What is Navy League Cadets?

NLCC Admiral Stirling is a Navy League Cadet Corps where boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 12 experience adventure and discovery. Navy League Cadets come from many different backgrounds, but they all share a common interest: Making Friends and Having Fun! We meet every Friday evening, and occasionally on weekends for special activities or trips.

At Navy League Cadets, you will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities and learn many new skills, which include Sailing and Kayaking, Seamanship and Ropework, Marching and Precision Drill Teams, Naval Terminology, Air Rifle Safety & Marksmanship, and Map & Compass. We also instill community spirit into young people, and give them a sense of duty. Values such as self-discipline, self-confidence, and respect for others, that they can still apply long after they’ve left the cadet world.

In Navy League Cadets, you will have lots of opportunities to make new friends, be active, learn interesting things, become a leader, and most importantly: HAVE FUN!
