I have invited the two referees who whistled the 2010 FINA Cup Championship game to be, going forwards, instructors for our advanced courses (Advantage and The Center). When they are available, both Mark Koganov and Michael Goldenberg will drop in and help during the conduct of these courses. ANYONE who can get input from EITHER of these referees should count themselves as lucky.

Loren,

I have a quick question about defending 2m. In the eyes of the ref to what degree does (2m D) have the right to protect his ball side defense in a full front? Pending the deep wing defenders are doing their job preventing the ball from getting to the 1 and 5 positions.

I have played in several tournaments this summer and I have been confused by the ejection calls rewarded to 2m when the perimeter has passed the ball to the wrong side, and 2m offensive player does a duck under water to get back to ball side or commits offensive to get around 2d.
