Welcome Aboard!

US Naval Sea Cadet Corps Manatee Division

We're a program for Americans 11-17 years old who are looking for a challenge and some adventure.  We meet once a month on weekends and learn what it's like to be in the Maritime Services like the Navy or Coast Guard.  You get a chance to see what life is like in the service, get treated like adults, and earn some respect. Learn what it means to have Honor, Courage, and Commitment!

Be sure to find out about the program at: www.seacadets.org

We know that our program isn't for everyone. In fact, we don't
want just anyone to join! We are looking for the people who are looking for us.
We want people who are looking for  a challenge based on the maritime services.

Manatee Division drills at Coast Guard Station Yankeetown, Florida usually on the second weekend of each month. 

Interested in becoming a cadet?  Click the "Join" link up top. Already in Scouts, 4H, Boys and Girls Club, or sports? That's OK, most of our cadets are, too!  Just like in the military, you can have other outside interests and hobbies.  We just give you one more way to have fun, make new friends, and have new challenges.

Due to changes from National Headquarters, our uniform costs have gone up, so this changes our cost of enrollment.  The new enrollment fee is $210.

A big thanks to Rural King in Crystal River for donating a kayak for our raffle!. We had an extremely successful event, raising $1000. 

Thanks to The Florida Sheriff's Youth Ranch Caruth Camp for putting on another great leadership and team building weekend exercise in December!
