Making It Easy & Fun
or Hard & Painful
for Your Cadet (and you)

There are a few things that you should note right up front that will make things better for everyone:

  • Good, properly sized SHOES (and appropriate socks), including sneakers, unifrom dress, shower flip-flops and especially boots (there is A LOT of marching and running in boots), can make the difference between a great time and a terribly painful time for your cadet! This is listed first for a reason! Get your cadet the right shoes...or keep them home and save them the pain!

  • Don't kid yourself...or us. This training will be the most physically and psychologically demanding and challenging thing your cadet has ever far! Your cadet will have enough to handle with the training alone...don't make their challenge harder.

    • Fully disclose any and ALL medical, psychological or physical conditions or limitations when registering.

    • Anything that could be an issue WILL be an issue under the stress and physical demands of the training. Just because [whatever it is] doesn't bother them in school or gym class, doesn't mean it won't be a will!

    • Do not go away on vacation while your cadet is at Summer Training. Be prepared to come to take your cadet home in the event of a medical or disciplinary issue. It is rare that a cadet needs to go home early, but it happens to at least one or two cadets, for a variety of reasons, during virtually every Training evolution.

  • Absolutely no cell phones or other electronic devices will be permitted for recruits, though they may bring them so that they can communicate with parents before and after training. During training, any cell phones brought will be held in a safe location by staff and returned to the cadet upon graduation.

    • In fact, there is little to no cell phone service available, from any provider, within the Eagle Academy facility to begin with. There is, however, some cell coverage when outside of the building. Keep that in mind for graduation as well.

    • Carrying or use of cell phones by Advanced Training or Staff Cadets may be restricted or eliminated from time-to-time at the discretion of the Senior Staff or Officer.

& Financial
  • Walk-ins or cadets with Local Orders will NOT be accepted into the training and will be sent home immediately upon arrival.

  • Only properly registered cadets who complete the steps below and RECEIVE FINAL ORDERS will be mustered into the training. Just registering on Magellan or submitting payment does NOT complete your registration!!! To complete your registration, you must:

    1. Register and be Confirmed in Magellan (see your Admin or Training Officer)

      1. Medical Training requires TWO Separate Registrations in Magellan (Basic Medical + Advanced Medical) and TWO Separate Payments!!!

    2. NO Registration will be approved without indication
      of each Recruit's or Cadet's Unit Name and T-Shirt Size!!!

    3. Payment can now be made online by credit or debit clicking here and selecting the appropriate Training Program...
      or Send payment (payable to USNSCC Region 6-5, Inc.) to:

      USNSCC Region 6-5

      6963 Wilson Road

      West Palm Beach, FL 33413-2339

    4. Each cadet must have had a physical exam and recent shots record documented and signed by a medical professional within the last year (NSCADM 001, pages 5 and 6).

      • If the physical exam was not within the last 30 days, you'll also need a health history form (NSCADM 001, pages 7 and 8) signed by a parent or legal guardian stating that there have been no changes since the date of the physical exam.

      • The forms or other service jacket documents must indicate that either all shots and vaccinations were given recently or have been completed.

      • There must be a copy of the cadet's insurance card in the service jacket.

Various Tips
  • Any cadets or escort officers who may be flying into South Florida need to arrange transport to and from Eagle Academy in coordination with COTC no later than 30 days prior to the training date. Such transport cannot be guaranteed, so please confirm with COTC before registering or booking any flights. It is strongly preferred that Palm Beach International (PBI) airport be used for arrival and departure, though Fort Lauderdale (FLL) may also be possible.

  • If you are applying as a STAFF CADET, please send an e-mail to explaining your desire and qualifications.

    • Your CO must also send an e-mail to recommending you for a staff cadet position.

  • Emergency contact information will be provided to every Unit and parent in the event that the unit or parent needs to reach a cadet.

  • Pictures will be posted every day on a dedicated Facebook page.

    • For privacy and security, no cadet names will be posted.

    • We will try to have every cadet in at least one picture every day.
