SoIK Hellas is a sports club in the town of Stockholm in Sweden. It was established on 14 May 1899 as Pastorns gossar by Katarina Parish confirmation priest Ernst Klefbeck. The club then changed name to SoIK Hellas in 1912. The name change also came on the initiative of Ernst Klefbeck.[1] Nowadays the club runs bowling, track and field athletics, handball, swimming, orienteering, tennis and water polo. The club earlier even ran soccer, table tennis, fencing, gymnastics, cross-country skiing, diving, ski orienteering and squash.

The men's handball team won the Swedish national indoor handball championship in the years of 1936, 1937, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972 and 1977.[2] Even the men's water polo team has won Swedish championship titles.

The club decided in 2009 to become an alliance club from 2010.[3]
