What We Do

We assist young men and women in developing a sense of pride and positive patriotism. We push them to discover and develop  their own self-reliance, courage, teamwork, and self-confidence. We strive to inspire our cadets to be the best they can be in their, character, morals, and every other aspect of their lives. We encourage cadets to explore and develop a greater interest and skill in seamanship and aviation. We aim to teach an appreciation for Naval traditions, history, and if a cadet were to choose to join the military, their role in our national defense. As well as, the necessary skills and advanced placement for those wishing to start a career in the Navy, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Army, or Merchant Marines.

Who We Are

 The United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps is the only federally-sponsored nationwide youth association within the Department of Defense. It is a  federally chartered 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization, sponsored by the Navy League of the United States and supported by the Department of the Navy and the U.S. Coast Guard. The Coast Guard went on to designate the Sea Cadets as their primary youth program. It also offers preliminary training for the US Navy, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Merchant Marine, and provides direct entrance assistance to all the service academies and for Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) candidates.

​Warrior Division is part of the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps. We are sponsored by the Atlanta Metro Navy League Council. Located in Douglasville, Georgia we welcome and support all cadets ages 10-17 to join us. The Navy League Cadet Corps are for youth ages 10,11,12 while those 13-17 are part of the Naval Sea Cadet Corps.

We see diversity as our strength, and this has ensured that we've been an operational unit for more than 12 years. Our team has a great wealth of experience and know that, despite the complexity of the training process, there should be no miscommunication between the unit, the cadet or the parent.  We aim to be clear and easy to understand.
