As a part of training, cadets of the squadron will generally meet monthly for drill exercises which may consist of physical training, classroom training, off-site activities, and various community service opportunities. Upcoming drill information will be located on this page of the website under Plan of the Month.

Cadets will typically spend the weekend from 0800 to 1600, Saturday and Sunday.

The monthly Plan of the Month (POM) announcement will be posted at lease two weeks prior to drill and will include all scheduling, gear requirements, and various changes from drill to drill.  It is the cadet's responsibility to read and adhere to the Plan of the Month each drill. 



Uniforms are issued as soon as possible after paid membership.  Under no circumstances will an incomplete or improper uniform be allowed to be worn during drill.  Cadets with improper uniforms will either be sent home or put into PT gear.  Additionally, improper or incomplete uniforms shall not be worn in public or at the Utah Military Academy.  



Many ribbons can be earned while in the Sea Cadet Corps.  Some examples are:

  • Academic Achievement

  • Community Service

  • Physical Fitness

  • Marksman

  • Drug Reduction

  • Staff Cadet

  • Color Guard

In order to advance, cadets must attend Recruit Training (RT), which must be completed within the cadet's first year.  In order to attend RT, cadets must complete the Basic Military Requirements (BMR) course.  This is done on their own or with the help of an adult.  The BMR is designed for adult learning, so assistance from a parent or older cadet is recommended.
