The Mount Clear Cricket Club is a local club playing in the senior and junior competitions of the Ballarat Cricket Association. We pride ourselves on catering for all abilities from SOCIAL to HIGH LEVEL players and age groups whilst playing the determined, never give up Mountie Way. 


We are a proud, passionate and successful club whom promote the game of cricket and aim to provide opportunities for club members to enjoy participation in the game and associated social interaction.


Our senior coach for season 2018/19 is Matthew Ward. Matt is in his fifth year as club coach of the Mounties. He is a level 2 accredited coach as recognised by Cricket Australia with over 150 games experience, 100 of which are played in the First XI. Matt is a Mountie since juniors and benefited from a stint playing cricket in England. This wealth of experience and knowledge holds the club in good stead and can take player's games to the next level. 


This season we also have the expertise of Nathan Yates and David Thomson as bowling and batting coaches. Between the two of them, Nathan and David have won six EJ Clear Medals (awarded to the best player of the BCA First XI competition) and many, many years of experience and skills to draw upon in taking player's batting and bowling to the next level.
