THE FOLLOWING REPORTS LIST THE TOP 16 IMX SCORES for the 2010-2011 SCY SEASON, BY AGE. READ BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT IMX AND HOW TO ACHIEVE THE POINTS.
An IMX or IM Ready score is only established after a swimmer
has swum all of the events required for their age group in a
sanctioned meet since the start of the current season; both
short and long course seasons start September 1 and end August 31
for IMX/IMR purposes.
Additionally, a swimmer must complete all of the events in the same course (SCY or LCM) to have a score in that particular course.
IM READY (IMR)
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 (SC) or 200 IM (LC)
11-year olds; 12-year olds: 200 Free, 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Fly, 100 IM (SC) or 200 IM (LC)
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 USA Swimming Account, and find out where you rank against all the other swimmers on your club team.
IM XTREME (IMX)
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: 400 Free (LC) or 500 Free (SC), 100 Back, 100 Breast, 100 Fly, 200 IM
13, 14, 15, 16, 17, & 18-year olds: 400 Free (LC) or 500 Free (SC), 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 and Hy-Tek. See the Power Points page for
more information and to use the Power Point Calculator.
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 My USA Swimming
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.
