SOFLO Swimmers Head Talented Field For This Weekend’s SOFLO Distance IMX/IMR TYR Challenge


By Sharon Robb
PEMBROKE PINES, September 29, 2022—South Florida Aquatic Club and other Florida Gold Coast swimmers will get a chance to see how they stack up against the rest of the nation’s age group swimmers this weekend at the SOFLO Distance IMX/IMR TYR Challenge at Academic Village Pool.

The three-day meet begins Friday at 5:30 p.m. with the girls and boys 1,650-yard freestyle events. Warm-up is 4:30 p.m.

It continues on Saturday with two sessions beginning at 8:30 a.m. and concludes on Sunday, again with two sessions starting at 8:30 a.m. Warm-up is 7:30 a.m.

SOFLO heads the field with 174 (91 girls and 83 boys) swimmers in 879 individual events. Among other Florida Gold Coast teams in the field are Pine Crest, Metro Aquatics, Plantation Swim Team, Midtown Weston, Olympus Swim Club, North Miami Swim Team and Hialeah Swim Club. It is one of the most competitive fields ever assembled for the meet.

Up-and-coming swimmers, ages 10-and-under, will compete in the IMR (Ready) Challenge. All sessions are timed finals. Events are 100 individual medley, 100 freestyle, 50 backstroke, 50 breaststroke and 50 butterfly.

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

The IMR 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 IM Ready event at least once in an official meet, swimmers and parents can check their rankings on USA Swimming’s website.

The IMX (Xtreme) Challenge is the next step-up from the IMR competition. It includes a series of five events for 10-and-unders and 11-12 or six events for 13-and-over. Once swimmers complete the IMX program they can also see where their score ranks nationally, among their local LSC and own swim club.

IMX: 10-and-under events, 200 individual medley, 200 freestyle, 100 backstroke, 100 breaststroke, 100 butterfly.

IMX: 11-12, 200 individual medley, 500 freestyle, 100 backstroke, 100 breaststroke, 100 butterfly.

IMX: 13-and-over, 200 individual medley, 400 individual medley, 500 freestyle, 200 backstroke, 200 breaststroke, 200 butterfly.

The meet will be scored. Swimmers who complete all IMR events will receive an IMR score. Swimmers who complete all IMX will receive an IMX score. Swimmers who do not complete all required events will receive a score of zero.

Scoring for the various age groups will be based on the following points systems: 10-and-under Hytek Age Group Points; 11-14 Hytek Single Age Points; and 15-and-over Hytek Open Points.

Admission is $5 per person, per session. Heat sheets are available for free online at http://www.soflomeets.info/IMX and Meet Mobile.

Meet title and club sponsor TYR SOFLO is an American designer, developer and manufacturer of recreational and competitive swimwear, caps, goggles, triathlon gear and accessories and one of the nation’s top companies.
