We request you dry clean your uniforms when returning them and if you choose not to, we will use $50 of your uniform deposit to do so).

When and ONLY when steps 1 through 3 are completed correctly, we will process your application and you will receive your official U.S. Naval Sea Cadet ID card.  

Do not lose your ID. You are required to have NSCC ID with you when in uniform.



Once your registration is complete, our Supply Petty Officers will ensure you are fitted and issued uniforms at the next drill.  Remember, these are REAL U.S. Navy uniforms and should be treated with respect, which means acting professional and being a great ambassador for the Navy and Annapolis Division.

All uniform components provided by Annapolis Division will be returned upon resignation from unit.

THANK YOU for volunteering you time to help and guide our cadets.  

Remember:  The most important quality for Annapolis Division volunteers to have is the ability to always follow the motto “It’s For ALL The Cadets!”

There are three types of volunteers:

Auxiliary: The Auxiliary consists of volunteers who only desire to make a limited commitment and whose responsibilities are occasional.  We rely on these member to help transport cadets to events and help us ensure we have enough adults present at drill, in accordance with USNSCC regulations.

Instructor & Officers:  Officers and instructors are adult volunteers who have made the commitment to become members of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps and to support Annapolis Division with a greater level of involvement. These volunteers are responsible for the day-to-day operation of the unit and drills. They attend the OPD 101-301 series of training programs, which are designed specifically for USNSCC officers and instructors and wear NSCC uniforms (which includes the alternate uniform:  khaki pants and USNSCC polo)
