We want the registrants in our programs to be aware that when they participate in certain activities, there is a natural element of risk of injury which each participant must assume. As a loss prevention measure and risk management standard, participants are required to sign an Acknowledgment of Risk form for certain classes and activities. If a participant is under 18 years of age, the signature of a parent or legal guardian is necessary. It is recommended that participants in program/classes involving strenuous activity consult with their physician prior to the start of their program/class.

Membership Access ChangeFingerprint Scanner

On Sept. 6, 2022, the Kirksey Recreation Center will begin the process to phase out membership cards for entry and instead use Rec Tag. Rec Tag helps to facilitate ease of entry into our facilities and helps prevent fraud. In order to use Rec Tag, you simply place your finger on a reader. The system, which utilizes the technology of biometrics, takes an image of your finger, converts the image into a unique numerical value, and immediately discards the image. The numerical value is recalled when you use Rec Tag to enter the Recreation Center. Rec Tag does not store fingerprints.

Members with existing cards will be able to scan their card or switch to Rec Tag. We are no longer printing membership cards. If you don’t want to use Rec Tag, you can simply carry and show a photo ID that matches the name identified with your membership. Contact the Kirksey Recreation Center front desk for assistance with this process.

Frequently asked questions

Kirksey Recreation Center “Rec Tag” Check-In

Our new membership access solution saves time and money! It also cuts down on fraud in order to help keep you safe. To enroll in this new system, your fingerprint is used to create a unique mathematical code (UMC) which gets linked to your membership. When you use the scanner the next time, the system matches your fingerprint with the UMC on file and confirms your membership. 

These FAQs were written by a concerned Livonia citizen and Kirksey Recreation Center member who volunteered their efforts to help fellow citizens make an informed decision.

No! Our membership access solution does not save/store any images of your fingerprint. Instead, it takes the image and converts it into a proprietary-encrypted template, so it is just a mathematical representation. The initial fingerprint scan image is deleted immediately.
