Former ASU Softball Star Kristen Miller Joins Paladin Softball Club Coaching Staff


Former Arizona State University standout catcher and 2008 National Champion, Kristen Miller, has joined the coaching staff of Paladin Softball Club, according to a press release from Paladin Sports Outreach. Miller will form and coach a new 2010 girls' softball team.

Paladin Sports Outreach has been offering recreational softball programming for San Tan Valley and Queen Creek youth since 2016. The organization's softball academies have seen growth over the past years, launching the initial Softball Club with its first team in 2018. The addition of Miller to the Paladin Softball Club staff marks the second team in the program.

"The addition of Coach Miller to our organization is a testament to the commitment our staff has to grow a high quality, affordable, and Christ-centered club softball program in the East Valley," said Paladin Sports Director of Programs & Operations Blake Wilsford.

Kristen Miller has played softball her entire life with a number of different competitive travel organizations and played her high school ball at Diamond Bar in CA. She started her collegiate career at Long Beach State before transferring to Arizona State University and winning the NCAA national Championship for the Sun Devils her senior season in 2008. From there she continued her softball career playing for the Philadelphia Force in Allentown PA for a season.

After that, she married her husband Matt Brown and stayed in the softball world by coaching travel ball organizations, doing private hitting and catching instruction, and coached a number of different collegiate teams including returning to Arizona State University as the assistant coach for 2 seasons. She has a burning passion to help young women accomplish whatever it is in sports that they desire.

"I came into this organization and community for the meaning and purpose that Paladin provides for youth softball players that have a really deep desire to succeed not only in sports but life as well," said Miller. "After attending a Paladin fundraiser with my husband, I became awakened to the mission of the organization to offer kids an outlet to learn, grow, and progress through the athletics community."

An open, free tryout will be held on Tuesday, April 4, at Legacy Sports Complex from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. For more details, or to register, please contact Coach Miller at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
