Through a partnership with the ONR, USNSCC continued to
support SeaPerch training and competition for more than 100
units across the country with nearly 3,000 cadets participating.
Five Sea Cadet teams qualified and participated at the national
competition in spring 2016. One of the teams from Southern
California placed first nationally.
USNSCC participated in CyberPatriot, an innovative cyber
education program created by the Air Force Association and
sponsored by Northrop Grumman. It is designed to teach cyber
security and computer science security practices to middle-and high-school students.
This program includes a tournament-style tiered structure
with a series of online competition rounds culminating in a live
national championship. Under a Memorandum of Agreement
signed in 2012, USNSCC participation continued in 2016 with
28 teams competing. Of them, two teams moved on to the
national finals competition. The Centurion Battalion team from
Florida was the national champion for the All-Service Division.
The team members were awarded individual scholarships from
Northrop Grumman and National Security Agency. Registration
for CyberPatriot IX opened in April, and the USNSCC continues
its participation with 51 teams registered.
The Congressional Military Youth Programs Caucus, an
effort between the NSCC and the Young Marines, co-chaired by
Rep. Madeleine Bordallo, D-Guam, and Rep. Duncan Hunter,
R-Calif., continued with a caucus event held in March. The
caucus currently has more than 20 members and was created
to educate its members about the organizations, advocate for
continued congressional support and ensure that the programs
thrive well into the future.
The NSCC published its 10th issue of Sea Cadet Quarterly,
which is a headquarters-produced publication that focuses on
stories and photos from cadets and volunteers. The publication
serves as a valuable recruiting and community outreach tool.
It is available digitally with print copies being sent to a large
group of program supporters, including contacts on Capitol
Hill, media groups and members of the armed services.
The USNSCC offers a modest scholarship program to promote strong performance and assist cadets in defraying the
costs of higher education. Since 1975, more than $575,000 has
been awarded to more than 300 cadets who received NSCC college scholarships.
Navy League councils also sponsor approximately 300
Navy and Marine Corps Junior ROTC programs and more
than 45 ROTC programs at colleges and universities. The
Navy League has established a “Youth Medal” to recognize
outstanding JROTC cadets in units or schools sponsored by a
Navy League council.
The Navy League supports the NJROTC’s two major
national competitions: the NJROTC National Academics,
Athletics & Drill Championships, traditionally held each year
in Pensacola, Fla., and the NJROTC area managers’ evaluation
of the overall performance of the units in their 11 respective
areas, from which “Most Outstanding in Nation” and “Most
Improved in Nation” units are chosen. The Navy League provides all of the various awards; more than 100 in all, for both

STATEMENT OF POLICY
n;We of the Navy League of the United States stand for a strong
America — a nation morally, economically, and internally strong.
n;We believe that the security of our nation and of the peo-
ple of the world demands a well-balanced, integrated, mobile
American defense team, of which a strong Navy, Marine Corps,
make its appropriate contribution to the national security.
n We know that in a free nation an informed public is indispensable
to national security and, therefore, we will strive to keep the nation
alert to dangers which threaten — both from without and within.
n We favor appropriations for each of the Armed Services, ade-
quate for national security, economically administered.
n We oppose any usurpation of the Congress’s consti-
tutional authority over the Armed Services.
n We urge that our country maintain world leader-
ship in scientific research and development.
n We support industrial preparedness, planning, production.
n We support efforts of our government to achieve world-
wide peace through international cooperation.
n We advocate a foreign policy which will avoid
wars — if possible; if not, win them!
