I've torn both of my ACL's and I could not imagine being able to play without getting surgery for it. However, one of my teamates torn both of hers as well and did not get surgery for either one which is only because her body would not accept the new ligament. If you plan on quitting soccer or sports then you do not need surgery. You should probably talk to a doctor though.
