Adam Cox's story

Melbourne Victory Academy strength and conditioning coach, Adam Cox, is focused on physical and tactical periodisation, youth football performance and talent identification in the Master of Sports Science (Football Performance).


“My interest in high-performance sport led me to choose Victoria University. VU provided a modern, flexible delivery of course content, which suited my work and family commitments.

VU has a strong reputation for sports research, course delivery and world-class facilities and we work closely with industry partners in elite sport.

The opportunity to gain practical work experience while completing my undergraduate studies was important, as I was eager to begin working in the field immediately.

Because of the opportunities and support I was given during my undergraduate degree, I chose to continue my postgraduate studies at VU. The options for work and research opportunities were too good to pass up.

I have formed strong personal and career relationships with lecturers, supervisors and other students who share my enthusiasm and passion for high-performance sport and research.”
