Mike Schultze Conditioning/Competition Coach

My name is Mike and I was born and raised in the Cross Plains, Wisconsin area.  I started swimming for the Cross Plains Stingrays at 8 and was immediately hooked.  That winter I joined the Mad-Town Aquatics (Now part of MAC) and began swimming year-round.  Through MTA I became  a National Level USS (Now USA) Swimmer in Butterfly. In addition, I swam for four years at Middleton High School. 

During this time as a competitive swimmer, I had the honor of being coached by some of the best local (UW-Madison Coaches and Swimmers) and national (Jack Nelson) coaches and their drive and dedication continues with me to this day. I have brought this drive when I have coached Summer Recreational Swimming, Club Level Swimming and Highschool (Girls) Swimming. As a coach, I feel it is my responsibility to ensure each hardworking swimmer gets the opportunity to succeed and enjoy swimming as much as I do. In addition to competitive coaching I was a lifeguard and WSI Swim Instructor. 

I have two wonderful children, Evan (11) and Annabelle (8) who decided to start competitive swimming last year and will be on the Barracudas again this year.
