Best Answer

In soccer, it means to legally catch the ball with your body.

In Field Hockey, trapping is catching the ball by pinning it between the stick and the ground, after which the player can move with the ball.

In US football, it means that a forward pass is ruled incomplete because the player did not cleanly catch the pass, but caught it between his body and the ground.

The player without the ball must be careful not to get ahead of the ball itself. Once he does he is in an offside position and may not be involved with the play. This is important because if he is ahead of the ball at the instant his team-mate kicks it, then he cannot get involved.
