Rocket League is a fast paced, soccer-like video game in which three players on each team, utilizing rocket-powered cars, work together to knock the ball into the opposing team's goal and prevent it from entering their own. Each 5-minute game is conducted on a field without boundaries, and the clock only stops when a goal is scored. Over 60 community college's nationwide are currently fielding Esports programs.
