U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps is launching a *NEW* Parent Portal Training Sign-up, just in time for Summer!

We are looking forward to a robust summer training season. To make the sign-up process as easy as possible for adult volunteers and parents, we have created a Parent Portal, the first phase of which will allow parents to request summer training opportunities for their child.

Commanding Officers and Commanding Officer Training Contingents will have the ability to review and approve or decline the request online. We are thrilled about this -- we hope you will be too! Here is the timing of the roll-out.

  • Week of 21 MAR: Training video for adult volunteers & parents will be provided

  • 26 MAR: Live training for COTCs during COTC Conference (St. Louis, MO)

  • 29 MAR: 9am EST - Parent portal goes live; attend the 7pm EST webinar* training for parents.

  • 30 MAR: Live Q&A webinar* for adult volunteers, attend the 7 p.m. EST webinar.
