This video gives an in depth insight into the rules governing caught/carried balls in volleyball while attacking/tipping. It looks into the FIVB rules and Gu...
Rule 13.1.2 in the FIVB rulebook states, during an attack hit, tipping is permitted only if the ball is cleanly hit, and not caught or thrown. Players who are called for a carry during an attack are most often guiding or dragging the ball. This runs counter to the “cleanly hit” portion of the rule.
Determine whether or not the ball was hit with an open hand. If the palm is facing upward and not in a closed fist, a lift or carry should be called if the ball strikes the hand. Check for backspin on the ball. If the player makes too much contact on the ball, more than likely backspin will be created on the ball.
A lift/carry is still a fault regardless of the speed of the attack, or method of contact. USA Volleyball, FIVB and AVP beach rules allow a momentary lift in defense of a hard-driven ball (defined as "an attack-hit or blocked ball traveling at a high rate of speed"), giving rise to open-palmed overhead beach digs that might be whistled as lifts indoors.
The basic rules of volleyball are the same across all variations of the sport. Play is typically organized with two teams organized in a formation on either side of a net. Each team attempts to score points by sending the ball over the net to their opponent, with the goal of having the ball hit the ground to end each rally.

Here's all that the rulebook says about ball contact: 1997-98 USA Volleyball Indoor Rules: ----- 14.4 Characteristics of the hit 14.4.1 The ball may touch any part of the body. 14.4.2 The ball must be hit, not caught or thrown.
Ball-handling errors and contacting the ball illegally (double touching, lifting, carrying, throwing, etc.) Touching the net with any part of the body while the ball is in play. Blocking a ball coming from the opponent’s court and contacting the ball when reaching over the net if your opponent has not used 3 contacts AND has a player there to make a play on the ball.
Underhand contact with the ball should be with your forearm platform pass. The rules are very clear that your contact with the ball is supposed to be momentary, quick and clean. Any time you maintain a longer touch on the ball or seem to “possess” it, the referee will call you for a lift or a carry.
