London’s Royal Canadian Sea Cadets Corp (RCSCC) met last night for a march to promote their program and to practice their form.
A parent of one cadet says his daughter switched over from playing sports to joining the cadets after a bad ACL injury. Paul says that his daughter has a huge support system from her fellow cadets giving her the courage for her ACL surgery coming up next week. Her father Paul says that the program is god-sent, teaching her many new hobbies like marksmanship and how to tie knots.
Lieutenant Jason Kobb says that the Navy cadets may not be as well known as the Air cadets, but the program is just as beneficial for your children. Available from ages 12-19 the program is geared to develop kids socially, professionally and help give a proper outlet to learn many skills.
Lieutenant Kobb says the program teaches many important skills like:
- Developing a social circle
“Ever heard of a guy by the name of Chris Hadfield? He started off in cadets. Just goes to show where these kids end up, most of them go on to live very successful lives” ~Lieutenant Jason Kobb
The Navy cadets program is completely free of charge and gives kids the ability to travel and even get paid for their service.
