‚ÄčThe United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) is a nationwide organization dedicated to helping American youth realize personal success and achievement through a nautically oriented training program.  The USNCC is comprised of two programs. The Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) program is for young people ages 13 through the completion of high school.  Also included under the USNSCC umbrella is our junior program the Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC), for young people ages 10 through 13. 

At the request of the Department of the Navy, the Navy League of the United States established the USNSCC in 1962 to create a favorable image of the Navy on the part of American youth. 

Today's U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps continues to further the image of our maritime services by adhering to a standardized training program designed to:

  1. Develop an interest and ability in seamanship and seagoing skills
  2. Instill virtues of good citizenship and strong moral principles in each cadet
  3. Demonstrate the value of an alcohol-free, drug-free and gang-free lifestyle
  4. Expose cadets to the prestige of public service and a variety of career paths through hands-on training with our nation's armed services

Our Unit, US Naval Sea Cadets Point Mugu, was founded in 1982 with our NSCC Squadron Trident Patrol 65.  In 1997, we added our NLCC Squadron Training Ship, Minutemen.  We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization sponsored by the Navy League of Channel Islands.
