Albemarle Redbirds Fast Pitch Softball
The Albemarle County Redbirds are a local branch of the Northern Virginia Redbird Softball Club. The original Redbirds have been in existence for many years and have developed a lot of talent that has gone on to play at the collegiate level. Marc Powell (see coaches page) worked closely with Fred Weinberg to start the Albemarle County Redbirds in this area in the fall of 2005. Marc and his wife Anne are the primary managers of this program. Together they bring years of experience to the program. They started coaching together when their oldest daughter was in 2nd grade in 1998 . They joined "CAGS" softball when moving to Charlottesville in 2001 and have been very active in the local rec program for years.
A travel program was the next step for them as their oldest daughter sought a higher level of play, and the younger quickly learned to love the tournament experience. Both Marc and Anne feel strongly about good working relationships with teams in the nearby area and with rec programs in the county so that many more girls will learn to enjoy the game of fastpitch.
