JKH GKS Jastrzębie were founded in 1963 in the Polish city of Jastrzębie, located near to the Czech border in southern Poland. Throughout the 1970’s and 1980’s, the club spent most of their time in Poland’s second tier of hockey but were promoted to Poland’s top flight for the first time in 1991. They spent one season in the league but withdrew before the 1992/93 season due to organizational and financial problems, as the entire club ceased to exist.
In 1995, Jastrzębski Klub Hockeyowy (JKH) was founded and briefly competed in the Polish second tier before focusing on youth development. Ten years later they returned to playing professional hockey and aimed to make it back into the top flight, the Ekstraliga.
Their long sought-after goal finally came in 2007, when Jastrzębie made it through the entire season unbeaten and were promoted to the Ekstraliga.
Since then, they have won four Polish cups, most recently in 2020, and finished Ekstraliga runners-up in 2013 and 2015.
This season Jastrzębie won their first Polish Championship and qualified for the Champions Hockey League for the very first time.
