Typically there are two line judges in volleybal. They would stand in opposite corners of the field since each can see two lines different lines of the rectagular playing field.

In more contested games there may be as many as 8, two on each corner, each looking at a different line, and every corner verifying the other corners. In other words two line judges per one line

(two on one sideline, two on the other sideline, two on one endline, and two on the other endline).

Line judges stand on the corner of the court and watch the ball. If the ball lands close to the end line or the side line that the line judge is supposed to be watching, the ref looks to the line judge to call the ball inside or outside of the court. If the ball is in, the line judge puts their hands down, and if it is out, they put their arms up in the air. The line judge also looks to see if the team touches the ball on the block, or in the backrow, before the ball goes out. For example, if there was a ball that was hit and the blockers on the side of the line judge touch the ball before it lands out of bounds, the line judge puts one hand up and the other hand on top of it, kind of like a time out in Basketball.

It is people who stand on opposite ends on the court in volleyball. They call whether the ball is in or out of the court deciding who gets the point.

In international games, there will be 4 linesmen. But usually at a junior level, there will be 2 linesmen to avoid confusion with the 1st referee.
