Steps to Joining the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps
- Contact Unit - Fill out the form above to get in contact with us! We will contact applicants via phone within 24 hours.
- First Contact - We will text and call you to set up a screening call. We must perform initial screening calls for all applicants into our Program to ensure they meet the basic requirements (like age, location, and future aspirations) to join our Program. If no contact is received within 14 days, we remove applicants from our applicant pool.
- Shadow Day - After the screening call, we will invite applicants to attend our next Shadow Day! It is our "good faith" gesture to applicants for them to come and try us out for a day, no strings attached. This is also meant to help us determine if the applicant is a good fit for our Program. Shadow Day happens on the same day as drills do. Here, applicants run through the full rigors of being a new member of our unit!
- Decide to Join - After attending Shadow Day, applicants should think over whether the Program aligns with their future goals. The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps is unlike any other youth program where what you put into our Program is what you will get out of it. We are steeped in professionalism, integrity, and a constant commitment to excellence and expect no less from our applicants!
- Enrollment Forms - Once applicants have made the decision to join our Program, they can start the enrollment process immediately by filling out our enrollment form (Click Here to View Our Enrollment Form). Enrollment requires a sports-type physical by a doctor (Pages 5&6), a copy of your Immunization Record, and copy of the front and back of your insurance card. We are here to answer any questions you have while filling this out.
- Enrollment Fees - Scholarships are available! We believe that cost should never be a barrier to joining our Program! (Click Here to see our Cost Sheet) The New Cadet Enrollment Fee is $350 and every year there after, re-enrollment fees are $125. The enrollment packet and enrollment fees must be submitted together on the day applicants enroll into our Program.
- Welcome Aboard! - After submitting the enrollment forms and fees, you are now a part of the finest youth program in the nation! All benefits and opportunities are available for you to achieve if you work hard to earn them!
