WELCOME TO HALLIWICK AST

Promoting Swimming for Disabled People using the Halliwick Concept

In 1949, Southgate Seals Swimming Club in London promoted a swimming gala for a local charity. 6 disabled girls were invited to attend to watch. James McMillan, (aka Mac), as club coach, organised the gala.

While discussing the gala on the bus home (no car then!), Mac asked how the girls enjoyed it. The overwhelming response from the girls was ... If only we could get in there and do that!

Mac was quiet for a long while, (which did not often happen), and then he said, quite suddenly, ... Why not?

AND HERE WE STILL ARE - CELEBRATING 70 YEARS OF HALLIWICK!
