What is Navy League Cadets?
The Navy League Cadet program offers Canada's youth a wide selection of opportunities, and provides them with the proper naval training required should they decide to move up to Sea Cadets (which caters to young adults between the ages of 12 and 19), or even later in life should they decide to join the Navy. They are taught various subjects related to the Navy, such as Seamanship, first aid and canoeing, and participate in various activities and events within the community, including Remembrance Day Parades and Canada Day celebrations.
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 canoeing, 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. Many shy and withdrawn young people have joined Navy League, and have later turned out to be exemplary leaders. several other activities and community events, such as Military Commemorative Parades, Weekend Camps, Formal Mess Dinners, Seasonal Parties, Wake-A-Thons, Skating & Swimming, and much much more.
In Navy League Cadets, you will have lots of opportunities to make new friends, play sports, go on trips, go camping, go sailing, learn interesting things and most importantly: HAVE FUN!
