If by "places" you mean positions, here are the common ones:

A "libero" is a player who plays in the back row ONLY.

A "setter" is the player who the ball is aimed to with a pass, and the setter will attempt to set the ball in the air for a hitter.

A "middle" or "middle hitter" is one who transitions to the middle before every play, and spikes from the front middle.

A "strong side hitter" or commonly called "left side" plays in the front left, and same as the middle, transitions to that spot before every play. The spike from that side.

A "weak side hitter" or "right side" plays the same way as the middles and strong sides. A weak side hitter will play on the front right, and hit from there also.
