Recognizing the uniqueness of the on-the-water leadership required in the Sea Scout program, the Seabadge training conference was conceived to:

  • To improve the understanding of leadership, management, and motivation among selected experienced Sea Scout adult volunteer leaders.
  • To provide management, leadership, and presentation skills and tools to these leaders so that they may use them and share them with others in their day-to-day activities and through leading a Seabadge conference.
  • To use this understanding and these skills and tools to improve and expand both the quality and quantity of the Sea Scout program as a way to reach the Aims of Scouting.

The Seabadge training conference consists of a comprehensive weekend of training and instruction followed by a a set of measurable goals to be completed by the participant so as to demonstrate improve the participants' council/ship Sea Scout program.


  • Seabadge training certificate and square knot presented at the conclusion of the course
