  • Mission statement

    The Sea Cadets is a nationwide voluntary youth organisation, open to young people aged 12 to 18 and with Junior Sections open to those of 10 to 12 years of age, run by enthusiastic adult volunteers.

    The Sea Cadets is primarily a training organisation, offering many activities which young people can become involved in. These are divided into three categories.

    Firstly, a Cadet can specialise in any number of 'Specialisations' Seamanship, Communications, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Cooks and Stewards, Writers and Stores, Physical Training and First Aid. The courses often contain recognised qualifications, giving our Cadets an edge whatever they choose to do in life.

    Secondly, Cadets can also choose to study a number of Proficiencies - meteorology, expedition training, target shooting, climbing and mountaineering are all on offer at Crawley, and many of our Cadets take up more than one.

    Lastly (and by far the most popular) we offer canoeing and boat work, training on everything from dinghies on the river to offshore power boats. The Corps follows the British Canoe Union (BCU) and Royal Yachting Association (RYA) training schemes, and our Cadets have plenty of opportunities to take exams and courses.

    The Royal Navy supports the Sea Cadet Corps in many of these activities. RN Establishments around the country host many of the training courses and provide resources, which Units (and the general public) do not normally have access to.

    Crawley Sea Cadets will teach you about boating and the naval way of life, but it will also teach you teamwork, comradeship and a range of life skills that will stay with you forever
