Abstract. Among the leading Ukrainian figures in the field of physical education and sports in Galicia in the late XIX-th — the first half of the XX-th century the prominent place is occupied by Ivan Bobersky. His life and creative path are already well analyzed in modern Ukrainian historiography. Instead, little attention was paid to his students such as Stepan Haiduchok, Peter and Taras Franko, Oksana Sukhoverska, Daria Navrotska and others. The leader among them was Stepan Haiduchok (1890—1976) — a teacher, public figure, athlete, soldier of the Galician Army, journalist, photographer, connoisseur of Ukrainian antiquity. Living in Lviv from 1901 till 1976 (with short breaks), he devoted all his time to physical education and sports. The studying at the Academic Gymnasium in Lviv from 1901 till 1910 and the meeting with Professor Ivan Bobersky became decisive in the formation of his worldview and choosing a future profession — a physical education teacher. The beginning of Stepan Haiduchok’s pedagogical path is 1911—1914, in particular his work as a gymnastics teacher (physical education) in the Basilian Sisters gymnasium (1911—1913), Private Women’s Teachers’ Seminary of the Russian (Ukrainian) Pedagogical Society (1911—1912), T. Shevchenko girls school of the RPС (1911).

This aspect of Ukrainian history has not been studied and so is the novelty of the proposed publication. The aim of the research is to comprehensively analyze the pedagogical work of Stepan Haiduchok on the eve of the First World War. The chronological boundaries of the study cover the years 1911—1914, the territorial boundaries — Lviv and Galicia. The methodological basis of the article is the principles of historicism and objectivity.

The source base for writing the article was the reports of the Basilian Sisters Gymnasium and the schools of the Russian (Ukrainian) Pedagogical Society in Lviv; reports and publications of the Sokil-Bat’ko society in Lviv; the personal file of Stepan Haiduchok, which is stored in the archives of Danylo Halytsky Lviv National Medical University; publications in Lviv journals «Visti z Zaporozha» (News from Zaporozha), «Dilo» (Business), «Sportovi Visti» (Sports News); notes and educational and methodical works of Stepan Haiduchok and Ivan Bobersky; documents, photos and postcards from the private archives of Stepan Haiduchok, Yury Zaverbny, the Bilynsky and Krypyakevych families.

Keywords: Stepan Haiduchok, Galicia, Lviv, social and cultural activity, pedagogical work, physical and body education, sports.
