Walter Schroeder Aquatic Center
Affiliated with a YMCA, the pool pictured is the Walter Schroeder Pool in Brown Deer, Wisconsin close to I-43 and Brown Deer Road exit on the north side of Milwaukee. We have a daily coached practice in the early AM all days except Sunday, plus 2 evening practices at this pool. All ages and ability levels have a place to swim here. Lanes are 8-foot wide. Swimmers are friendly. Swimmers are a mix of USMS members, USA-Triathlon members and swimmers with fitness as the primary goal. Coaches are excellent. They are up to date with techniques. They coach both age group and masters swimmers. Occasionally, we use an underwater camera for feedback to improve our stokes. A second workout group site is at the new St. Augustine Preparatory School (Off I-94/I-43, Becher Street Exit, south of downtown) is home to a 10 lane 25 yard pool which has practices 3 times a week (Mondays & Wednesday (5:45-7am), Saturday (7-8:30am)).
