National Cadet Competition

There will no longer be a national event in Dayton each summer. The eight regional winners will be announced and celebrated at the national level.  Per the CSAG, NHQ Cadet Programs is working to put out an announcement in December on the changes to the NCC program.


About the Activity:

National Cadet Competition (NCC) is the culminating activity of the Cadet Competition season.  Teams compete at wing and region level vying for a spot to compete at NCC.  This is not an NCSA but is listed here for reference purposes.

A kickoff letter outlining timelines and details for the upcoming NCC is posted under "NCC Competitor Information" on the Cadet Competition homepage.  Supporting regulations and pamphlets, team rosters, helps for wing/region competitions, links to NCC publicity, as well as instructions for how to register as a competitor, escort, staff member or banquet/awards ceremony guest, are also outlined on the page. 

Teams arrive between the afternoon of TBA and TBA.  Competition runs from [EVENT DATES] with banquet and awards ceremony on the evening of the TBA.  Teams and staff depart on TBA .
