The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) is a non-profit youth program for Americans ages 11 through 17. We are composed of more than 380 units in 48 states, Guam and Puerto Rico. We provide compelling, life-changing programs that instill the values of teamwork, leadership skills, discipline, camaraderie and service through our passionate all-volunteer force and our partnerships with our nation’s armed forces.
We are the Tampa Division of the NSCC and U.S. Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC). USNSCC is a fun, challenging program that offers unique experiences and exposure to the sea services.
Naval Sea Cadets Corps pursue a variety of activities including classroom, practical and hands-on training as well as field trips, orientation visits to military installation, and cruises on Navy and Coast Guard ships and small craft. We also participate in a variety of community and civic events.
Our goal is to make a difference in your life and those around you. Don't just stand on the sideline, get engaged in your community!

We Comply with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA)
A medical examination similar to a high school sports physical is required for all cadet applicants to the Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) or Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC). No one will be denied admission to the NSCC/NLCC due to a medical disability. Where a medical condition precludes full, unlimited participation, a Request for Accommodation (NSCADM 015) may be presented by the parent or guardian for review so the cadet may participate in NSCC activities to the maximum extent possible.
Adult applicants must be in good health commensurate with their age group and be free from any ailment or condition that would prevent them from satisfactorily performing their primary duty of supervising youth. NOTE: Adults not physically qualified to perform all duties may still participate with a waiver from NHQ considering the parameters of their expected contribution to the NSCC program.
