About club

The history of KTH dates back to 1928, when in November, in Nałęczówka villa in Krynica Zdrój, a group of hockey lovers decided to initiate such beautiful History and formed a Hockey Club. The location in the south of Poland was not a matter of a coincidence. Krynica-Zdrój met and meets all requirements and is a guarantee for players and coaches of ideal conditions for preparations and play. Infrastructural facilities, mountain landscape, healthy air are things they need. Krynica became a forerunner of Polish Ice Hockey. In Krynica, there were organised major Hockey international events. In 1931, it hosted the simultaneous World Championship and European Championship events. AT that event, Polish team became European Championship runner-ups and was fourth in the world's tournament. In 1950, the Club became Polish Hockey Champion, including players who were contemporary members of our Olympic and national teams in ice hockey and luge. One of the club presidents was Julian Zawadowski. In 2012, the management over 1928 KTH club was taken over by Daniel Kaszowski – Board President, Damian Dubel – Board Vice-President, Mateusz Dubel – Sport Director, who in the 2012/2013 season became winners of the Polish 2nd League. In that year, the Club Board initiated the cooperation with world's renowned coaches, i.e. Igor Zakharkin and Wiaczesław Bykov, what allowed us to notice previously not known possibilities. The main aim of the Club Board is forming the best training centre in Poland, based on qualified coaching staff as well as providing the best conditions for increasing the skills of Polish and European young players.

A significant amount of cultural centres allows one to nicely spend free time.

The developed infrastructure offers numerous sport facilities like gyms, swimming pools, Municipal Sport and Recreation Centre, high quality ice cover etc. Training by excellent coaches and cooperation with good schools will bring only great benefits in the future.
