IM XTREME GAMES
 
 
The IM Xtreme Games Northeast meet is January 24-26.  The deadline to sign up for the meet is next Thursday, January 9.
 
All swimmers, regardless of gender or age, must have a minimum IMX score of 1800.  This score must have been completed in one season in one course, after the beginning time of September 1, 2018.  So, swimmers must have completed the 5 or 6 events for the appropriate age within either the 2018-2019 Short Course Yard (winter) season, 2019 Long Course Meter (summer) season, or 2019-2020 Short Course Yard (winter) season.
 
Eligibility reports are linked above for each of the three eligible seasons.  If your swimmer is not on a list, then your swimmer did not complete the total events necessary to get any IMX score (listed below).  If your swimmer is on one or more of the lists, check the IMX score on the very left to see if your swimmer has the minimum score of 1800.  If your swimmer does not have the score of 1800 yet, either by not having enough points for their IMX score, or by not having completed all of the IMX events in one season and one course, then your swimmer can qualify for this meet for the first time at the Pirate Plunge meet by completing all of the events and scoring at least 1800 IMX points.
 
IMX events are as follows:
9-10 year olds: 200 free, 200 IM, 100 fly, 100 back, and 100 breast
11-12 year olds: 500 free, 200 IM, 100 fly, 100 back, and 100 breast
13-14 year olds: 500 free, 400 IM, 200 IM, 200 fly, 200 back, and 200 breast
 
Swimmers who enter into the meet will automatically be entered into all age-appropriate events throughout the entire weekend, listed above.
 
 
DST FLYERS NIGHT
 
The deadline to sign up to attend the Philadelphia Flyers game on Thursday, January 16, with Delaware Swim Team is Friday, January 10.  This is a hard deadline, because ticket information needs to be coordinated with the Philadelphia Flyers.  You can sign up to attend the game here.  You can also reach the sign-up through the "Meets & Events" tab on the team website, just like for swim meets.  Swimmers who sign up for tickets through Delaware Swim Team will get a Flyers Gritty swim cap.
 
 
Thanks,
The Delaware Swim Team coaching staff
