Mission Statement

NLCC Program: Age 13 - 17 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 NLCC program is to prepare its cadets for success upon entering NSCC by exposing them to the fundamentals of seamanship and leadership. NSCC Program: Age 10 - 13 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 advanced training sessions. These sessions serve to expose cadets to seamanship and seagoing subjects. They also focus on developing an appreciation for our country's rich naval history, customs and traditions.


USNSCC is comprised of two programs. The Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) program is for young people ages 13 through 17. Also included under the USNSCC umbrella is our junior program the Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC), for young people ages 11 through 13.

We are sponsored by the Navy League of the United States and supported by both the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard.

The Goals of Our Cadet Programs

At the request of the Department of the Navy, the Navy League of the United States established the USNSCC in 1962 to "create a favorable image of the Navy on the part of American youth".

Today's U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps continues to further the image of our maritime services by adhering to a standardized training program designed to:

  1. Develop an interest and ability in seamanship and seagoing skills
  2. Instill virtues of good citizenship and strong moral principles in each cadet
  3. Demonstrate the value of an alcohol-free, drug-free and gang-free lifestyle
  4. Expose cadets to the prestige of public service and a variety of career paths through hands-on training with our nation's armed services
