We invite you to be our guest at one of our drills to get a taste of the Sea Cadets. Our drills are held at Naval Amphibious Base Coronado on the second weekend of every month, from 0730 Saturday morning until 1600 (4 pm) Sunday afternoon. One of your parents will need to talk to the officers when you arrive. Click on the "Contact Us" button to request more information about the Sea Cadets program, directions to our drill site, or the drill schedule. YOU MUST CONTACT US NO LATER THAN THE WEDNESDAY BEFORE THE DRILL YOU WISH TO ATTEND so we can arrange clearance for you with base security.




Be sure to check for the latest updates to this site. Also visit the "Ship's Log" for information on how you can submit stories about your involvement in the Sea Cadet program and tell others about our drills and activities.




Our mission is to instill character in each cadet with teamwork, leadership, discipline, and self reliance. In particular, teamwork is the key element to our success as a unit and as individuals. We train each and every cadet, preparing them for their future role as our nation’s leaders, civilian and military.

Coronado Battalion is fortunate to be positioned on Naval Base Coronado (NBC). The unit receives classroom and hands-on-training from active duty members of the U.S. Navy, the Seabees, and US Marines, making it educational and adventurous. When not training with members of active duty service or reserve units, the unit participates in other activities and events, such as their annual flagship competition and community service, combining fun and hard work to bring out the best in each and every cadet.




We are co-sponsored by Amphibious Construction Battalion One (ACB1), located here at the Naval Amphibious Base (NAB) and the Amphibious ship, the BonHomme Richard (LHD-6).


The Naval Sea Cadet Corps is a non-profit organization. Coronado Battalion's financial sponsor is the Coronado Council of the Navy League of the United States. We also try raising money on our own through raffle tickets, car washes, and candy sales to purchase supplies, uniform, equipment, and other necessary items and also to defray some of the cost of training for cadets.


Please check out our "Sponsor" page to see how you can help support the unit.  Thank you.
