With years of industry experience, specific design elements and top-of-the-line materials, KAP7 has created the long-lasting and extremely tacky HydroGrip for all levels of competition. KAP7 offers five sizes of balls. The KAP7 104 and 105 will be used in NCAA competition.

“It is a great honor to extend our partnership with the NCAA,” said Bradley Schumacher, chief executive officer and founder of Kap7 International. “We are committed to servicing water polo student-athletes at the highest level, and being asked to continue our partnership with the NCAA reflects the quality products KAP7 is producing. Most importantly, the water polo community continues to support our efforts at K7, which allows us to continue to support the development of water polo worldwide.”

“Providing our NCAA student-athletes and member schools with quality products is always our goal,” said Joni Comstock, NCAA senior vice president for championships.   “Through its relationship with the NCAA, KAP7 has provided student-athletes and coaches with excellent championship equipment, and we look forward to working with KAP7 in the future.”
