Metchosin Cricket Club
Join the Cougars!
Come for the beers, stay for the cricket
Founded in 1976, the Metchosin Cricket Club initially played friendlies at the Metchosin Elementary School, using a roll out mat placed on the grass. Things have since progressed; the club joined the league proper in the early 80s, and in 1988 the present pitch was opened on the grounds of the Metchosin Municipal Hall. The club was a pioneer in both bringing in players from overseas and developing a Schools Program to introduce local youngsters to the noble summer game. In 1992 Metchosin entered a team in the Mid-Week league and the club has fielded two teams ever since. The junior program has seen numbers increase steadily since Rick & Darren took over coaching, which bodes well for the future growth of the club.
