The first Sea Cadet unit was established in 1854 at Whitstable in Kent, created by communities wanting to give young people instruction on a naval theme. Traditionally old seafarers provided training while local businessmen funded the Unit Headquarters.

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.

We work partnership with the Royal Navy under a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and receive corporate support from commercial shipping companies and the Maritime sector. Our core purpose is to celebrate Britain's maritime heritage and contribute to its future development by supporting young people as Sea Cadets.

Huddersfield Sea Cadets

Huddersfield Sea Cadets was first opened in 1941 and still continues to provide young people aged 10-18 with training based on the traditions of the Royal Navy.

Huddersfield Unit has a Junior Cadet section (10-12 years) and a Senior Cadet section (12-18 years)

Junior Section

The Junior Sea Cadets take part in a wide range of activities including sailing, fieldcraft/expedition training, team games and much more! As a Junior Sea Cadet you will get your own uniform to wear on a parade night and be able to earn badges to show off the skills you have learnt. We guarantee you'll have lots of fun and make some great friends!

Senior Section

As a Senior Cadet you will first complete 6-8 weeks of New Entry training, designed to give you the skills for the best head start in the Sea Cadets! Senior Cadets are provided with two uniforms. A working uniform for general wear during parade nights and other training, and a best uniform for ceremonial wear. These uniforms are very closely based on that of the Royal Navy.
Senior Cadets take part in many activities such as shooting, sailing, canoeing, power boating. There is also the opportunity to learn valuable skills such as first aid, leadership skills and team building.
