As a prospective cadet or new parent - we know
that you have many questions and concerns about the
Fear not - Each an every adult leader in the Sacramento
Division has one goal. The success of your child
and the desire to build strong young adults!

obligates your child to join the military.

(below) and we will send you more information (with
absolutely NO obligation)
Just show up at our next
6037 Price Ave
- North Highlands, CA.

Guard Air Station, Sacramento.

Cadets want you!!!
If you are a U.S. Citizen (boy or girl) between the ages of 10
and 17 and are looking for an adventure, the
Sacramento Sea Cadets / Navy League Cadets is
the place for you!!
(Note: Sea Cadets
ages 14-17 and League Cadets ages 10-13)
You will get "once in the lifetime
opportunities" to wear the Sea Cadet uniform, go
places and do things that normally are only
available to adults in the Navy and all the
while, making friends and learning things they
don't teach in school. For those of you truly
interested in joining the Navy later, you will
get a "leg up" on your peers with advanced rate
increases and coursework. If you are not
interested in joining the military, (or maybe
just curious) but still interested in Naval
traditions, ships and all the excitement that
comes your way, involvement in the Cadets
- looks great on a college application.
There is NO commitment to military service.
We "drill" twice a month (normally on the third
full weekend of each month) learning and playing
- always under adult supervision and guided by
our core values - "Honor, Courage and
Commitment". Sure, there are study
requirements in order to advance, but the
knowledge gained will serve you well in life and
can be applied to any path you may choose.
During the school year we take weekend
excursions, we march in parades and take field
trips to exciting regional destinations.
Then there are the summer training camps....
Imagine yourself in a real boot camp for two
weeks at one of many regional Recruit
Trainings available across the country.
After you complete boot camp - the fun really
gets started! There are literally dozens
of opportunities every summer (and over winter
break) guaranteed to fit your interests.
Trainings like Advanced Airman, Scuba, Field
Training, Master At Arms (police), Sailing,
Hospital Corpsman or Medical Training, Explosive
Ordinance Disposal or even SEAL Training. So
what are you waiting for?
you need to join: ask your parents, discuss and
get permission. Once you have discussed the
commitments - contact, us at firstname.lastname@example.org and
we will schedule an enrollment interview.
