Sea Cadets Celebrate 50 Years

50th Anniversary

The Naval Sea Cadet Corps was federally incorporated on September 10, 1962 by Act of Congress under Public Law 87-655 as a non-profit organization with specific objectives and purposes in regard to the training and character development of American youth. In this, the fiftieth year since the NSCC was formally established; we celebrate how the Corps has contributed to thousands of current and former Cadets in the development of strong core values, discipline and teamwork. These attributes have benefitted many former Cadets by enabling their success in all walks of life, be it the military, government or business. Our efforts will assist current and future Cadets in the same ways, and will in turn spark the spirit of achievement that has so often thrust our Cadets into lifetimes of selfless service.

Welcome Aboard!

Welcome to the website of the Betsy Ross Division located in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles. Founded in 1984, the Division is the only all female Division in the Country and operates with its brother unit the Bryce Canyon Division. Operating both Divisions under a unified command structure over many years provides an all-male and all-female approach that is unique within the Sea Cadet Program.

Bryce Canyon and Betsy Ross NSCC and NLCC Divisions, Officers and Instructors at Annual Inspection

This award winning unit puts to the test our cadets through its character-building program, which is based on the Naval Sea Cadet Mission in a drug-free, gang-free and compliant with American with Disabilities Act (ADA). Although not a recruiting program for the U.S. Naval Services, we encourage our Cadets to live according to the Navy Core Values of Honor, Courage and Commitment.

Our program is for 11 to 14 year old females under the Navy League Sea Cadets, and for 13 to 17 year old females under the U.S. Navy Sea Cadets Corps. Both programs are managed by adult staff officers dedicated to providing and instilling our core values. These officers may be civilians, former cadets or military (active, reserve or retired) that are knowledgeable of youth programs and interested in Cadet training.

Please explore our website and learn more of what we are doing to enrich the lives of the cadets in our program.
