Title: Headwear for team water sports

Abstract: A cap for wearing under the team designating outer cap during team water sports consists of a hemispherically shaped body defining side sections and the first and a second transverse section. The cap is reversible so that either the first or the second transverse section can be worn over the forehead of the wearer. To prevent a violation of rules and to avoid confusing the players it is conventional that the inner cap resemble the outer cap in color. Conventionally one team wears a white or light-colored cap while the opposing team wears a dark colored cap. The inner cat of the present invention is provided with dark indicia covering the portion of the surface of one of the transverse sections so that in the event the outer cap rides back on the players head exposing the portion of the inner cap, the indicia will substantially reduce possible confusion which could occur if the players catch a glimpse of the normally light-colored inner cap. Being reversible, the light-colored transverse section can be worn over the players forehead when wearing the light-colored outer cap.
