  • Harrow Cup 2015 Recap!

    Harrow Cup 2015

    College field hockey season is in full swing, with most teams almost half way through their regular season schedule. The time, effort, and passion these players and coaches devote to the sport is admirable. However, once their NCAA eligibility is finished, we, as a country, have failed to provide an opportunity for them to continue their playing careers. The club system in Europe is something we all envy. Kids and adults of all ages have the opportunity to play as often and as competitively as they desire. While there are several annual tournaments with adult divisions in the US, there are far fewer structured leagues. The major cities often find enough players to put on a weekly co-ed match, but most players would tell you they want more.

    At Harrow, our team of former college field hockey athletes decided we should do something about it. The Harrow Cup was created in 2012 with the goal to kick start a post-collegiate playing community in the States. We have successfully organized a draft based tournament for the past 3 years, and will continue to adapt and improve the event to meet the needs of our new community.
    This is just the beginning. We aim to organize and support leagues that will string together existing tournaments to create a full calendar of playing opportunities.

    Take a look at the 2015 highlight video to hear a few words from our friends on why post-collegiate field hockey is important for our sport.

  • Sobhy Signs with Harrow Sports!

    sobhysigns2

    Denver, CO—May 14, 2015

    Harrow Sports is pleased to introduce the newest addition to its Elite Team, Amanda Sobhy. One of the most decorated players in US Squash history, Sobhy signed with Harrow after finishing her college career at Harvard, with four individual national championships to her name.

    Sobhy began her international career with a splash, becoming the only player under the age of 17 to win three major Women’s Squash Association (WSA) titles. The 2010 World Junior Women’s Champion, Amanda continues to dazzle the squash community and make history. Not only is she the only American squash player to reach the quarterfinals in the Tournament of Champions, but Amanda also took home gold at her first official event as a professional in the Texas Open last month. She is currently ranked at #10 in the world, showing obvious promise to climb the rankings.

    “We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Amanda to the Harrow Family,” states Mark Hayden, Harrow Sports CEO. “She is a stellar competitor and we couldn't be more excited to have a player of her caliber join us.”

    "Amanda is one of the smartest and hardest working people I have met in the squash community and I am personally gratified that she has chosen to work with Harrow", added Dave Rosen, Harrow Vice President of Racquet Sports. "I've come to know Amanda and her family very well over her unparalleled career as a junior and collegiate player and look forward to working with Amanda as she continues to establish herself as an internationally renowned squash professional."

    After inking her name on the dotted line, Sobhy commented “"I am really excited to be a part of Team Harrow. Signing with Harrow was an obvious choice for me as they continue to grow into one of the worldwide leaders in squash. Their support of the squash community, dedication to delivering the best possible products and their personalized service truly sets them apart from the competition. I am happy to be representing Harrow as I begin my professional career and am looking forward to working with this great company for years to come."

  • Gaining on Goliath

    qxL89eQ_In anticipation of this week’s matches against Argentina at Spooky Nook Sports, I thought I’d give some insight into the history of our contentious yet budding rivalry. Games will be held February 13th (6:30pm), 14th (4pm), 16th (6:30pm), and 18th (6:30pm). Check your local TV listing for details on the live broadcast. 

    Our rivalry with Argentina, it’s like a modern-day adaptation of David and Goliath, only our version picks up in the aftermath of the epic showdown - the 2011 Pan American Game Final - and comes with a slight plot twist, Goliath, Argentina in our case, didn’t vanish after we became victors.

    With each contest, the rivalry grows. Here’s what you need to know:

    The Characters.

    Argentina, ranked #2 in the world, is one of the most dominant nations, alongside the Netherlands and Australia, in international hockey. Their play, typical of its South American roots, is tenacious and energetic, seductively skillful, blazing with fanciful flashes of flare and fire.  The crown of Las Leonas, as they are colloquially known in Argentina, glints with the gold of World Championships, the silver and bronzes of Olympics.

    USA, ranked #8, is one of the emerging nations on the world hockey scene. Traditionally known for our physical prowess and relentless discipline, our typically brutish play has been technically and tactically refined in recent years. The sophistication enhances our inherent physical abilities and mental fortitude, making us, in my opinion, one of the most dynamic and interesting forces in the game right now.

    The Plotline

    The storyline hasn’t always been so riveting. In fact, until a few years ago, it was downright predictable. The trailer would’ve read something like this:

    America, dutifully playing the role of pesky, Pan-American under study, valiantly takes the field to overcome the seemingly invincible Las Leonas. Chest’s puffing with the forged bravado of belief, the Americans’ style, physical and resilient, keeps the contest close, yet inevitably, the Argentines always pull away victorious.

    Argentina had an edge on us. We’d try, try, try, but deep down, I think we questioned whether we belonged. Something needed to change. We needed to reformulate our strategy, figure out what was holding us back, and do something about it.

    Our task was to bring Goliath, in our own minds, down to size. Because, you see, here’s the thing about David and Goliath, Goliath so believed his own invincibility, that David was, to him, a mere nuisance. Yet, David didn’t buy the bluster. He saw Goliath for what he was, a massive, skilled, trained, yet most importantly, a mortal fighter. David called Goliath’s bluff.

    For years, we’d been buying into the Argentine bluff, trying, and failing, to outdo them at their own game. David didn’t beat Goliath with brute force. We had to find a way to create an even playing field, that meant playing to our strengths – using our discipline to win the small battles, and our resilience to stay in the moment, resisting the urge of getting caught up in the Argentine storyline.

    Eventually, the mental block began to unravel. It didn’t happen overnight. It took patience. We lost many more games, but with each loss we learned, and in time we were able to take the field without the weight of the albatross around our necks. We were free to play the game.

    In 2011, we had an historic victory over the Las Leonas in the Pan American Games Final. Since then, the scorecard has been pretty even. We won in the 2012 Olympics, tied in pool play at the 2014 World Cup, and in our last meeting, for the World Cup Bronze Medal, we lost 2-1.

    With a new cast of characters, the upcoming games will open a new chapter in our ever-evolving rivalry. As they seek to stay atop the world rankings, and we yearn to climb the ladder, much still remains to be written. The only difference now is that Goliath knows the name of David. It’s the United States of America.
