George Tinnes - President

George Tinnes has been happily involved with the YNBA since the very first days of the Newmarket Basketball Club. Over the years, George has volunteered in every aspect of the YNBA's organization, having been a Houseleague and Rep coach, as well as a Houseleague Division convener, several times over. 

Back in the day, George played varsity basketball at Conestoga College, and after graduating with a Diploma in Business, he has become a successful self employed mortgage broker with Centum Mortgage Professionals Inc.

Dave Bannister - Vice President, Director of Rep

Dave Bannister has been dedicated for the past 20+ years to the quality of basketball in the northern part of York Region. 
He began as a coach with the York Region Avengers in 1997, before being asked to take over the running of the REP only club in 1998. After the YNBA was formed by merging the operations of the Newmarket Basketball Club and the East Gwillimbury Huskies in 2009, he has continued on the executive, focusing primarily with the REP teams. He has also volunteered with Basketball Ontario in the past to deal with the growth of basketball, helping deal with various issues that have arisen over the years.
In addition to being on the executive of the YNBA,  Dave has volunteered as a coach for many years, both for the club and also for five years as Head Coach for Newmarket High School. Although most of his teams has experienced great success, he is also very proud of each of the players individual growth. 
During the last several years, Dave has focused on helping the volunteer REP coaches of the YNBA club achieve a higher level of coaching by providing expertise in the gyms so they can improve without having to give up more of their precious time going to coaching clinics.
