Arena Club Aquatics is encouraging as many swimmers as possible
to compete in the IMX Challenge. Talk to your coach
about competing in all the proper events to earn your
IMX score. See the bottom of page to determine
which events you need to complete.
Program Description: Swimmers will
participate in a designated combination of five or six events and,
based on the power points scored for each of those swims, earn a
combined score that will be called the IMX Score. These combined
scores will be ranked by single ages with rankings and recognition
available on the USA Swimming website.
IMX Score: Using Hy-Tek’s
Single-Year Age Group Power Points, all USA Swimming registered
athletes earn an “IMX Score” based on the cumulative
point total of the combination of IMX events for their age level.
The overall IMX score, as well as the swimmer’s current best
score for each IMX event, appears on the athlete’s My USA
Swimming page for each season. As times in these events
improve, the swimmer’s IMX score is automatically updated.
In order to receive an IMX score, a swimmer must legally swim
each IMX event for their age level in a sanctioned meet at least
once during the season.
A swimmer’s times will count for the entire season-so if a
swimmer ages up during a season the IMX score on the My USA
Swimming page will show a score for his/her lower age group and
their new age group.
How to Participate
Participation in this program is easy. Using the data
available in the STAR database system, USA Swimming will
automatically compute scores and results for all athlete members.
Swimmers only need to compete in the IMX combination of events for
their age group and they will be part of the program.
