36 clubs are divided into three divisions. The league is run by the management committee and other than the general rules of cricket, rule amendments are suggested and voted upon by all the member clubs.
Two clubs are relegated from divisions 1 and 2 each year (those finishing in the bottom two places), with two clubs being promoted from the division below.
The two clubs finishing, bottom and second to bottom respectively, of the third division must state its case for re-election each year.
The 36 clubs are spread over a relatively wide geographical area in North Yorkshire and West Yorkshire. The location of the clubs broadly follows the valleys and landscapes of the River Aire and the River Wharfe.
The league is known for being well organised as competently run by the management committee and the standard of cricket is considered to be one of the best of Yorkshire league cricket.
The ‘A&WSCL’ is remarkable for its diversity. There are small village style teams as well as established multi-sport clubs within the competition, often competing on similar terms.
In recent years the league has progressed in terms of quality and preparation.
The diversity extends to the physical grounds themselves, some being rural and picturesque whilst other are more charming inner city facilities.
