USA Swimming is very pleased
to announce an exciting new program … the I.M.
Xtreme Challenge. The IMX Challenge is a motivational
program whereby swimmers will be scored and ranked nationally on
their performance in a combination of five or six events. The
purpose of the program is to promote versatility in age group
swimming while advocating greater participation and development
across a range of events that are integral to long term success in
Following is a series of key points detailing
information about this new program:
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.
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
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 (example below).

We strongly encourage all swimmers to create a FREE
web account. This will allow access their personal My
USA Swimming page! If a swimmer has already swum the event
combo for his/her age level, the IMX score and ranking now appears
in a special section of the swimmer’s My USA
Swimming page. The only place to access an overall IMX Score,
as well as the swimmer’s current best score for each IMX
event, is on that swimmer’s personal My USA Swimming
page. Other features of this special page include a display of
personal best times and corresponding power points, a list of meets
participated in, a graphical display of times info, seasonal and
lifetime best comparisons, in addition other member only
features. Click here to create a free web
