Recruit Training Florida 2019

For a cadet to maximize their success in the Sea Cadet program, they should attend basic training as soon as possible after their enrollment. 

This will enable them to promote regularly and gain the satisfaction of the knowledge of various aspects of the military. The RTFL staff has an excellent group of officers to assist cadets in preparing for this training.

Note: This is NOT a boot camp experience in the traditional sense. There will be no HAZING, HARASSMENT or YELLING at Cadets. HOWEVER, strict discipline will be followed during the 2 weeks of the boot camp. Each cadet and officer will be expected to maintain the highest standards of performance and conduct throughout the evolution.  

It is about educating the cadets to achieve their maximum potential and prepare for a successful future!

Fair warning: This is a very challenging training in a warm climate. Prepare now by doing the following

  • Stop drinking soda pop or energy drinks. Cadets will not drink any caffeinated beverages during the 2 weeks of this training.

  • Start exercising now! We will be marching to and from chow to each meal, a distance of 1 mile from our drill site. If you are on the Xbox all day, you will have a challenging experience at RT. Running, pushups, situps need to have more of a role in your preparation.

  • All male recruits will receive a regulation recruit training haircut! Female recruits and Staff Cadets must have their hair within regs. No exceptions. Males will be expected to maintain a clean-shaven appearance at all times.

  • Recruits will NOT have access to their cell phones or the internet during this training. Parents are encouraged to send letters to their cadets. A mailing address will be provided later. Cadets will be encouraged to write home also. DO NOT SEND FOOD, PRESENTS, STUFFED ANIMALS, ETC. ONLY LETTERS PLEASE!

  • There will be FUN events also in this training. It will not be all work-no play! Your behavior will dictate the ratio.

  • Interested in staffing? Contact the COTC for an interview. STAFF CADETS Should be 2nd Class or higher to request. Preference will be given to 2nd classes and above. POLA is a must!

The cost of the training is $300.00. You must send a money order to the COTC at the address below. Do NOT send any money until your cadet's orders are confirmed. Send your money not later than JUN 06 or you may lose your spot to those on the waiting list.
