Meet our 2022/2023 Coaches!

Adam Ring, 11U: Adam currently manages our 10U team which has achieved two tournament championships, a 2nd place finish, and three semi-final appearances in their first season. We’re excited Adam will be moving with his team to 11U for 2022-2023.  Prior to joining Warren Wave, Adam coached his previous travel fastpitch team, Adrenaline, for 5+ years from 14U-18U.  

Adam’s top priorities are developing his players to maximize their full potential both on and off the field. He prides himself on cultivating strong team chemistry, his dedication to his players, and his passion to compete in the game of fastpitch.

Enrico Asidao, 12U:  Coaching experience - 7 years of diverse coaching experience. WTGS All-Star Manager x 2 years, WTGS Manager x 2 years, WTGS Coach x 3 years, GYB Assistant Coach x 1 year, Grayslake Pride 12U Manager x 1 year, and Warren Wave 12U/14U/16U Assistant Coach x 4 years.

Personal Highlight - Married 21 years, 4 daughters, US Navy Veteran and Certified Master Training Specialist, and 14 years (7 years in management) at Abbott Laboratories Cardiac Electrophysiology Division.

Philosophy - I believe that the 11U/12U-level is the lifeblood of any travel softball organization. This age group must be coached and developed in an environment and in a manner that will set each player/family on a trajectory that will prepare them to compete at the exposure/showcase-level of fastpitch softball. It is an honor and privilege to manage, lead, and cultivate at this level of the program, and the coaching staff that I have assembled will demonstrate this realization and appreciation consistently.

Goals - 

1. To deliver a travel softball experience that will be fondly remembered and appreciated as players/families move on to 13U/14U and beyond.

2. To effectively and deliberately prepare players/families for what is expected and coveted by Managers at the 14U/16U/18U Exposure-level.

3. To leverage a myriad of relationships and resources to ensure each player/family and the coaching staff understands “the why” behind each and every nuance of travel softball. Smarter softball plays fast.

Tina McIntosh, 14U Exposure: Tina McIntosh has coached with Warren Wave for 15years. Her focus is on fundamentals and getting players to the next level. Many of her players have gone on to play in college. She has played high level softball herself and has a deep respect for the game. She has also been a WTGS Board member for several years.

Destanie Diaz 16U Exposure: This is Destanie's 9th year coaching and her 2nd season with Warren Wave. She has played at the competitive level for many years and loves to coach. Her goal as an exposure coach is to progressively develop female athletes on and off the field as a player and a person. Destanie's overall focus for next season is to prepare her athletes for college ball at any level. Destanie is excited to continue with Wave for the 2022-2023 season. 

Kelli Layton, 18U Exposure: Kelli Layton has been a coach with Warren Wave for 7 years and is currently in her 4th year as the 18u manager. Kelli played college softball at Millikin University and was the first “Wave for Life” player, having played her entire travel career with Warren Wave. Along with focusing on teaching fundamentals and game strategy, Kelli and her coaching staff strive to teach life lessons on and off the field. Additionally, Kelli and her staff prioritize college recruitment and exposure.
