What is the Navy Sea Cadet Corps?
THE NAVAL SEA CADET CORPS (NSCC) IS THE SENIOR PROGRAM FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AGES 13 THROUGH 17.
The senior cadet program exposes its cadets to the full rigors of a military training program. Cadets are required to attend a mandatory two-week recruit training camp. After this requirement is met, cadets are eligible to participate in a variety of advanced training sessions. These sessions serve to expose cadets to seamanship and seagoing subjects. They also focus on developing an appreciation for our country’s rich naval history, customs and traditions.
As a part of training, cadets of the Lexington Division will generally meet monthly for drill exercises which may consist of physical training, classroom training, off-site activities, and various community service opportunities. Upcoming drill information will be located on this page of the website under Plan of the Month.
Monthly Drill Attendance: In order to get the most out of your USNSCC experience, regular attendance at drill is mandatory. Cadets must maintain a 75% attendance rate. If cadets fall below 75% attendance they may be administratively separated from the division.
The monthly Plan of the Month (POM) announcement will be posted at least two weeks prior to drill and will include all scheduling, gear requirements, and various changes from drill to drill. It is the cadet’s responsibility to read and adhere to the Plan of the Month each drill.
