Twin Ports Division of the U.S. Navy Cadets, is currently seeking recruits between the ages of 13 and 17 and not yet a senior in High School. All potential sailors must be able to pass a physical that can be done by any licensed physician. The Navy Cadet Corps is also compliant with all ADA laws. Where a medical condition precludes full-duty status, a Request for Accommodation (NSCADM 001) may be presented by the parent or guardian for review so the recruit may conduct operations to the maximum extent possible. Unfortunately, these conditions will more than likely prevent transfer to active duty, in any branch, after the successful completion of their enlistment at cadet status.
Cadets are required to report to drill, one weekend per month, year-round, and report to at least one two week training (TWT) annually. All recruits are required to successfully complete boot camp before their first training. Upon completing Boot Camp, they will be eligible to attend all advanced trainings anywhere in the country/globe in their desired career fields. All sailors are REQUIRED to remain in Navy physical fitness standards during their enlistment. Those that fail their Physical Readiness Tests repeatedly will be discharged. Members must also remain drug-free during their enlistment. Drug screenings do occur. The Navy has a "Zero Tolerance" drug policy. Those that test positive will have an other than honorable discharge.
During TWT's/AT's, there is a multitude of choices for training such as SEAL, Diver, Field Operations, Music, Culinary Arts, Jag and Navy Legal, Seabee, aviation and Medical just to name a few. This is literally just the tip of the iceberg. If you wish to find out more trainings, contact us, and let us know what you would like to do and we will let you know if there are any trainings to fit your interest and military occupation codes. Besides training you will earn a multitude of benefits during your service. Money for college, world travel, learn trades and skills, transfer to active duty at a higher paygrade (Up to E-3) on the enlisted side and academy recommendations for officers, active duty certs and quals that ALL transfer if you do, become Navy first aid and shipboard firefighting qualified within your first year.
We invite you to attend and shadow a drill weekend and discover if the military is right for you. We ask that the prospective recruit bring at least one member of immediate family to their first drill. (i.e. parent/guardian) There, we will conduct indoc which involves a 30-45 minute powerpoint. You will also be given forms for joining if you haven't received them already. Even if you are on the fence about joining, we recommend getting started on the forms right away to avoid processing delays. Pages 5 & 6 MUST be filled out by your doctor. After indoc, the parent can leave and the prospective recruit will be assigned to one of our senior enlisted to shadow them as a UI for the drill weekend. Once the prospective recruit has completed being UI (Under Instruction) observing a drill weekend both Saturday and Sunday, they can make their decision to join that same Sunday and will be sworn in and take the oath of enlistment.
