I'd further add that FIVB and USAV beach rules are extremely similar
with respect to 2's play.  FIVB beach rules can be found at:

and can be compared to their US counterparts:

AVP and AVA rules, as I said in my previous posting are extremely
similar.  AVA rules contain some departures from AVP rules to make
them more suitable to amateur competition.  For example, under AVA
rules, I have a note that a block does not count as a team contact.
Be sure to double check this, as this note was made based on last
year's AVA rulebook.
