CACA is the only not-for-profit-organization in Central Alberta for supporting and promoting cricket. It is also true that whilst the sport of cricket- the coaching, the training, and the competition -is at the heart of what CACA provide members with, CACA is also keen to ensure that the social element meets the expectations of members and the community.
For achieving all this, CACA will need a big membership base and some generous sponsorship help from the communities in Central Alberta.
