Referees use a great number of hand signals during a volleyball game. The referee blows the whistle to signal the start and end of each play. The line judges can only signal if a ball was in, out, touched, or a foot fault occurred. The down referee can call touches, nets, under the nets, and rotational errors.
Touch off the block Line judges should also help the first referee with touches off the block. The line judge should watch for touches by both the blockers at the net and also the players on the court reaching for the ball. Hold the touch signal for a good length of time to ensure the first referee and all participants see your signal.

The line judge signals for 5 main things: Ball was “in” the court. Ball was “out” of the court. Ball was “touched” by defending team before it went out. Most common when one of the blockers touches the ball, but this touch sends the ball off course (usually outside of the normal court lines). This can be hard to see, as slight touches may not affect the ball trajectory too much and the ball could still go out.
