In indoor and Field Hockey, only a player with goalkeeping priveleges may use the feet; any other use will be penalised. In Ice Hockey, any player may use their skates to stop the ball (or puck as is the case).

In figure skating, there are a bunch of ways to stop. The most common ones are the T-stop, and Hockey stop. To do the T-stop, you put your feet like a backwards T (whichever foot is most comfortable for you) and angle your back foot so that you stop. The hockey stop seems somewhat easier; to do this, you must turn your foot (again, whichever is easier) to the side and slightly angle it.

What role does friction play in football?

Without friction, the players would have trouble moving, as friction between their feet and the ground is part of what allows a person to walk or run. It would also be more difficult to make the ball start moving, or effectively catch it as friction helps grip the ball. It would also be more difficult to stop opposing players as friction between a tackler and the person being tackled is a large part of what allows the tackle to happen in many cases. Without friction, feet would simply slide along the ground rather then gripping it to propel a player forward or stop him, and the ball would be so slippery it would be nearly impossible to hold onto without completely cradling it.
