Jiří Snítil (born February 24, 1975) is a curler from the Czech Republic. He currently skips the Czech Republic national team. He started curling at the age of 21.

Snítil has represented the Czech Republic in six World Curling Championships (2008, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014). His best placing so far at a world championship was 7th in 2014.
