May 1, 2015—-South Florida Aquatic Club, the largest club entered with 134 swimmers, will host the IMX Challenge Friday and Saturday at Academic Village Swimming Pool.

Swimmers will not only get some good racing, but will also get a chance to see how they stack up against the rest of the nation’s age group swimmers in the USA Swimming program.

The IMX (Xtreme) Challenge, sanctioned by the Florida Gold Coast, is a series of five or six events. Once swimmers complete the IMX program they can see where their score ranks nationally, among their local LSC and own swim club.

The meet gets under way Friday at 5:30 p.m. with the opening session of four boys and girls events including the open 200-meter individual medley, 10-and-under 200 freestyle, 11-and-over 400 freestyle and 13-and-over 400 individual medley.

On Saturday, two sessions are scheduled. The first session at 8 a.m. is the 12-and-under 100 butterfly, 100 backstroke, 100 breaststroke and 200 freestyle relay.

The second session at 12:30 p.m. is the 13-and-over 200 butterfly, 200 backstroke, 200 breaststroke and 200 freestyle relay.
