Are you only allowed 3 hits in volleyball?

A team may touch the ball no more than three times. The same player can't touch the ball twice in a row. Once somebody on the other team touches the ball, you get three more tries to put it over the net and in. A ball is "in" if any part of the ball touches any part of the line, or if the ball is fully on the court.
