If the goalie blocks a penalty kick is the penalty kicker allowed to touch the ball again before a player other than the goalie touches it?

If the ball rebounds off the goalkeeper, the ball is considered in play from then on. Anybody can play the ball, including the penalty taker; however, if the ball only bounces off the post or crossbar, the penalty taker cannot play the ball again until another player has touched it.

Note that the above only holds true for a penalty kick that takes place during the 90/120 minutes of the match. For kicks from the mark (a.k.a. penalty shoot out) once the shot has missed or has been saved, it is out of play.

Yes, blocks are allowed but not on a serve.

Cut blocks are, but chop blocks are not. Both should be against the rules.

No, a block is separate from the three allowed hits in volleyball. Also, someone who blocks is allowed to hit the ball again right after they block it.

A net violation is called on that player and the point is awarded to the other team.
