About Our Unit
Our unit was commissioned in 2007 and is proud to be celebrating 15 years serving the youth of upstate New York.
U.S. Naval Sea Cadet and League Cadet Corps
The Naval Sea Cadet and League Cadet Corps are for American youth ages 10-17 who have a desire to learn about the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine. Sea Cadets are authorized by the Secretary of the Navy to wear Navy uniforms appropriately marked with the Sea Cadet Corps insignia. The objectives of the Sea Cadet program are to introduce youth to naval life, to develop in them a sense of pride, patriotism, courage, and self-reliance, and to maintain an environment free of drugs and gangs.
Our cadets are instructed by both Sea Cadet Officers, active duty military and senior cadets through classroom and applied instruction in subjects such as basic seamanship, military drill, and leadership. Our unit also participates in Sea Cadet regional weekend competitions where units compete with each other to test their seamanship and military skills.
