35th SCHROEDER "A+" Meet

Sponsored by:



January 30 - February 1, 2015

Brown Deer, Wisconsin

The Walter Schroeder Aquatic Center has been the host of many great meets for more than 25 years. Please consider adding our A+ meet to your schedule.  We awarded $4000.00 to the top coaches at our meet last year.  The quality of the field, the facility and the competence of our friendly meet management staff make this one of the Midwest’s best meets.

The meet filled in 2014 and as a result, the time standards were tightened significantly to reduce the overall meet size and to allow teams that want to come to be able to come and avoid a “entry race”.  Teams are still encouraged to submit their initial entry before the deadline and then may update their times and swims through the deadline.  We’ve chosen to expand the event list for younger age groups and start earlier on Friday to accommodate those additions.

Please bring proof of time to the meet. There is a $100.00 fine for not making the entry standards and not proving the times.  Swimmers will be barred from their next events until proof or fine paid.  You can prove times in either course LCM or SCY. Acceptable proof of time is printed results, Hy-Tek TM Proof of Time entry reports, .pdf results, reports from the USA Swimming times database.  We will run the meet database through a USA Swimming times recon report to ID non-conforming times that might need to be proved.


Printable heat sheets will be available from our website and available through hy-tek’s Meet Mobile app


Entries will be taken on a first come, first served basis until the meet is filled.


Coaches, please pick up your team’s awards. Awards will be bagged and will not be mailed.
