REQUIREMENTS TO JOIN
A medical examination, similar to a high school sports physical, is required for all Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) and Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC) applicants. No application will be denied due to a medical disability. If medical conditions preclude 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.
There is an initial enrollment fee of $200. Cadets must purchase their own Sea Cadet PT (gym) gear.
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 participate with a waiver from NHQ considering the parameters of their expected contribution to the NSCC program. Adults are also required to provide their immunization records to participate in the unit.
We meet one weekend per month (usually the second weekend every month), year-round. Cadets must attend at least 75% of all meetings (called “Drills”).
The Henry E. Mooberry Division of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps is based at the Washington Navy Yard, in DC.
Our members come from Richmond, VA to Baltimore, MD; Winchester, VA to Bowie and LaPlata, MD; and Washington, DC.
SAFE, SECURE ENVIRONMENT:
Our Leadership Development Center (classrooms and offices) is located at the historic Washington Navy Yard, in DC's Ward 6, six blocks north of the Washington Nationals baseball park in southeast D.C., near the Navy Yard Metro station, and along the Circulator/other bus routes.
