Check-In: All swimmers are required to check-in starting 30 minutes before the start of warm-up.  We would like all of our swimmers to check-in and show up 15 minutes before the start of Warm-Up.  This allows the coaches to warm-up all of our swimmers together as a team.  The check-in sheets will be posted outside in the hallway before you enter the locker rooms.  


Entry Limits: Each swimmer is allowed to swim up to 3 individual events on Friday and up to 5 individual events on Saturday and Sunday per day.


Fees are as follow: $5.00 per individual event, $1.00 Host Team surcharge per swimmer and $10.00 GLT surcharge per swimmer.

There will be no relays at this meet.

Please make sure you indicate in the Note Section anything you feel is important for the Coaches to know.  If your child can only swim on certain days you must include that in the note section, otherwise Coaches will assume that your child can swim all 3 days.  Please note, the Coaches will be selecting the events that they feel will benefit your swimmer. 




The first step in the IMX Challenge is IM Ready (or IMR). To get "IM Ready," swimmers compete in a series of five events at shorter distances. Below, we've listed the line-up by age groups.

9 & Under; 10-year olds: 100 Free, 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Fly, 100 IM


11-year olds; 12-year olds: 200 Free, 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Fly, 100 IM


13, 14, 15, 16, 17, & 18-year olds: 200 Free, 100 Back, 100 Breast, 100 Fly, 200 IM


Once you've swum each event at least once at an official meet, you can log-in to your Deck Pass Account, and find out where you rank against all the other swimmers on your club team. You do not need to complete the IM Ready program to participate in the IM Xtreme. It is simply a steppingstone.



Ready to move forward? The next step is IM Xtreme (IMX). The IMX ranking includes a series of five or six events at longer distances. Once you've completed the IMX program, you can find out where your IMX score ranks nationally, within your zone, within your LSC rank and on your club.

9 & Under; 10-year olds: 200 Free, 100 Back, 100 Breast, 100 Fly, 200 IM


11-year olds; 12-year olds: 500 Free, 100 Back, 100 Breast, 100 Fly, 200 IM


13, 14, 15, 16, 17, & 18-year old: 500 Free, 200 Back, 200 Breast, 200 Fly, 200 IM, 400 IM

How do I score points?

Rankings in the program are based on power points a system developed by USA Swimming.

How do I participate?

Participation in the IMR and IMX is easy. USA Swimming automatically scores and calculates results for all athlete members! Swimmers only need to sign up for a Deck Pass Account, then compete in each required event, at a sanctioned meet, at least once in a season. Swimmers have the option of printing certificates that displays their scores for either IMR or IMX. They can also optionally print their national, zone, LSC and/or club rankings for IMX.


Scoring - Individual Scoring will occur via IMX scores (Power Points) for IM Xtreme and IM Ready events only. Those scores will be based on participating in all IM Xtreme or IM Ready events in the following slates for each individual age: 8 y/o and Under, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15,16, 17, and 18 y/o. In the event of a DQ a swimmer is still qualified for the IMX or IMR slate they will just receive 0 points for the DQ’d event/s. (No event substitutions.) Time Trial events are NOT eligible.
