Goats and Glory is the Navy’s first-ever competitive esports team. They are traveling to Dayton, OH to run a tournament out of Connect E-Sports, Dayton’s first esports center, with various local high schools and colleges for popular esports game, Rocket League.

“We’re very excited to work with the U.S. Navy’s esports team to expand the competitive esports scene here in Dayton, OH. Esports allow for younger generations to play the games they are already playing at home but in a structed environment similar to traditional sports to build teamwork skills among peers,” said owner of Connect E-Sports, Mary Baldino.
