Sheffield Sea Cadets (known by it's unit name, T.S. Sheffield) is part of a natiowide network of Sea Cadet units which has been giving young people training, skills and experiences on a naval theme since since the first unit was established in 1854 at the seaside town of Whitestable in Kent.

Traditionally old seafarers provided training while local businessmen funded the Unit Headquarters. Today, ex-military and civilian instructors provide cadets with a wide variety of training courses and give cadets the chance to compete in major competitions, go on offshore sailing voyages, represent their unit at parades and much more.

The tradition of community - based Sea Cadet Units continues today with 400 across the UK each with charitable status enabling them to raise funds to meet their running costs. All Units are members of the Sea Cadet Corps and are governed by the national charity MSSC - the Marine Society & Sea Cadets.
