Officer's Crest for Naval Sea Cadet Corps

Adult Leaders

Adult Leaders are dedicated volunteers are at least 21 years old who operate units, instruct cadets and escort cadets when they particpate in training and community activities. Adult Leaders and NSCC Officers come from civilian and military communities. Betsy Ross Adult Leaders and Officers undergo training in order to maintain the high quality standards for both the Naval Sea Cadet Corps and the Navy League Cadet Corps.

Parents of Cadets are welcome to become Adult Leaders. Involved parents will provide an unique strength to the NSCC and NLCC Programs.

What the Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) and the Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC) look for in their Adult Leaders and Officers:

1. Must be a U.S. Citizen

2. Be at least 21 years old

3. Pass a criminal background check

4. Be free of felony convictions

A medical examination similar to a high school sports physical is required for all cadet applicants to the Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) or Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC). No one will be denied admission to the NSCC/NLCC due to a medical disability. Where a medical condition precludes full, unlimited participation, a Request for Accommodation (NSCADM 015) may be presented by the parent or guardian for review so the cadet may participate in NSCC activities to the maximum extent possible.

Adult applicants must be in good health commensurate with their age group and be free from any ailment or condition that would prevent them from satisfactorily performing their primary duty of supervising youth. NOTE: Adults not physically qualified to perform all duties may still participate with a waiver from NHQ considering the parameters of their expected contribution to the NSCC program.

Betsy Ross Leaders

Divisional Officers and Adult Leaders come from our Greater Los Angeles Community. Each brings their unique backgrounds and special talents to Cadet Drills, Training and Operations. Some of them have been former Cadets from both the Bryce Canyon and Betsy Ross Units within the Naval Sea Cadet Crops or the Navy League Cadet Corps. The majority have had prior U.S. Military experience. All are highly motivated to provide a drug and gang free environment in which Cadets can learn about naval life, develop a sense of pride, patriotism, courage, self-reliance.
