IM Ready & IM Xtreme
IMX is a motivational program from USA Swimming that allows swimmers across the nation to compare themselves to the thousands of other athletes in their age group. All you have to do is swim a combination of events, at least one time per season, and USA Swimming will automatically give you your ranking!
An IMX or IM Ready score is 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) and at the same age 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. PCST Age Group 1 and Age Group 2 swimmers should strive to complete IM Ready each season.
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)
IM XTREME (IMX)
The next step is IM Xtreme (IMX). The IMX ranking includes a series of five or six events at longer distances. PCST Age Group 2 and Junior group swimmers should strive to complete IM Xtreme each season.
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
