Cluster Counties Manukau
Counties Manukau has 12 traditional school sport clusters at Intermediate and Primary School level.
4 of these are Zones: Franklin Zone, Counties Zone, South Eastern Zone and South Western Zones. These zones are made up of Intermediate Schools. (Year 7 & 8’s) and include the clusters of North Counties, East Counties and Central Counties. These clusters are the full primary schools (meaning they have Year 7 & 8 students at their schools).
Each of these Counties Clusters play in the Zone competition as 1 Intermediate School representing their cluster. This could be Year 7 & 8’s from one particular primary school or the best of the clusters Year 7 & 8 students.
At Year 7 & 8, students have a Zone competition, against every intermediate school in their zone and the winning team is chosen to represent their Zone at the Inter-Zone Competition, also known as Auckland Champions of Champion. Schools in the Zone competition contribute to AAIMS Year 7 & 8 Sports Organisation, which has an executive committee who administers sport across the whole of Auckland.
North Counties, East Counties and Franklin Zone Groups, also cater for their Year 5 & 6 students. Schools within the group organise the competition days. However the Year 5 & 6 students do not go on to any further competition.
5 of the Clusters are Year 5 & 6 only clusters. These clusters are Howick/Pakuranga, Otara North, Papatoetoe, Mangere/Otahuhu and Manurewa. This is an interschool competition and again these students don’t go onto any further competition.
