Walter Schroeder Aquatic Center
Associated with the Rite Hite YMCA, the Walter Schroeder 50 meter Pool in Brown Deer, Wisconsin, is close to the I-43 and Brown Deer Road exit on the north side of Milwaukee. During the Covid-19 pandemic, we are holding practices using a protocol developed to minimize risk to swimmers and coaches. We have daily coached practices in the early AM all days of the week. All ages and ability levels have a place to swim here. Lanes are 8-foot wide. Pool depth ranges from 2 meters to 5 meters. 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 Rameriz Aquatic Center at the St. Augustine Preparatory School (Off I-94/I-43, Becher Street Exit, south of downtown). There is a 10 lane 25 yard pool which has coached masters practices 6 times a week (Mon through Friday (5:45-7am) and Saturday (7-8:30am)).
Walter Schroeder Aquatic Center, Brown Deer, Practice Schedule during Covid-19 has two sessions on Mon thru Fri at 6-7am and 7-8am plus one session on Sat 7-8:30 AM and Sunday at 8-9 AM. With 18 available lanes over two hours on weekdays, swimmers generally swim one person per lane but may swim two per lane with starting at opposite ends of the lane. The second workout group site at the Rameriz Aquatic Center at St. Augustine Prep School has coached masters practices 6 times a week (Mon through Friday (5:45-7am) and Saturday (7-8:30am)). When the Schroeder pool is closed for an early age group swim meet on a Saturday, the Schroeder pool swimmers use Rameriz Aquatic Center as an alternative.
