COVID-19 RESPONSE​

Updated: March 12, 3:12 pm ET

We have made the decision to suspend all Sea Cadet activities, including drill, for the next 30 days. While there still has not been any confirmed case of COVID-19 in the Sea Cadet Community, we want to ensure that each and every one of our cadets and adult volunteers are safe and healthy.

We are working to create web-based training to provide to our units and cadets during this time.

As previously stated, we are committed to hosting our Summer Training schedule as planned. We will be working closely with our COTCs and training facilities to ensure they are sanitary and safe. We will be closely monitoring air travel alerts; however, at this time, we suggest that you only purchase refundable airfare should you need to cancel your flight in the future.

How to Stay Safe at Home:

We want to remind our volunteers, cadets, and parents that the best way to prevent the spread of illnesses such as COVID-19 and influenza is to:

    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 

    • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

    • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.    

    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, and then throw the tissue in the trash. 

    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.  

International Exchange Program

After careful consideration, we have made the decision to cancel our International Exchange Program for 2020. We will not be participating in any outbound or inbound exchanges this upcoming summer. 

While we know that this will be disappointing news for many of you, we want to ensure that we place your health and safety first.

Are you ready for the challenge?

THE U.S. NAVAL SEA CADET CORPS IS COMPRISED OF TWO PROGRAMS. THE NAVY LEAGUE CADET CORPS (NLCC) IS THE JUNIOR PROGRAM FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AGED 10 THROUGH 13. THE NAVAL SEA CADET CORPS (NSCC) IS THE SENIOR PROGRAM FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AGED 13 THROUGH 17. THE NLCC AND THE NSCC PROGRAMS ARE SIMILAR BUT VARY IN THAT THEIR TRAINING SESSIONS ARE TAILORED TO BE AGE-APPROPRIATE

1.  NLCC PROGRAM:  

This 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 NLCC program is to prepare its cadets for success upon entering NSCC 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.

2.  NSCC PROGRAM:  

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. 

 

WHO SHOULD JOIN NLCC?

If you are between the ages of 10 and 13, the NLCC is the ideal place to start.

WHO SHOULD JOIN NSCC?

If you are turning 14 this year, you should start in the NSCC.

We hold drill at the Roseville Armory located behind Placer County Fairgrounds in Roseville off Corporation Yard Road.

WHAT WE DO

 

The USN Sea Cadet Corps is a truly unique youth program that provides a safe place to make new friends, learn new things and participate in exciting training opportunities.

Joining the Sea Cadets is an incredible start if you are interested in Military Service, but in NO WAY obligates you to join the service.

SACRAMENTO 

 

The Sacramento Division and Training Ship California are two units joined by one Commanding Officer. We are one of the largest cadet units in the entire country!

    The secret to our success is diversity.  We have youth join us from all over the Sacramento area.  Some come from as far away as Galt, Woodland, Roseville, and even Grass Valley.

WHAT DOES  IT MEANS TO BE A CADET?

We are intelligent, proud individuals with a common goal.  We push ourselves to have strong minds as well as a strong bodies. Dedication, Pride and Patriotism are our watchwords.
