From Boronia in Victoria, Adam Heuskes played eight games for the 1991 Norwood under 17 premiership team.
In 1992 he played one game in the under 19s and 14 in the reserves. He also represented South Australia in the national under 17 championships (Teal Cup) held in Victoria and was selected in the All-Australian team at the end of the series.
At the end of 1993, Heuskes was selected by the Sydney Swans in the national draft.
After making his AFL debut in 1994, he played 49 games over the next three seasons. The utility was possibly best suited to a half-back flank.
In 1997 he moved to the Port Adelaide Power and played 37 games (1997-1998), winning All-Australian selection in his first season.
While still on Port's AFL list, Heuskes played seven games for the Redlegs in 1998, when not required by the Power.
In 1999 he was traded to the Brisbane Lions (39 games, 1999-2000).
Heuskes had a stint with Gepps Cross in the South Australian Amateur Football League, and also played 24 games for North Adelaide from 2004 to 2005.
