Go America. Go Harrow

Harrow got all patriotic on us whilst in Washington D.C. We did a phot shoot with two USA field hockey members. Maybe you know them? Rachel Dawson and Mel Brill? Yeah they are kind of a big deal. Well both are sporting the new Harrow sticks (out now as an early Christmas gift to you).
So in the capital of this great country we went on a little journey... As Rachel Dawson quoted, "Harrow is going places" well not only is she correct she is also our superstar super model in the shoot. Sporting the Tembo stick and Harrow field hockey glove. On the metro, fitting that it was the red line and all around D.C our Harrow girls flashed their pearly whites and Harrow equipment. We even ran into a group of adoring fans who wanted a picture with these superstars.

So enough writing already show us the pictures... Ok ok here they are.

National Club Championship 2011

First official National Club Championship 2011 

For so long American field hockey has been missing one thing…a club championship. All over the world club field hockey has had a competitive league resulting in a play off and the crowning of a club champion. The honor of winning a national tournament brings pride and status to the respective club.

Playing for a club team during the off -season or during field hockey season can only be beneficial to any player, more playing time as well as exposure to playing with stronger players at a higher level. In turn club teams strengthen the grass root levels of field hockey in the United States.

So the first annual National Club Championship will be held in Richmond, Virginia from 21, July 2011- 24, July 2011. Guess who the official sponsors of the event is? HARROW obviously. There will be a Harrow booth where you can get all your field hockey necessities. Harrow will be selling official event merchandise as well as showcasing the brand new stick line favored by Rachel Dawson in the recent Champions Challenge.

“Harrow has stood for performance since our inception," said Alli Tanner, Harrow Director of Field Hockey. "The National Club Championship provides an opportunity to showcase the best in amateur athletic performance and our goal is for field hockey players across America to aspire to be participants."

Tweet @harrowfh and let us know that you’ll be there.

Any questions regarding merchandise or stick orders please contact atanner@harrowsports.com or call 303-892-3472

Champions Challenge 2011

The 2011 Champions Challenge is being held in Dublin, Ireland. Some folk have been asking how this tournament affects your chance to qualify for the Olympics and how it affects the teams’ international rankings.

The Champions Challenge is essentially the bottom six ranked teams in the world. The top six nations attend the Champions Trophy tournament. The loser of the Champions Trophy gets relegated to the Champions Challenge tournament and the winner of the Champions Challenge tournament then moves up to the Champions Trophy tournament.

This year the Pools are divided in two: Pool A and Pool B.
At the top of Pool A is South Africa with 4 points, ahead of Scotland who also has 4 points, but the convincing 5-1 for South Africa over Japan has put them at the top of pool A. Japan comes in third with 3 points and USA at the bottom of the pool after two close losses. Japan defeated USA 2-1 despite the USA having many chances in the last minutes of the half. USA’s second loss, 3-1 came versus Scotland after being tied at the half.

Pool B has been full of surprises with the usual field hockey powers not dominating. It appears this years Champions Challenge will be one for the under dogs. The host nation, Ireland leads Pool B with 6 points and two wins over Azerbaijan and India. Azerbaijan is in second standing with 3 points and a win over Spain. In the last two positions of Pool B is Spain and India with 1 point each.

Today is a rest day in Ireland with the teams preparing for the following upcoming matches: Japan vs Scotland; USA vs South Africa; Azerbaijan vs India and Spain vs Ireland.
