Our Atlantis IMX meet is hosted typically the first weekend in November.  For the 2020-2021 Season, our IMX meet will be held November 6-8, 2020.

IMX stands for IM (individual medley) Extreme and IMR stands for IM Ready. During each season whenever you swim an event the time is registered on the USA swimming site.  Different times score different "power points".  For each event (distance and stroke) swimmers are ranked locally and nationally depending on these power point scores. Once you have swam each event at least once at an official meet, you can log-in to your Deck Pass Account and find out where you rank against all other swimmers on your Club team.

IM Ready (IMR)

The first step in the IMX Challenge is IM Ready. To Get "IM Ready", swimmers compete in a series of 5 events at shorter distances.

10 and under: 100 Free, 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50Fly and 100 IM

11 and 12 year olds: 200 Free, 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Fly and 100 IM

13 - 18 years: 200 Free, 100 Back, 100 Breast, 100 Fly and 200 IM 

*** you do not need to complete the IM Ready program to participate in the IM Xtreme. It is simply a stepping stone.

 

Ready to move forward? The next step is IM Xtreme (IMX). The IMX ranking includes a series of 5 or 6 events at longer distances. Once you have completed the IMX program, you can find out where your IMX score ranks nationally within your zone, with your  LSC rank and on your club.
