Track your lengths, speed and strokes as you record each swim and beat your personal bests using SWIMTAG!
To use SWIMTAG, simply request a band as you check in for your next swim at any Tees Active pool!
Our team will use your Tees Active Leisure Card or Activ8 mywellness wristband to check you in and connect the SWIMTAG bracelet to your account. Then go swimming! Once you have completed your swim, simply hand the band back in at reception.
For each swim you complete using SWIMTAG, the system will record data from your swim and compare it with previous swims to help you see your progress and much more.
After your first time using SWIMTAG, you’ll need to either click on the venue link below for the pool you swam at or click here and register your SWIMTAG account. Your card ID is the number on your Tees Active Leisure Card or your Activ8 mywellness band. Then download the free SWIMTAG app!
Now you’re all set up, SWIMTAG will automatically connect each swim you do using the wristband or your smart watch to your SWIMTAG account and you can see your progress in real time as well as take part in fun competitions and challenges set by us!
The SWIMTAG system tracks the number of lengths you complete, split times, stroke type and stroke rate. You can then keep track of key swim statistics such as average pace, distance per stroke, calorie burn and rest percentage.
The SWIMTAG homepage keeps you up to date with your latest progress and achievements, with every swim recorded we will notify you of new personal bests, competitions and Tees Active swim challenge updates!
By taking advantage of this free to use system, you can actively see your progress and compete against yourself or against others.
Our pools have plenty of SWIMTAG bands available, however once you have registered and created your account, SWIMTAG will also record swims directly from your smart watch.
Our regular swim challenges will all be ran through SWIMTAG, as this way we can easily keep track of everyone who takes part and your progress in the challenge. This means no more paper forms to complete!
You will also be able to take part in venue and UK wide competitions! You will be able to see your ranking on your account, on this webpage and in our venues meaning you will know if someone has taken you off the top spot and can head back to the pool to fight for your place!
There are also competitions that SWIMTAG offer that are all free to take part in and can be found through the SWIMTAG hub. Be aware though, you can only take part in one challenge at a time so time management is key if you want to do your own challenges as well as ours!
Take part in Tees Active swim challenges easily. SWIMTAG will update your progress as you move along the map!
Competitions pitch you against other swimmers at your local pool or across the country, swim the set distance and stroke type and SWIMTAG will post your best time to the leaderboard.
Create a SWIMTAG goal to track a swim stat over a fixed time period, either a total or average value can be monitored to push yourself further in the pool.
Setup a Personal Best for a specific stroke and distance and SWIMTAG will monitor your swims for a new PBs. You will be notified whenever a new time is set so you can keep tabs on your performance.
Choose to follow a training plan and let SWIMTAG keep track of your progress.
Share your progress and see how your friends are progressing!
You can find Tees Active’s active swim competitions and challenges on your home screen within your SWIMTAG account, on this webpage or in our venues!

The Derwentwater is the 10th longest lake in the Lake District and is surrounded by a number of scenic hills (known locally as fells) including Cabfells and Walla Crag. Your swim starts at the south end of the lake, passing by St Herbert's Island, which sits in the centre of the lake, before heading North to the top end close to the town of Keswick.
You have from 25th October till 12th November to swim 4633m.
The small city of North Pole is situated to the South East of Fairbanks, Alaska. It was given the name in 1952 after the area was bought by a development company hoping to attract toy manufacturers.
Today the local post office receives hundreds and thousands of letters to Santa Claus each year and tourists flock to the area to visit Santa Claus House and the Arctic Bar.
Your challenge is to zig zag your way through the town, starting at Hotel North Pole, you'll swing by Santa Clause house (don't forget to wave to Santa as you pass), then past the city's three schools before head North, finishing up at North Pole plaza on Santa Claus Lane.
You will have from 19th November till 18th December to swim 4987m!
