We are building Leaders of character.
Visiting us may possibly be the best decision you will make as a young adult. The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) dates back to 1958 when the Navy League of the United States wanted to "create a favorable image of the Navy on the part of the American youth". Since that time the program has grown to over 380 units and approximately 9,000 young men and women ages 10-17.
The Barque Eagle Division has been working with local youth since January of 1973, and we continue to grow. Our goal is to give our youth a chance to; experience the Navy and Coast Guard way of life, develop strong moral principles, good citizenship and confidence.
We have many resources to review on this website. If you think our program sounds like something you would like to experience, our membership link is for you. It could be life changing.

Even though our in-person drill activities have been suspended we do not have to be inactive.
You may not be able to complete the run but you can work on push-ups and sit-ups. If you are so lucky to have a stationary bike or treadmill you can work on cardio. If you do not, consider a guided routine, like shadow boxing or other prerecorded routines. There are a number of training centers offering free online classes. I am happy to help you find resources. For PRT information and documents go to the Cadet Exercise Chart which can be found on the left menu bar. Scroll down to Cadet Resources. https://barque-eagle-seacadets.org/cadet-excercise-chart
Each one of you should be completing coursework. There is nothing to stop you from working ahead. Contact the Command if you are ready for an exam. If you do not have coursework that needs to be completed, then head over the Sea Cadets Virtual Academy. There are many interesting courses and resources at the Virtual Academy site.
The CO and I have been discussing alternatives for training. We are working to develop a plan to make our FTX more engaging. Planning is taking place for the event the rest of the drill season is secured to make that time valuable to our Cadets.
