Conn., as the evening fog blankets the Quinnipiac University soccer field. Off in the distance the sound of a soccer ball being kicked catches the attention of anyone who walks by.

It’s a Friday night at a university full of 7,000 college kids. Training for anything at this hour truly might be the last thing on these student’s minds which is why former Quinnipiac University standout Dominic Adams is one of TOG’s finest. 

On any given night, you can find Adams on the pitch in Hamden running sprints, doing drills, and perfecting his game. If you can’t find him on the field, just walk about 100 yards to the weight room, you’ll find him there.

In talking with professional scouts and people already at “the next level,” one thing they never stop searching for is speed. As the co-founder of TOG Athlete & Fitness I’ve seen my fair share of fast athletes and Adams ranks right up there with the fastest players I’ve ever had the opportunity to watch.

Already armed with a TOG approved workout regimen, Adams is well on his way to a successful professional career.

Dominic Adams signs with Icelandic Premier League club, ÍBV Vestmannaeyjar

Former T&T U-17 midfielder, Dominic Adams, signs with ÍBV Vestmannaeyjar of the Icelandic Premier League
bahamaislandsinfo.com


Former Grand Bahama soccer player Dominic Adams has just signed a professional contract with ÍBV Vestmannaeyjar, a professional football club over in Iceland.

Adams, a 25-year old outside midfielder originally from Trinidad & Tobago, inked a two-year deal with IBV, an Icelandic club which is located in Vestmannaeyjar off the south coast of Iceland. IBV is a long-standing member of the Icelandic Premier League; the top soccer division in the country and consists of 12 professional franchises. IBV has three Icelandic Championship Titles (1979, 1997, and 1998) and four Icelandic Cups (1968, 1972, 1981, and 1998).

Dominic made his name on Grand Bahama at Freeport Rugby Football Club where he excelled in midfield, playing in the adult league from the early age of 14. He led the Brita Red Bulls to the League title as well as picking up numerous individual awards. Dominic’s skills also came to the attention of the various coaches during the annual English Premier League Summer Soccer Camp. As a result of his performances in the summer he spent time attending prestigious academies in England such as Wolverhampton Wanderers, Birmingham City and Watford. Adams was also a member of the Trinidad and Tobago U-17 National Team before attending college.

In 2007, Dominic went to the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma (NAIA)  He played there for one year before his talents were spotted once more and in 2008, he got selected to play for the Colorado Rapids U-23 and was also offered numerous scholarships from NCAA division 1 schools.  Dominic chose to attend Quinnipiac, a prestigious University with both an excellent reputation academically and on the soccer field.  Dominic played 3 years at Quinnipiac University, working with high level coaches such as Chris Bart-Williams and Shaka Hislop, both former professional footballers in the English Premier League.

His former coach Mark Hardy expressed an enormous pride at his former youth player noting that it gives you a wonderful feeling to see one of your players progress so far. "I still remember seeing Dom as a scrawny 13/14 year old playing in the school league, recalls Hardy.  "Even though he hardly touched the ball or influenced the game it was obvious that he had more quality than most players on the field even though he was 3 -4 years younger than the rest of the players. He is a  role model to  all players on the island, indeed all students, as it indicates how your career can progress from such humble beginnings. Dom has taken advantage and excelled at each level he has played and hence has continued to  progress."

Hardy joked that he had always advised his youngsters that they should always strive for a college scholarship rather than ‘dream' of playing professional in Europe. “Yet again however Dominic has raised the bar for others to follow. Dom was the most successful youngster to come through the club’s youth programme and obtained an excellent NCAA Division 1 scholarship after having been scouted in tournaments. Now he is paving the way for our players to turn pro!"

Dominic graduated with a degree in 2012 in Health sciences but still had further ambitions on the soccer field which have led to this recent event.  After college, he tried out for a full time training program called Bridges FC which trains college players and prepares them for a career in Europe, mainly Scandinavia.  Having made two trips to Europe with the team and playing against professional European teams such as Heerenveen SC, Utrecht FC and Vitesse Arnhem; Dom had numerous professional trial before ultimately signing with IBV.

Given the recent success of players from the Scandinavian countries in the English Premier League such as Ole Solksjaer, Eidur Gudjohnsen and Hermann Hreidarsson, given Dominic’s determination, who would bet on there not being further chapters to this story.

Dominic would like to express his thanks to all those on the island who contributed to his success including all those at Freeport Rugby Football Club and their youth soccer programme, especially coach Mark, coach Husseyin, coach Scott, coach Brad and Tony Johns.

Jonathan Glenn also ÍBV Vestmannaeyjar

Jacksonville Combine duo sign with IBV in Iceland
By Daniel Rouse (axsoccertours.com)


AX are proud to announce that two Jacksonville Combine players, free-scoring Jonathan Glenn and midfielder Dominic Adams, have signed their first ever professional contracts with Icelandic Premier League side IB Vestmannaeyjar.

IBV manager Siggi Eyjolfsson worked with Director Paul Taylor at Walsall in England, and had no hesitation in trusting Taylor and his staff to watch players for him at the AX winter combines and subsequently send the best on trial with his squad. Glenn and Adams caught the eye of AX Staff at their Jacksonville Combine and were promptly sent to the Icelandic outfit.

Jonathan Glenn moved from his native Trinidad and Tobago to be recruited to Saint Leo University, where he showcased his goalscoring talents in the PDL with the Panama City Pirates and Vermont Voltage. He graduated college as the fifth all-time leading scorer with an irrepressible 41 goals in 57 games, and then moved onto NPSL’s Jacksonville United where he was named in the all-conference team of the year for the 2013 campaign.

Dominic Adams is a fellow Trinibagonian native, and gained a scholarship to the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma (USAO) where he was was tipped as one of the finest players from the islands for years. From Oklahoma he took in stints at Quinnipiac University, the Professional Development League’s Vermont Voltage and Colorado Rapids, but at the age of 25 he had still not played professionally. After an impressive showing at the Jacksonville combine, however, AX agency staff offered him a breakthrough by getting him a trial at IBV. It is of no surprise to AX that these two talented players have both earned their first professional deals after impressing on trial.

Glen and Adams will join one of the most recognizable teams in Icelandic soccer and a great place to start their careers. Manchester United manager David Moyes began his playing career with the club; Hermann Hriedarsson, who captained clubs in the English Premier League as well as the Icelandic national team, started and finished his playing days there; former English international goalkeeper David James also finished his final games of professional soccer there.

Following the great success of the last Jacksonville combine, we will hold another Combine from March 30-31-April 1st, 2014, more details can be found at the following link: 2014 Pro Soccer Combines.

Both of them are getting significant playing time. From what I can tell, fans were getting on Glenn's case, but he has scored about 3 goals recently, so he's earned a reprieve.

He is 25...

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
