WHO ARE THE SEA CADETS?
Simply the best - that's
the Sea Cadets, the number one youth charity based on Britain's Senior
Service - the Royal Navy.
And right here in your local unit we can really make your day with an action
packed programme from boating and sailing to canoeing, sports and adventure
training. You'll make new friends and be part of a great team.
WHAT WE AIM TO DO
Give you the best fun
you've ever had - with a serious side too. Along the way we'll teach
you life skills from computers to cookery, engineering, navigation and the
art of seamanship.
TRAINING- GET FIT THE FUN WAY
Fit for Life. There are sports and outdoor activities to get involved
in and you will be able to impress your friends with newfound skills, make
new shipmates and put your talent to the test. And there are plenty of
opportunities to get away from it all by taking a trip on a real Royal Naval
warship, sail before the mast aboard the Sea Cadets square-rigged flagship TS
Royalist or fly in a Navy helicopter. With 400 units nation-wide, the
Sea Cadets offers plenty of scope to see other parts of the country and hone
your skills on a specialist courses at our regional training centres.
THERE'S LOADS TO
DO- THE CHOICE IS YOURS
When you drop in at your local Sea Cadet Unit you'll find lots
of friendly faces waiting to welcome you aboard. The officers and instructors
are all highly trained to make sure you enjoy every aspect of Sea Cadet life
- a cut above the local youth club. If you like what you see and you're
aged 12-18, you can join as a Cadet and start learning the Navy way of life,
earning promotion up to Cadet Petty Officer, really the tops! Most
units have junior sections for 10-12 year olds to get you started or if
you're over 13 you could opt for the Marine Cadet Detachment and get to grips
with the commando skills of the Royal Marines. So if you're bored with
computer games and TV, why not try a taste of the real thing.
Don't miss out on a chance to make the most of your quality time - get
a bit of the action.
