The 2013 FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour begins today!  It has been a long off-season but we are back to the beach and our FIVB World Tour coverage begins today.  As always, we'll be posting the teams, matchups and live streams if available.  Because of the switcheroo with the FIVB rules and qualifications this year, the Canadian partnerships have switched a little bit.  Here are the Canadian men's and women's teams competing in Fuzhou this week.
