It was a job exceptionally done by all the organizers. We as spectators were in awe at the quality of the water polo executed in the tournament; admired how respectful the players were with the referees and amazed at their sheer talent.

Thank you very much for yet another super tournament. They are always so professionally run, and it’s always interesting to play on new teams with new athletes and figure out how to gel.

The Showcase features a lot of athletes from outside California and us being on the east coast it’s really beneficial to see both high level athletes that are from in and out of California

C Coach Bucknell University

I think it’s so great to have all of the athletes not really know each other. It kind of replicates what it’s like as a freshman coming into a collegiate team. So it’s great to see how they react to new teammates , how they communicate with each other and how fast they can figure everyone out in the best positive way.

C Coach Brown University

From the athletes point of view it’s getting to play with different people, being forced out of their comfort zone. Because typically they’re so used to playing with the same people in high school and club and then for us as coaches to see their ability to communist with new teammates, watching them step out of their traditional role I think is by far the most beneficial part of 6-8 collegiate showcases.

How it Work

The 6-8 Series Program

The 6-8 Series is a program made up of weekend events/ tournaments in different locations across the US and the globe. Open to any and all athletes.

On the first day of each program, you pass through the 6-8 Challenge skill assessment. We create the teams based on these results and your position (an objective method that creates equal and competitive teams). 

We score the games with our 6-8 Game Desk and crunch your stats with our 6-8 algorithm to create a unique +/- Performance Indicator for each athlete (reflects your overall game performance)

Together, your 6-8 Challenge results and +/- Performance Indicator provide an objective and data-based snapshot of who you are as an athlete. You have the power to improve your individual skills and performance over time.

Before each tournament, we collect your basic personal information to share with college coaches. After you pass through the Challenge, you will be assigned a cap color/ # and team and these details are also shared

Games are live streamed to college coaches and you can purchase your game footage afterwards to use for your own recruiting purposes

Following each tournament, we post the Top 10 athletes per position. After all of the tournaments have concluded, the 6-8 team will choose the top rated athletes from each tournament to participate in FINAL Showcase in California
