Becoming a parent or guardian in the Sea Cadets is an exciting opportunity. Unlike many other extracurriculars, Sea Cadets allows your son or daughter to chart their own path to success, step outside of the comfort zone, and seek challenges. 

Safety is our number one priority. All of our volunteers undergo regular background checks and cadets are under adult supervision throughout training.

Cadet units typically meet one weekend per month or one night per week during the school year. Training away from home is conducted during school vacation periods.

Our annual enrollment fee is $90 a year. Many units charge additional administrative fees. Uniform fees range between $200 and $400 in the first year. Summer and winter training costs vary by the duration of the event but typically cost about $150 per week. The training deposit covers instruction, room, and board.

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), it is the policy of the Sea Cadets that no qualified person will be excluded from participation in, denied the benefit of, or otherwise subjected to discrimination by the USNSCC simply because that person has a disability. The Sea Cadets will grant reasonable accommodations where necessary to permit full participation.
