Sarota was named National Youth League Player of the Year for 2008-2009. As a result of his solid performances for the Brisbane Roar youth team, he was rewarded with a first team contract prior to the 2009-10 A-League season. On 2 November 2008 he made his A-League debut for the Brisbane Roar against the Newcastle Jets.
On 2 April 2010, along with fellow Roar players, Michael Zullo and Tommy Oar, Sarota joined Dutch side Utrecht on a three-year deal, in a collective transfer deal rumoured to be worth in excess of A$1.8 million. On 22 July 2010, Adam made his Utrecht debut coming on in the 70th minute of their away draw to Tirana in the UEFA Europa League.
On 27 August 2010, it was reported Sarota had been invited to a training camp by the Polish Football Association. Sarota’s father, Tony, emigrated to Australia from Poland but said that whilst Poland was a possibility, the Socceroos were Sarota's preferred option.
Sarota received his first Socceroos call up by coach Holger Osieck for a friendly match against Germany played on 27 March 2011. He made his international debut for Australia in August 2011, coming on as a substitute for FC Utrecht team-mate Michael Zullo in a win over Wales.
