League Cadet Orientation Training & Advanced Training
The NLCC training program is modeled after the Sea Cadet program, but is tailored to be age-appropriate. The training program is less arduous, but still includes a wide variety of training opportunities designed to give League Cadets exposure to Navy life.
Cadets can attend a one-week, away-from-home Navy League Orientation class. Cadets who complete orientation can participate in advanced training sessions such as classes in aviation, sailing, leadership, medical and adventure training. League Cadets also learn about small boats and small boat safety using the US Coast Guard’s safe boating curriculum.
While recruit training is designed to familiarize cadets with Navy life and Navy-style discipline, advanced training focuses on military and general career fields and opportunities. It also serves to provide cadets with disciplined and interesting activities during the year.
Training opportunities can be found here. Prior to signing up for any training please notify your chain of command of your intentions.
Physical Readiness Test
Physical Fitness is a requirement of the Sea Cadet Program. In order to attend local and remote training’s, Cadets must pass and maintain minimum physical fitness requirements.
All Sea Cadets participate in PT (Physical Training). It is suggested that all Cadets utilize the NSCC/NLCC PHYSICAL READINESS MANUAL to know what is expected and what goals they should strive to meet. Exceptions are made for those Cadets with medical needs. Below is the PRT chart, as well as the link to swim qualifications, so you can see where you need to be in order to pass or earn a ribbon.
Because The Sea Cadet standards meet a lot of the same standards as the Presidential Physical Fitness Challenge, some Cadets may be eligible for additional ribbons and awards.
