Men's First XI
The Men's 1st team competes in North Hockey Division One, where the focus is on the development of talented youngsters led by a core of experienced players.
The 1st team finished as champions of North Hockey Division Two (East) in 2012/13 and are now looking forward to finishing as high up the table as possible this year.
The side, which prides itself on fielding the majority of players from the local district, benefits from a good balance of experience and a number of exciting young prospects who have come through the club's coaching programme from under 10s. The Club is also pleased to announce that it has secured the signing of Polish international Bart Zywiczka for the 2013/14 season. Bart recently starred for his country in the European Championships in Belgium and will be playing a part in coaching the Men's section as well as playing for the 1st team.
Whilst committed on the pitch through both training and matchday performance, the 1st team also promotes a social aspect to being part of Harrogate Hockey Club. The team frequently helps arrange social events which extend through the club to encourage inter-team friendships and camaraderie.
