Run an IMX Meet
|Top Previous Next|
IMX is USA Swimming's IM Xtreme Challenge program where swimmers are ranked on their performance in a combination of five or six events. Using MM's Combined Event feature, you can create these pentathlon and sextathlon setups with the appropriate events and score them using the HY-TEK Point System.
The Events and Age Groups for the IMX Extreme are:
•9 & under and 10 year olds: 200 free, 100 back, 100 breast, 100 fly, and 200 IM
•11 and 12 year olds: 400 Free (LC) or 500 Free (SC), 100 back, 100 breast, and 100 fly, and 200 IM
•13, 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18 year olds: 400 Free (LC) or 500 Free (SC), 200 back, 200 breast, 200 fly, 200 IM, and 400 IM
To setup your meet to produce IMX scoring, follow these steps:
•Add the above events to the database. You can have any order for the events and you can have events other than the above mixed in with the meet. The age range for each of the events does not matter. For example, for the 100 back, you can create a boys 12 & under 100 back or a 10 & under plus 11-12, or single year events such as 9-9, 10-10, 11-11, etc. Note that a 9 & under event would allow 8 and unders to participate. Setup the events to whatever is easiest and most efficient to run the meet.
•Go to Events and click Combined Events at the top. Add a Combined Event for each age group and gender. The Combined Event number can range from 1001 to 1099. Pick Pentathlon for the 12 & under events and Sextathlon for the 13 and Over events.
•After the Combined Event headers are added, select one at a time at the top of the Combined Events window and drag over or double click over the appropriate 5 or 6 events (from left to right). These Sub Events can be in any order.
•In Setup / Entry Scoring Preferences, use the combo box at the bottom to select HY-TEK Single Year Age Group Points for the Special Point System.
•During or after the meet, you go to Reports / Scoring, click the Combined Events radio button near the top and that displays the Combined Event headers. Select any combination of the headers and create your report. A spreadsheet will be created for each Combined Event with the times and points for each event and the IMX point total.
•After the meet is over, you can print award labels for the top scorers for each Combined Event. Select the events and select the Combined Event Award Labels tab at the bottom.
