Boy's Program Director, CoachBill has been a boys’ gymnastics coach for 50 years and is nationally known for designing and building boys’ programs. Bill’s ties to Texas began in 1974 when he met Robert Cowan at the first USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic National Championships in Algonquin, Illinois, and later when he worked with Dr. Hutch Dvorak, gymnastics coach at Houston Baptist University, at a Colorado gymnastics clinic. These two coaches constantly exposed him to the magic of Texas gymnastics, inviting him year after year to clinics and competitions in Texas and laid the groundwork for Bill’s eventual move to Houston in 1989. Before coming to Texas, he was Assistant Coach and Boys Program Director at Gold Cup Gymnastics in Albuquerque, New Mexico from 1981 to 1989. He was Boys’ Head Coach and Program Director at Cypress Academy from 1989 to 2001. In 2001, Larry Brooks and Bill Foster founded Houston North Gymnastics. Bill has coached numerous Junior and Senior National Team members, as well as being the Junior Coach to nine gymnasts who went on to earn positions on Olympic and World Championships teams. He is a member of the USAG Men’s Program Committee (2001-present) and is a member of the USAG Junior Olympic Program Committee. He was the USAG JO National Championships Meet Director in 1984, 1988, and 1999 and was the 1982 Recipient of the USA Gymnastics Frank Cumiskey Service Award for Service to Junior Boys Gymnastics. GAT has previously honored Bill with their Service to Youth Award and the Distinguished Service Award, and he has been honored by Honduras and Guatemala for contributions to gymnastics in those countries. He has been a Nationally Rated Men’s Judge for over 35 years and a FIG Brevet Judge since 1976.
