About Us

The Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC) is the junior program for young people ages 10-13. This junior cadet program introduces its members to naval life through instruction in basic seamanship and leadership. NLCC members are able to participate in monthly drill sessions and during orientation class as well as in specially-designed annual training sessions. The purpose of the NLCC program is to prepare its cadets for success upon entering NSCC by exposing them to the fundamentals of seamanship and leadership.

Most units meet (drill) one weekend per month, 6 to 8 hours per day; others may choose to meet every Saturday. In order to comply with Sea Cadet regulations, units must drill a minimum amount of hours each month. Col Lewis L Millett Division drills typically one weekend per month with additional drills based on the calendar of events.

Weekend drills are sometimes held off base for camping, rock climbing, weapons safety training, parades, a trip to a Navy ship, community service, and more.
