In the spirit of your .sig, 

NFHSA (Federation, High School):  Legal
USA Volleyball: Illegal
FIVB: Illegal
NAGWS (women's NCAA collegiate): Illegal

I think it's a bad idea to have a legal block on service--I can
envision a team who absolutely couldn't pass, but who could dominate
at lower levels of play with big blockers who patrol the net at
service.  The other team would be forced to serve high lollipop serves
that are easily passed.
