IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:

ALL INFO SESSIONS FOR MARCH HAVE BEEN CANCELED IN-PERSON AND WILL BE ONLINE INSTEAD AND NEW CADET ONBOARDING HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR APRIL 18TH, 2020 

All those signed up for the March 14th or March 16th Info Sessions - we will be holding a Facebook Live session at 10:00 AM Saturday, March 14th and conducting the session virtually in lieu of an in-person session. We will hold one live stream broadcast during which you can ask questions in the comments.  If you cannot attend at that time, you can watch it later at your convenience.  We will not be holding a second live session for the Monday signups - all those registered for the March 16th session can go back and watch the broadcast.  We will be giving you background on the USNSCC as an organization, a tour of the unit offices, how our drills work, what your child can expect in the program and what our expectations are of your child (and you, as parents). We recommend printing out the entire application package below to have in front of you for when we discuss it.  We will also mail out to you a measurement sheet to measure your child for a uniform (something we would normally have done with you in person).  We will make any corrections to the uniform when we fit them in person but doing the measurement sheet in advance will help us to make sure we have sufficient inventory. If you have any questions not answered in our live broadcast, please text me at the number below to set up a time to talk. 

 

To participate in the session, you will need to go and make a friend request to our Facebook account here - https://www.facebook.com/fdrtsroosevelt.squadronnasjax. (Or search "FD Roosevelt Sea Cadets" in Facebook to find our account).

 

We apologize for the change in circumstances but we will work to make your "virtual Info Session" just as informative as the one held in person!  

 

Because our other drills are being suspended until after the originally scheduled New Cadet Onboarding drill date of April 04 - we will be holding the RESCHEDULED New Cadet Onboarding drill on Saturday, April 18th, the date of our next regularly scheduled drill past our 30 day suspension period. We will discuss this drill and send details on the Facebook Live event and also send out instructions for reporting to you by separate email after the Info Session.

 

Thank you all for your patience and understanding in a highly unusual situation for our organization. The safety of our unit and those people who may come in contact with members of our unit are of utmost importance.  You many also visit  www.seacadets.org/covid19 for more information on how the USNSCC is responding to the situation.

Respectfully, 

INST Margaret Dees, Recruiting & Admin Officer

New Cadet Onboarding (NCO) General Information

FD Roosevelt Squadron holds approximately 4-5 New Cadet Onboarding ("NCO") Drills per year.  NCO drills offer our new cadets the opportunity to have the best opportunity for success in the unit.  At NCO, cadets can ask questions, learn basic military courtesies, essential drill/parade moves, get fitted for uniforms, and learn other fundamental information to help them join the regular unit with confidence.  There is a formal graduation ceremony and swearing ceremony for each NCO Cohort.

 

To attend an NCO, a prospective cadet must have attended an Info Session and have all indicated application and supplemental paperwork completed and have paid their enrollment fee.
