What you will need

  1. Trace Teams app for creating your game and starting/stopping the equipment

  2. Trace Cam

  3. Tripod + 3 full sandbags (10lbs each)

  4. Trace Case + provided straps

If this is your first time give yourself 45-60 minutes before the game to set up and 20 minutes after the game to pack up.

1. Create a new game

Find the games tab in your Trace Teams iOS app. Tap Create a new game and follow the steps to select your opponent, game date & time, and half lengths.

2. Set up the tripod at mid field

Set up the tripod 4-5 steps from the midfield line. Secure the tripod with all three sandbags. Each sandbag holds ~10lbs of sand. If possible set up camera away from the sun. You will come back to raise the tripod later during the Start Tracing procedure.

Note: You must secure your tripod to safely use your camera.

Congrats. You are set up and ready to go.

What happens next?
Start Recording your game about 15-20 minutes before kickoff.*

*The Tracers are programmed to auto-shutdown after 180 minutes, so if you are playing in a game that could go into extra time and/or penalties, please distribute the Tracers no more than 15-20 minutes prior to Kick-off.
