USA IMX Program & PASA IMX Recognition:
IM Xtreme is a program that allows USA Swimming members to track their times (or coaches to track their team's times) against swimmers all across the nation! Just by swimming a specific program of events, you can see where you rank against your teammates, your region and yes, even across the USA!
The IMX ranking includes a series of five or six events at longer distances. Once a swimmer has completed the IMX program, they can find out where their IMX score ranks nationally, within their zone, within their LSC rank and on their 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
Rankings in the program are based on power points a system developed by USA Swimming. See the Power Points page for more information and to use the Power Point Calculator.
IMX scores are designed to help swimmers reach the next level by encouraging swimmers of all ages to compete in all strokes, rather than specializing in one stroke too early. This is consistent with PASA’s team and coaching philosophy focused on long-term team & swimmer development. The staff & team provide individuals & families with the resources needed to achieve their goals & to reach the highest levels in competitive swimming. We believe this starts with developing well-rounded & technically proficient athletes, who train & compete in all events.
Find Your National IMX Rank:
Swimmers can find their IMX ranking and track progress across the season. IMX score is included in the team Performance Report, posted to the Team Only section monthly. Swimmers can also use the USA Swimming website to Calculate IMX Score & Rank.
Note: An IMX 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 IMR/IMX purposes. A swimmer must complete all of the events in the same course (SCY or LCM) to have a score in that particular course.
