The Grand Canyon softball program and head coach Ann Pierson welcomed Chelsey Broermann as the newest assistant coach for the 2021 season.   

“I am so excited to welcome Chelsey back to the GCU softball program full time,” Pierson said. “Chelsey was on our staff during the 2014 WAC championship season as well as the 2015 season. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from Arizona State, Georgetown and Texas. She will take over the outfield and assist with hitting, catching and the overall offense. We are so fortunate to have Chelsey back as a Lope!”

Broermann returned to GCU for her second stint with the Lopes as the volunteer assistant coach for the 2019 season. She was an assistant coach for GCU in 2015 after spending the 2014 season as a volunteer assistant with the program.

During Broermann’s time on Pierson’s staff, she helped guide the Lopes to their first regular season WAC championship in 2014. After, she spent three years at Georgetown developing the defense and working with hitters. Most recently, she spent the 2018-19 season at Texas as the video coordinator for the Longhorns, making a super regional appearance against Alabama.

Broermann served as a graduate assistant for the Arizona State softball team from 2010-12 and later became the director of softball operations. Broermann helped guide ASU to a Pac-10 Championship in 2011 and three College World Series appearances, including a national championship in 2011. Prior to her time at ASU, Broermann spent one season playing at Azusa Pacific University.

She also had a coaching stint with the Birmingham Thunderbolts club program where she worked specifically with the pitchers and catchers.

Broermann graduated from Arizona State in 2010 with a B.A. in Communication. While earning an M.A. in Communication from ASU, she worked as a softball graduate assistant for the Sun Devils from 2010-12 and director of operations for the 2013 season. Broermann also earned an M.A. in Business Leadership from GCU and an M.P.S. in Sports Management from Georgetown.
