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

Click Here to Download Welcome Letter and Sea Bag Lists, but 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, uniform 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 done...by far! Your cadet will have enough to handle with the training alone...please 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 problem at trainings...it will!

    • Do not go away on vacation while your cadet is at 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.

& Financial
Various Tips
  • Any cadets or escort officers who may be flying in need to arrange transport to and from Camp Geneve in coordination with the COTC no later than 30 days prior to the training date. Such transport cannot be guaranteed, so please confirm with COTC before booking any flights. All flights must be to and from Orlando International Airport (MCO), arriving between 0700 and 1100 on 26 DEC, and departing between 1600 and 2000 on 03 JAN.

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

  • Absolutely no cell phones or other electronic devices will be permitted for Recruit Training or League Cadet Orientation cadets, though Staff Cadets and cadets in other programs may be allowed cell phone us from time-to-time.

  • 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.
