This month I would like to write about the process of joining TS Nimrod: who can join, why they should join and how to go about it.
Who can join Sea Cadets? Anyone between the ages of 13 and 15 (or 12 if you’re already at high school or nearly there).The ideal time to start coming along is right near the end of year 8 at school. That way, you can try out all the great things we do in summer and then have the holidays to think about whether you want to join (most people spend the holidays looking forward to coming back!).
Why should someone join Sea Cadets? Just ask anyone who has been a member of TS Nimrod (once you start looking you’ll find there are lots out there) and most of them will tell you it’s one of the best things they ever did, even if they were only there for a short time. Some of the best bits include meeting people of different ages from different schools, gaining heaps of confidence to do all sorts of things you never thought you’d do (from abseiling to public speaking), gaining skills like leadership which you can put on your CV and which will be useful for the rest of your life, and having lots and lots of fun in a huge range of activities.
How do you join TS Nimrod? However it suits you best really. We’re happy if you just want to come for a visit to see what we do – our regular meeting time is Thursday from 6.45 to 9pm. To arrange a visit, or if you have any questions, just email firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/tsnimrod. We look forward to hearing from you!
