Tracing scrimmages at practice

If it looks like a game… you can Trace it.

Yes, it is possible to Trace scrimmages or practice. However, in order for TRACE-BOT to process your results correctly you have to simulate real-game conditions as closely as possible. Below are some scenarios you may want to consider:

✅ Only 1 team wears Tracers

What you need to do

  • Separate your players into Team A & Team B
  • Play on a soccer field with two goals
  • Create a new Trace game as you normally would
  • Play two equal length halves
  • Switch sides between halves as you normally would
  • Important: Assign Tracers to Team A roster only
  • Do not substitute players from one team to another.

The results

✅ Tactical Playlists
✅ Player Moments (Team A)

❌ Both teams wear Tracers

Trace will not work properly if both teams are wearing Tracers.

✅ Smaller field sizes

Make sure your smaller fields are clearly marked with cones for all 4 corners and the center line.

❌ Tracing will not process for drills / technical work

You cannot Trace when there are multiple balls on the field. You may use drills as an opportunity to test your equipment, practice setup, and give the players a chance to get used to Tracers – but, we will not be able to provide any results.
