The NDCC School's Cup is an annual competition played between secondary schools from the local area. The Cup is a knock-out structure, played under 20/20 over format, on school afternoons at the school grounds.
The Grand Finals were originally played in March at Mark Taylor Oval, Waitara. Many players who have played in the competition have gone on to play Grade Cricket at NDs.
The NDCC School's Cup was an initiative of Life Members, Tom Richmond and Neil Marks (also a Club Patron). Neil and Tom organised the very first competition in the 1975/76 season, which was won by Barker College from Knox Grammar.
