1. Turn your Tracers ON

Press the ON button on the bottom right hand side of the case. Wait until all Tracers finish starting up and are blinking red.

It will take about 10 seconds for the Tracers to blink red.

2. Scan your Trace Case ID

Use your phone’s built-in camera to scan the barcode ID on your Trace case.

3. Hand out Tracers

Your app will show every Tracer number assigned to every player you entered into the roster.

The Tracers are programmed to auto-shutdown after 180 minutes. If your game could go into extra time or penalties, please distribute the Tracers no more than 15-20 minutes prior to kick-off.

4. Wearing your Tracer

Have each player check that their Tracer is blinking red. Insert the Tracer into the provided strap and wrap the strap around the calf of the players’ dominant (kicking) leg.

(If your team has players that are younger than 12, we recommend you follow these steps for distributing your Tracers.)

Set up the tripod 4-5 steps from the midfield line. Secure the tripod with all three sandbags. Each sandbag holds ~10lbs of sand.

When the camera is ready, the record lights will flash red.

7. Scan your camera ID

Use the QR reader or type it in manually.

8. Raise & aim the tripod

Raise the tripod all the way and aim it towards the centerline. Align the flat back of the camera parallel to the sideline.

9. Connect the camera to Preview

Adjust your aim based on the preview.

Congrats. you’ve started to Trace, and now your match is in play.
