America's Sea Cadets is a maritime based youth program sponsored by the U.S. Navy and supported by the U.S. Coast Guard. Cadets train on naval bases and other military installations in a variety of military disciplines, always choosing adventure, seeking challenges, and stepping out of their comfort zone to prove to the world that Greatness Has No Age.
Sea Cadets is comprised of two programs–our junior program, the Navy League Cadets for young adults ages 10 - 13, and our senior program, the Naval Sea Cadets for those between 13 and the completion of high school.
We have approximately 400 units across the United States, and in Guam and Puerto Rico. If you can’t find a local unit, check out our Virtual Battalion.
