|Since 1958 the Naval Sea Cadet Corps has been committed to providing American youth with a drug and alcohol free
environment to foster their leadership abilities, broaden their horizons through hands-on training and guide them to becoming
mature young adults.
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. Recognizing the importance and benefits of the
NSCC, Congress on September 10, 1962 federally incorporated the Naval Sea Cadet Corps under Public Law 87-655 (36
Today, the NSCC has formed partnerships with organizations such as the Foundation for Teaching Economics and the
Flying Midshipman Association to offer cadets broader opportunities in areas of leadership and aviation. The NSCC also
took an active part in the creation of the International Sea Cadet Association (ISCA). The ISCA is an association of Sea
Cadet Corps' from around the world, whose main objective is to facilitate exchanges of cadets between member countries.
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.
