Lt. Colonel Bob Weinstein, known as the Health Colonel, has invited the Spruance Division of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadets for his beach boot camp in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on Saturday, January 22, 2005 from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM, Las Olas and State Road A1A. The workout will air on the television network Telemundo tentatively on February 6, 2005 at 3 PM on the extreme sports show "Ritmo Deportivo" or it will air sometime in February.

The United States Naval Sea Cadet Corp's Team Spruance is the finest youth development program for boys and girls ages 11 - 17 available in South Florida. The program and staff's goal is to help teens and pre-teens develop skills, self-esteem and confidence that will help them succeed to the greatest degree possible for each individual in school and life. Team Spruance receives it’s primary support from the Fort Lauderdale Council of the Navy League of the United States, as well as contributions from many area businesses and individuals.

Here's how the Sea Cadet program is summed up:

It's About Having Fun − In Ways and Places You've Never Imagined.

It's About Learning & Growing from Exciting Experiences Few Ever Have.

It's About Friendship, Teamwork and Being Part of the Team Spruance Family

It's About Becoming Self-Disciplined and Successful in Everything You Do

It's About Helping Each Other While You Help Yourself

It's About Caring, Commitment, Courage & Compassion

It's About Honor − For Country, For Family, For Friends and For Self

"The sea cadet program emphasizes the teaching of positive moral values that benefit others and help build self-respect, self-esteem and confidence", said Lt. Jeff Leibowitz, Executive Officer of the Navy League program. "Only a small percent of those who become Sea Cadets actually join the military, but the values and discipline they learn help them move on into families and businesses where they make significant contributions as responsible and honorable members of society."

Females make up about 40 percent of Team Spruance. Sea Cadets get some amazing opportunities. Recently, they visited the Combat Information Center of a naval guided missile cruiser and participated in fire fighting training. Sea Cadets receive the same training that the military receives, which can be anything from Navy SEAL to Navy band training.
