Group is the basic algebraic structure describing symmetry based on associative law. In order to express more general symmetry (or variation symmetry), the concept of group is generalized in various ways, for examples, regular semigroups, generalized groups, neutrosophic extended triplet groups and AG-groupoids. In this paper, based on the law of cyclic association and the background of non-associative ring, left weakly Novikov algebra and CA-AG-groupoid, a new concept of cyclic associative groupoid (CA-groupoid) is firstly proposed, and some examples and basic properties are presented. Moreover, as a combination of neutrosophic extended triplet group (NETG) and CA-groupoid, the notion of cyclic associative neutrosophic extended triplet groupoid (CA-NET-groupoid) is introduced, some important results are obtained, particularly, a decomposition theorem of CA-NET-groupoid is proved.
