Sea Scouts in Ship 100 have two uniforms. A “Work” uniform (NCU Blues) and a “Dress” Uniform (Crackerjack Whites). We also make our own activity shirts each June (tie-dye and stencils.)
The Primary Uniform is the NCU. Whites are used infrequently and parents/guardians are advised to delay purchase until needed. We find that youth often outgrow these before first wear.
The “New Century Universal” or NCU is our basic uniform. It’s pretty inexpensive and you can get the shirts online at Walmart, Amazon or anywhere that sells Dickies Work Shirts.
