Senior Airman Bree Watson

Senior Airman Bree Watson is a 413th Force Support Flight customer service technician who’s been at Robins for nearly a year. Some of Watson’s day-to-day responsibilities include making I.D. cards, assisting with family care and running the newcomer’s program.

But off duty, the Warner Robins, Georgia, native remains involved with something that’s been near and dear to her heart since childhood—fastpitch softball.

“I grew up playing softball, so that’s always been my sport,” she said. “I was good at it. I enjoyed it. But when I got too old, there were no teams for me to play on. That’s when I started coaching at the [recreation] department.”

Watson said she began coaching in 2012 after graduating high school. She stayed with the same girls-youth team she played for, but as years went by, familiar faces got replaced by new ones. Yet, that only encouraged her to continue her mentoring.

“I like to pass my knowledge to other people, so they can enjoy it how I did and hopefully get more people to want to keep playing,” she explained.

Watson said she’d like to go to school to eventually become a high school or college softball coach. However, in the meantime, she recently took on the challenge of also coaching a boys-youth baseball team that her younger brother plays on.
