New US Naval Sea Cadet KItsap Battalion Website

USNSCCCheck out the revised US Naval Sea Cadet KItsap Battalion Website.

THE USNSCC

The United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) is one of the finest youth organizations in the nation. The NSCC, or just Sea Cadets, is comprised of two programs. THE US NAVAL SEA CADET CORPS (USNSCC) is for young Americans between the ages of 13 and 17 years of age. New Cadets may join at 13 and stay a Sea Cadet until December 31st of the year they turn 18, or until graduation from High School. THE NAVY LEAGUE CADET CORPS (USNLCC) is for young Americans between the ages of 11 and 13.

Sea Cadet organizations exist in most of the maritime nations of the world. Recognizing the value of these organizations in educating youth in maritime matters, the Department of the Navy requested the Navy League of the United States to establish a similar program for American youth. The Navy League agreed to do so and formally established the Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) and Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC) in 1958.

The basic objectives of both programs are:

(1) to help young Americans become more patriotic and responsible citizens;

(2) to help young Americans understand the role of the maritime services in national defense and in maintaining the economic viability of our nation.

THE KITSAP BATTALION

The Kitsap Battalion drills every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month (with some off Saturdays as well) and has the unique opportunity to drill not only at our drill hall at Naval Undersea Warfare Center, Keyport, WA, but also on the USS Turner Joy in downtown Bremerton, WA. Our typical drill day is from 0900-1600 (9am-4pm) which can consist of anything from shipboard fire drills, to room clearing and hostage rescue training, but also honor guard and Close Order Drill training (Marching). Each summer, the cadets from our unit go to 2-Week-Trainings all over the United States as well as overseas. They have the option to train in any aspect of the naval community that they may choose, which can include anything from music, to Special Warfare.
