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.

Congrats. You are set up and ready to go.

What happens next?
Start Tracing 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.
