League Cadet 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.
Preparing for Recruit Training (Boot Camp)
Before you attend Recruit Training (RT), there are a few things you need to know. It is best to start learning those items now. Learning these will help your RT to be a more beneficial and enjoyable experience
- Read and understand the Recruit Training Welcome Letter (link is for RTIL Great Lakes). Everything you need to know about Recruit Training in contained in the Letter. Read it carefully.
- Although all cadets are encouraged to get their Basis Military Requirement (BMRs) done, at the VERY LEAST cadets should complete assignments 1, 5, 6, 9, and 10 prior to reporting to RT.
- Study and learn the Navy and NSCC Rates and Ranks. Know how to identify them; who and how to salute.
- Learn the Phonetic Alphabet.
- Learn Military time.
- Know the Sailor's Creed
- Know the 11 General Orders of the Sentry
- Know the the words and melody to Anchors Aweigh (verse 2, revised)
- Know the Core Values of the Navy, Marine Corps, and the US Naval Sea Cadet Corps: Honor, Courage, and Commitment.
- Start breaking in your footwear now. The number one reason why cadet recruits fail to complete training is improper foot gear.
- Bring EVERYTHING on the Sea Bag List and only what is on the list! Please look over the Recruit Training Welcome Letter.for specific Sea Bag requirements for 2015 Recruit Training.
- Start getting in shape now. Start running, doing push-ups, sit-ups, and stretching now. You will feel more comfortable those first few days.
- Spend some time outdoors prior to going to RT. Get used to the heat or the cold depending on the season.
- Most importantly. HAVE FUN! You will come out with some really great experiences. Do your very best and time will fly. You will make new friends that will last a lifetime.
We will conduct a Seabag Inspection in May, so that anything missing can be obtained in time for trainings.
