Halliwick AST National Championships 2020

Given the current uncertainty concerning coronavirus (Covid-19) and as to what the situation will be in the coming months, we have, with regret, decided that the National Championships planned to take place in London on 10/10/2020 will now NOT take place.

There will be no National Championships therefore for 2020. 

We apologise for the disappointment this will cause.

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!
