Not true. The AVP rulebook has no specific prohibition on overhand
passing ("setting") the first ball. FIVB Beach rules do not have such
a rote prohibition either.
18.6 Ball contact
D. A "hard driven" ball from an attack or from a blocked ball
rebounding back into the attacker's court may be contacted multiple
times in succession by a player if these contacts occur during one
attempt to play the ball. This counts as one team contact. A
"hard driven ball may never be carried or allowed to come to rest."
USAV Beach 1997-98
13.4 Characteristics of the Contact
13.4.1 A player may touch the ball with any part of the body.
13.4.2 A player may have successive contact with the ball during a
single attempt to make the team's first contact provided the
fingers are not used to direct the ball.
13.4.3 The ball must be contacted cleanly and not held, lifted,
pushed, caught, carried or thrown. The ball cannot roll or
come to rest on any part of the player's body. It can rebound
in any direction.
184.108.40.206 An exception shall be allowed during the defensive play of a
hard-driven ball (an attack-hit or blocked ball traveling at
a high rate of speed), as judged by the referee. In that
case, the ball may be momentarily lifted or pushed, provided
the attempt is one continuous motion.
13.4.4 A contact of the ball using the fingers of one or two hand to
direct hte ball toward a teammate is a set. A player may set
the ball in any direction toward his/her team's court.
220.127.116.11 Rotation of a set ball may indicate a held ball or multiple
contacts during the set but in itself is not a faul.
13.4.5 For doubles and triples competition only: If the ball is
intentionally set into the opponent's court, the player must
contact the ball with two hands above his/her shoulders and set
it directly forward or directly backward with relation to
13.4.5 Commentary: A legal set directed toward a teammate that
crosses the net because of elements is not a fault, regardless
of the player's body position.
13.4.6 For Doubles, Triples and Four-Player Competition only: When
contacting the ball with one hand, other than for setting the
ball toward a teammate, the ball must be cleanly hit with the
heel or palm of the hand (a roll shot), with straight, locked
fingertips (a cobra), knurled fingers (a camel toe) or with the
back of the hand from the wrist to the knuckles. One handed
placement or redirectio of the ball with the fingers (a dink or
open-hand tip) is a fault.
