Physical Fitness Requirements

As a Naval Sea Cadet Corps/Naval League Cadet Corps member – you are required to meet certain physical fitness requirements, as set forth in the NSCC/NLCC Physical Readiness Manual.
If you cannot meet these, do not let it prevent you from reaching out to us to join. We can help you develop a program to reach your goals.

You MUST be able to meet these to attend Recruit Training.
