USNSCC Haven Division and USNLCC Training Ship Hamilton

Welcome to the US Naval Sea Cadets in San Pedro and Long Beach, California . The Cadet Corps program at Haven Division includes two separate units: The Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) Haven Division and the Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC) Training Ship Hamilton. 

About Us

USNSCC is comprised of two programs. The Naval Sea Cadet Corps (NSCC) program is for young people ages 13 through 17. Also included under the USNSCC umbrella is our junior program the Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC), for young people ages 11 through 13. 

We are sponsored by the Navy League of the United States and supported by both the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard.

The Goals of Our Cadet Program

At the request of the Department of the Navy, the Navy League of the United States established the USNSCC in 1958 to "create a favorable image of the Navy on the part of American youth". 

Today's U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps continues to further the image of our maritime services by adhering to a standardized training program designed to:

  1. Develop an interest and ability in seamanship and seagoing skills.
  2. Instill virtues of good citizenship and strong moral principles in each cadet.
  3. Demonstrate the value of an alcohol-free, drug-free and gang-free lifestyle.
  4. Expose cadets to the prestige of public service and a variety of career paths through hands-on training with our nation's armed services.
