Program for Ages 10 -13
The US Naval League Cadet Corps (USNLCC)
The junior cadet program introduces its members to naval life through instruction in basic seamanship and leadership.
NLCC members are able to participate in monthly drill sessions and during school breaks and in a one-week orientation class as well as in specially-designed annual training sessions. The purpose of the USNLCC program is to prepare its cadets for success upon entering USNSCC by exposing them to the fundamentals of seamanship and leadership.
The training program is less arduous than NSCC’s, but still includes a wide variety of away-from-home, one-week training opportunities designed to give cadets exposure to Navy life.
Program for Ages 13 – 17
The US Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC)
The senior cadet program exposes its cadets to the full rigors of a military training program. Cadets are required to attend a mandatory two week recruit training camp.
After this requirement is met, cadets are eligible to participate in a variety of advance training sessions.
These sessions serve to expose cadets to seamanship and sea going subjects. They also focus on developing an appreciation for our country’s rich naval history, customs, and traditions.
