We are an incorporated society for Regional Amateur Sport (cricket) who's mission is to provide leadership for the Counties Manukau Cricket Community – ensuring pathways from school to club for all involved.

We are one of six districts that make up the Northern Districts Cricket Association (NDCA). We are also affiliated to New Zealand Cricket (NZC).
Our region spans across all of the former Franklin District, Papakura District and Manukau City (part) and now since the boundaries were redrawn in 2010, includes some of the Waikato and Hauraki Districts.

We serve 12 cricket clubs, 11 secondary schools and 110 Primary and Intermediate schools which equates to 5,193 participants (NZ Cricket Census 2014/15)
