New Cadet Onboarding (NCO) General Information

NEXT SESSIONS:

Info Session 1- October 17 at 9:00 AM

Info Session 2- October at 11:00 AM

NCO Drill - October 24 at 7:45 AM

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, new cadets are entered in our XRAY Platoon for a period of three drills. During those three drills, cadets can ask questions, learn basic military courtesies, essential drill/parade moves, get fitted for uniforms, and learn other fundamental information about the Sea Cadets to help them join the regular unit with confidence. On the third drill, the cadets will be issued their full uniforms and graduate, then be assigned and welcomed into their Platoons in the unit. 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. 

If you cannot attend the Info Session, please contact our Recruiting Officer directly to schedule a call.
