Hardware Requirements

What you need

Our training systems require an Oculus Rift with Touch controllers.  The Rift requires a VR-ready computer.

Oculus Rift + Touch

Virtual Goalie leverages the power of Oculus Rift + Touch to bring you a fully immersive simulated training environment.

Rift is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. Whether you’re stepping into your favorite game, watching an immersive VR movie, or jumping to a destination on the other side of the world, you’ll feel like you’re really there.

VR-ready Computer

Your PC is the engine that powers Rift. Oculus recommends a minimum level of hardware to ensure performance across a range of experiences. Although you have choices, we recommend the Acer Predator Helios 300. Keep in mind, you can use the computer for other things like gaming or everyday use.

If you aren’t sure if your computer is compatible, download the Oculus Rift Compatibility Tool and test it.

We highly recommend that you test your existing computer or buy an Oculus-ready computer. Don’t be fooled by “Windows Mixed Reality” computers.* They must be “VR-ready.”


Support for HTC Vive is on the roadmap.  If you want HTC Vive support, please let us know. The more people who ask, the faster it will be implemented.

*Please be aware that we do not support Windows Mixed Reality headsets. WMR headsets are intriguing because of the resolution and common platform.  However, we have tested most WMR headsets and cannot recommend them for sports training at this time. They move too much during strenuous training, and the fixed lenses are too far apart for many young athletes. As the second wave of headsets are released, we will continue to test the devices.
