Thank you for your interest in the Naval Sea Cadet Program and the Annapolis Division. The following information will give you a brief overview of what you can do as a cadet. You’ve obviously also found our web site and this will be an important tool for you to gather further information about the unit.
The Naval Sea Cadet Corps is a non-profit, nautically oriented, youth training and education organization dedicated to developing the principles of patriotism, good citizenship, self-confidence and also to instill in young people a sense of duty, discipline and respect for self and others. Training is year round with a concentrated program during the summer months.
After completion of a two week recruit training camp, a variety of opportunities are available to cadets. These include Airmen training, FAA Ground school and shipboard training. Also available are Submarine seminars, medical training, Leadership, Seabee, Music and SEAL Training to name just a few.
How much time will be required of you for the program? The unit drills are one weekend per month. Both Saturday and Sunday and a minimum of 1 two week training period a year, normally conducted in the summer.
As you can see there are many opportunities for you and it is a program that you would be proud to be a part of. Our next Parent/Cadet briefing will be held on every Friday night during the drill weekend. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please RSVP if you are planning to attend the briefing by e-mail or phone. I will need the names of attendees for planning purposes. Once again THANK YOU and I look forward to meeting you very soon.
