The Navy League Sea Cadet Program & Objectives

The Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC) is for girls, atleast 11 but not yet 14 years old, who are interested in the sea and ships, and our nation's seagoing services (a younger version of Sea Cadets). The Navy League program is designed to introduce young people to marine and military life, and to prepare them for later entrance into the Naval Sea Cadet Corps. This program is sponsored by the U.S. Navy League, a non-profit organization and operated through a National organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. Community sponsorships are obtained through local and civic organizations within the Greater Los Angeles area.

The objectives of the NLCC are to give young people mental, moral and physical training, through the use of naval and other instruction, with the object of developing principles of patriotsm and good citizenship, and instilling in them a sense of duty, disciple, self-respect, and a respect for others.

Our program complies with American with Disabilities Act (ADA) with no exception.

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.

It's fun!

Being a Cadet teach you responsibility. You meet different people and who they are. You experience things you would not normally do. There was Boot Camp at Camp Roberts away from home and parents. I am learning martial arts.

I am raising my grades. I am more confident in myself and trusting others. It teaches you responsibility and helps build character.

Did I say it was fun?
