The Generation Next Basketball Association middle school platform took the country by storm two years ago as its debut added yet another high quality basketball platform to the NY2LA Sports high quality family of events.  Its debut instantly brought organization and structure to the middle school grassroots world and at the same time it featured some of the hottest young prospects and teams on the circuit.  The circuit returns again in 2016 for its third installment and it once again promises to feature some of the top teams and prospects at the 5th-8th grade levels both regionally and nationally.

The 3rd year of the GNBA is already shaping up to be a stellar collection of talent at the 5th-8th grade levels including a number of high caliber programs already locked in to return and some new ones set to hit the middle school circuit with us for the first time.
