BILL HOMANN – 8TH GRADE
Player & Coach Development Leader
Bill has 29 years of coaching experience, including 4 in the Woodinville Select program.
Bill brings over 25 years of basketball coaching experience gained from coaching in most of the high school gyms in the state. He was the administrative assistant at NCAA Division II Seattle Pacific for 5 years and has head coaching experience at Shoreline Christian High School and Concordia Lutheran School. He was varsity assistant/JV coach at Tyee High School, Ballard High School, Watson Groen Christian, University Prep and Seattle Christian. Bill’s AAU experience includes numerous teams most recently at North City.

BILL WOODCOCK – 7TH GRADE
This is Bill’s first year coaching in the Woodinville Select Basketball program.
Bill and his wife Shannon are 20-year residents of Woodinville. During that time, Bill has coached at many different levels - from NYBA to Boys and Girls Clubs to, most recently, coaching the junior varsity team at Timbercrest middle school for four years (both boys and girls). Bill has also coached at the high school level. Bill’s son was a part of the Woodinville Select program as were his twin girls. So he is very familiar with the program, and in his own works, “I believe in it and I’m honored to be a part of it”
As the coach of the 7th grade team, Bill believes his most important job is to make sure the boys continue to develop their individual skills and to really understand how the game of basketball, offensively and defensively, should be played. His emphasis will be to make sure the boys appreciate that defense is hard work, and that on offense they need to be fundamentally sound. This includes proper floor spacing, player movement with intent, proper screening technique and shooting form, etc.
To paraphrase Gene Hackman from Hoosiers…Welcome to Woodinville Falcons basketball!!
ANKIT TOMAR – 6TH GRADE
This will be Ankit’s third season coaching in the Woodinville Select program, most recently as assistant coach for the 7th grade team. This will be his first year as head coach. As a coach, Ankit believes in building lasting relationships and player development on and off the court. The theme he will be implementing in this year’s team is to play “tough and together”.
As a player, Ankit first started playing basketball in 5th grade with Woodinville Select, growing and developing his skills to eventually bring to the high school varsity team. He also played varsity golf throughout his career and believes that the importance of footwork and mobility that he learned in golf immensely helped him in basketball.
