How To Put On Water Polo Cap
Knowing how to put on a water polo cap isn't just for the fashionable swimmer. Who wouldn't want to wear those cool looking condom shaped water polo caps outside of the pool? Seriously though, water polo caps are designed for a number of reasons. The least of those reasons are for fashionable expression. Water polo caps are worn so the players can identify their team mates (similar to a jersey in basketball). Visiting teams where light colored water polo caps while the home team wears the darker colored water polo caps. There are even variations between the water polo caps of the starting goalies and their respective subs. Despite the fact that water polo caps have multiple variations, the most important reason for rocking those stylish things has to do with safety. Believe it or not many injuries can occur during a water polo match and the water polo cap provides much needed protection for the players head, and most importantly his ears. Here's the correct way to put on a water polo cap.
- Pull you hair back. If you've got longer hair, you're going to want to tuck it in under the water polo cap. The caps fit pretty securely and you don't want to have hair stuck in your face during a match. You'd be asking for injury.
- Positioning the cap. Look on the sides of your water polo cap. You see those pouch like parts of the cap. When you position the cap, you need to make sure that you securely place those pouches over your ears. You want your ears to be completely covered. There should be no unused space inside your cap. Your head should be lined by the cap and fitted snuggly inside. Remember though, your ears have to be protected. It is of the utmost importance that your ears are covered properly.
- Adjusting the cap. There is a strap that goes up under your chin. You can adjust it to help the cap fit your face better. Make sure everything is fitting securely and you're good to go.
