Welcome to rec.sport.volleyball!
This is a frequently asked question. Please consult
http://www.volleyball.org/rsv_faq.html for answers to this and other
common questions. Or, visit my refereeing web page listed below for
other rules-related items.
The answer is....it is legal under USA Volleyball and FIVB rule to hit
the ball with any part of your body. The only exception is in outdoor
6-person competition in which you can't contact the ball with anything
below your knee.
1997 USAV indoor rules:
14.4.1. The ball may touch any part of the body.
1997 USAV outdoor rules
13.4.1 A player may touch the ball with any part of the body.
184.108.40.206 For Six-player competition only: the ball may be
touched with any part of the body on or above the knee.
