After you catch the ball, whichever foot touches the ground first is called your landing foot; if both feet touch the ground simultaneously, or if both feet are already on the ground when you catch the ball, then you can choose either foot to be the landing foot.

Whichever foot is your landing foot, the other foot can be moved however you like, essentially so long as your landing foot stays in the same spot. Well, almost. To complicate things, you are allowed lift your landing foot off the ground, as long as your other foot remains still once the landing foot is lifted. You must also let go of the ball before your landing foot touches the ground again.

Needless to say, you can't drag your landing foot, nor can you hop, skip or run with the ball. And you have to release the ball within three seconds.
