Klub Sportowy Czuwaj is a sports club from the Polish city of Przemy?l, founded by the scouting movement. Originally a multi-sports club with many sections, only the football section has survived to date.

History

Origins

The club was founded on 30 March 1918 as a sports club of the scouting movement. The name "Czuwaj" means "Be Vigilant", a scout greeting and motto of the Polish Scouting and Guiding Association. Originally it was a multi-sports club with many sections however few of them have survived very long. In 1922 the club held its first AGM, and the boxing section of the club was founded. In 1931, the handball section was founded, the longest continuously functioning section of the club.

Communist era

The handball section played 11-a-side handball until 1961, until the teams were re-organised and they switched to 7-a-side. In 1947, with the arrival of communism in Poland, the club was under the patronage of the Polish State Railways. This is when the club enjoyed its golden years, reaching an all-time high of 7th place in 1950 in the second division. In 1957 the boxing club was dissolved.

Success and decline

By the end of the 1990s the club ran into serious financial difficulties, despite the handball team reaching their highest ever division, the Ekstraklasa between 1997 and 1999, and the football team reaching the second division for the second time in its history in the 1997/98 season. Both the handball and the football sections were liquidated in 1999 during a general meeting where a vote of 25:21 in favour of liquidating the club was held. A different association reactivated the football team almost immediately under the name "Klub Sportowy Czuwaj". The handball club had to wait till 2007, when it was revived with the help of the city. In 2012, the handball club was given to "A. Fredry Club of the University College of Teachers in Przemysl" ("Klub Uczelnianego Kolegium Nauczycielskiego im. A. Fredry w Przemy?lu"), ceasing to be formally part of the club.
