SOFLO swimmers will now find out how they stack up against other swimmers. Up-and-coming swimmers compete around the nation in the IMR Challenge in timed finals and when all results are turned in, the times are rated.

The USA Swimming-sanctioned meet is a fun, motivational meet to help young swimmers reach the next level in their swimming careers.

The IM (Ready) Challenge allows swimmers to see how they compare to other swimmers around the nation in their age group. Swimmers must compete in all the events required for their age group to establish a score.

Once a swimmer competes in each IMR Challenge event at least once in an official meet, swimmers and parents can check their rankings on USA Swimming’s website.
