New Lacrosse VR Training Game Being Tested

The VR game, titled Shootout, tracks your real life stick with an attachment to said stick quite effectively and is currently being tested for a public release. I had the opportunity to test it at an event on the HTC Vive, and it looks promising. The virtual stick tracked my real stick well, including the speed at which I was moving it. Once you score some goals, a virtual player is added to block your shots. The block detection on the player worked adequately and overall the experience left me wanting to pick it up when it is released. The game would be good for training when the weather or space availability doesn’t allow a physical practice. This is far from the first sports VR game being used for sports training, but it’s a big step for the lacrosse community as a whole.
