Interested in Joining?
American Pride Squadron has openings available for young people who want to learn about our military and are ambitious, self-disciplined, physically motivated, and have strong academic performance. If this sounds like you, then keep reading. Cadets must meet all eligibility requirements including application, parent/cadet interview, medical screening, and payment of required fees.
Cadets Eligibility Requirements - Cadets Must:
A medical examination similar to a high school sports physical is required for all cadet applicants to the Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) or Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC). No one will be denied admission to the NSCC/NLCC due to a medical disability. Where a medical condition precludes full, unlimited participation, a Request for Accommodation (NSCADM 015) may be presented by the parent or guardian for review so the cadet may participate in NSCC activities to the maximum extent possible.
Adult applicants must be in good health commensurate with their age group and be free from any ailment or condition that would prevent them from satisfactorily performing their primary duty of supervising youth. NOTE: Adults not physically qualified to perform all duties may still participate with a waiver from NHQ considering the parameters of their expected contribution to the NSCC program
Additionally, Parents and Cadets Must:
NOTE: Advanced training is not mandatory for any cadet. These training have additional costs.
NLCC Trainings: These are typically one week long and cost $120. NLCC cadets are not required to attend any advanced trainings.
NSCC Trainings: These are typically two weeks long and cost $240. NSCC cadets must attend advanced trainings to advance in rank. Two trainings per year are required to maximize advancement.
