Walter Schroeder Aquatic Center

Brown Deer, WI

Site of the 1980 NCAA Swim Championships and USS National Swimming Championships.

The Walter Schroeder Aquatic Center is nationally recognized for its aquatics programs, offering the only 50-meter swimming pool in the state of Wisconsin (at the time of construction). The facility was built in 1980 and includes a 50- by 20-meter pool with a movable floor and two bulkheads. Diving includes two 1-meter boards and two 3-meter boards on Durafirm stands, and platforms of 3-,5-,7 1/2-, and 10-meters.

In 1981, Mary Meagher set the women’s world record in the 100-meter and 200-meter butterfly in the U.S. Long-Course Swimming Championships at this facility. The 200-meter record stood for 20 years.
