As a Sea Cadet you will test your talents and stamina and develop new skills to give you a head start in life. You will also get the chance to make new friends and have fun.

You can join us as a cadet if you are 10-18. Visit the main Sea Cadet site to see a full range of what's on offer.

How to Join the Sea Cadets

To join the Sea Cadets just pop on down to the unit on a Tues or Thurs between 1830 and 2100 and talk to our very friendly staff who will be happy to show you around and answer any questions.

New cadets between 10-11 go straight in a join the junior section of our unit with 2 dedicated staff members who will look after them until they turn 12.

New cadets who are 12 and over make the same first step to go through the New Entry Training; which will introduce them to many areas of The Sea Cadets. This period is spent with other young people interested in joining and a dedicated member of staff will look after the new cadet and ensure that there are no problems. Towards the end of the New Entry Training the cadet is issued uniform and on the enrolment night the new cadet makes their Sea Cadet promise to become a full member of the Sea Cadets. Parents are invited to the enrolment ceremony and this is an excellent opportunity to gain some photographs for the family album!
