How do I join Cadets?

Joining a Cadet Unit is really easy. Just follow the following steps:

  1. You must be at least 13 or in Year 9 at High School. Most people who join are between 13-15.
  2. Find your closest New Zealand Cadet Forces unit you may wish to serve with.
  3. Choose the unit you would like to join.
  4. With your parents / guardian visit the unit on one of their parade nights and meet the Unit staff.
  5. The Unit staff will show you around, talk to you about Cadets and probably invite you to attend a couple of parades
  6. When you have made up your mind that NZ Cadet Forces is for you the Unit staff will give you an enrolment form to fill in and ask your parent / guardian to sign.
  7. Hand the completed enrolment form to the Unit Staff.
