Congratulations to Caitlin O'Neill (3592), Mariah Hu (1451), and Nathan Hu (3051) for their scores in the IM Xtreme Rankings!

Right now those three are the only three athletes on our entire club to complete the IMX Challenge, and we need over 20% to qualify for the next club level! 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 our club.

We want all swimmers in the Silver group and higher at all age groups to be qualified in the IM XTREME! 

Here are the required events: 

10 and unders: 100 Free, 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Fly, 100 IM (SC) or 200 IM (LC)
11-12-year olds: 200 Free, 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Fly, 100 IM (SC) or 200 IM (LC)
13-18-year olds: 200 Free, 100 Back, 100 Breast, 100 Fly, 200 IM

10 and unders: 200 Free, 100 Back, 100 Breast, 100 Fly, 200 IM
11-12-year olds: 400 Free (LC) or 500 Free (SC), 100 Back, 100 Breast, 100 Fly, 200 IM
13-18-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 and Hy-Tek. See the Power Points page for more information and to use the Power Point Calculator. Even if you don't pick up a qualifying time in an event you can still score points in it! 



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 Deck Pass Account, then compete in each required event, at a sanctioned meet, at least once in a season. It just needs to be a legal, non-DQ'd swim! 
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.
