“The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps is comprised of two programs. The Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC) is the junior program for young people ages 10 through 13. The Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) is the senior program for young people ages 13 through 17.

The NLCC and the NSCC programs are similar, but vary in that their training sessions are tailored to be age-appropriate. “

New USNSCC Regulations

USNSCC Volunteers:

NHQ is at the beginning of a long project intended to reduce and simplify our policy guidance – we have too much of it, it’s found in too many different places, it tends to be redundant, and sometimes it even conflicts with itself.

Our first step was to re-write the NSCC and NLCC Regulations and merge them into one document, the “USNSCC Regulations.”  This is the first complete re-write in more than 20 years.  The new USNSCC Regulations were approved by the Board of Directors in June, and go into effect on September 1st, 2017.  In order to give you a chance to familiarize yourself with the new Regs before they take effect, they have been posted on Homeport:

Changes to the Regs also necessitated minor changes to the Administration Manual and the Training & Operations Manual.  Those changes will also go into effect on September 1st, and will be posted at that time.   Changes to the NSCADM 001 and NSCADM 002 have already been posted.

Please read the new USNSCC Regulations in their entirety, along with the Letter of Promulgation, which outlines the major changes.  You’ll also find FAQs posted on Homeport; after you have read all of the supporting material, please forward any questions up the chain of command.

Thank you for everything you do for our Cadets,

David Hull
