Markus Bathelt will be entering his 5th season as the Head Women's Soccer Coach at Chabot College. Since 1999, he has not only coached various teams on the collegiate, high school and club levels in the Bay Area and Hawaii, but furthermore his focus has always been to educate, excite and share his experience and knowledge with the numerous young players that he had the opportunity to work with in the past.

Before taking on the responsibilities for the women's soccer program at Chabot, he had moved back in 2009 to his native country of Germany to commit himself to a Sports Agency as a scout and recruiter for professional soccer players. At the same time he also functioned in his eminent area of expertise by providing active support to some of these athletes as a strength and conditioning coach.

When he left the Bay Area in December of 2008, he just finished the season as an Assistant Coach of the Chabot Men's and Women's Soccer Teams. Before that, he led the Girls' Soccer program of Kamehameha High School on Maui in the State of Hawaii in 2007/2008 to their first ever Maui Championship in school history. He was also voted "Coach of the Year" by his peer coaches of the Maui Interscholastic League for his successful season with only one loss in 16 league matches.

In the summer of 2007, he received his Master of Science degree in Kinesiology from CSU East Bay in Hayward. While he pursued his Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis on Physical Education Teaching, he was an Assistant Coach for the Men's Soccer program of CSU Hayward in 2004/2005 under long-time Head Coach, Jair Fory.

Before he transferred to CSUH, he was a student of Merritt and Chabot College, and also competed as an athlete for the swimming and cross country programs at Chabot. During those years, he also coached various boys' and girls' soccer programs at Castro Valley, Emery, Urban and Lick-Wilmerding High School.

Markus played competitive "football" only in Germany. At the age of 7, he joined his first club in the Frankfurt area where he grew up. Just as he turned 19, he had to end his playing career when faced with his second severe knee injury.

At Chabot he also teaches Fitness, Tennis, and Sports Management classes.
