The New Zealand international (pictured) is currently with the Championship squad on their pre-season trip to Ibiza, as he aims to impress The Sky Blues with his abilities.
The former Napier City Rovers and Bradford City custodian has been on the lookout for a new club after League One side Walsall released him from his contract back in March.
With former Queens Park Rangers keeper Chris Day also on trial with the Midlands outfit, Paston will need to do his best to impress Coventry during his trial spell.
"The keepers looked comfortable," Adams said of Day and Paston to Coventry's official website. "They have worked hard in training.
"I haven't got my goalkeeping coach with me because he's behind looking after (new signing) Clayton Ince, but they've settled in well.
"They are both desperate to get a contract with us and we'll keep assessing it."
Adams, meanwhile, is continuing to assess the fitness of a former charge in defender Paul Watson.
The 30-year-old played under Adams at Fulham and Brighton & Hove Albion and it remains to be seen if Watson will have another chance to play for him at The Ricoh Arena.
"I don't need to assess Paul Watson - I know exactly what he can do," added Adams.
"He's been to every football club that I've been to as a manager other than Leicester City, so that tells you how much I have rated him.
"But he had a few injury problems last season, so a trial for Paul is not to assess his ability, it's to assess his fitness."
