Sea Cadets, by definition, need to be good swimmers. The Cadets periodically undergo swim skills training and assessment, most often at the pool at Naval Station Newport. Cadets qualify in four basic strokes, learn to float while expending a minimum amount of energy, and practice vertical water entry in a simulated debris field (abandon ship exercise). The focus of swim skills training is on survival - learning to stay alive while awaiting rescue.
