The Community Services Command (CSC) Morale, Well-being, and Recreation (MWR) partnered with the Coast Guard Recruiting Command (CGRC) to align the Coast Guard with the other Services' esports programs to support readiness, retention, and resiliency within the service. As a result, Coast Guard Gaming (CGG) was established to create an inclusive gaming community where all ages, ranks, and backgrounds can come together and share fun gaming experiences. It forms positive relationships, enhances the competitive spirit, and improves esprit de corps.
Active duty members and reservists serving on active duty orders should join the CGG Discord to learn about opportunities and online qualifiers. CGG admin/moderators manage the channel and advise CG RC of team selections upon command endorsements. Interested gamers can access the CGG Discord through personal devices at the link below.
Coast Guard Gaming competed in various in-person esports exhibitions during 2022. Notable events include the inaugural Armed Forces Sports (AFS) Esports Championship, Call of Duty Endowment (CODE) Bowl III, and RugbyTown Sevens Esports Cup. The AFS Championship was the first federally sanctioned esports activity, integrating esports with traditional sports through the AFS sponsorship. The CODE Bowl recorded more than 2M streams, making it the most-viewed production since its outset. And RugbyTown Sevens teamed up with the Gold Star Gamers in a tribute to help kids that have suffered the loss of a military parent.
