The UMLY swim team coaching staff prepares the swimmers to become well rounded athletes who can swim any event.  We feel this approach will create well rounded swimmers who will be prepared for any event as their bodies change and grow.  The USA Swimming IMX program is a great motivational tool to support this approach.

         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 our zone (which is the Eastern Zone), within our Local Swimming Committee (or "LSC," which is Mid-Atlantic Swimming), and on the UMLY team.

         Rankings in the program are based on power points, a system developed by USA Swimming and Hy-Tek.  See the Power Points page of the USA Swimming website for more information and to use the Power Point Calculator.


         Participation in the 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.
