    Summary Information:
    The Kaltjiti (Fregon) 'Youth Recreation Activities - Motocross Program' Shared Responsibility Agreement (SRA) was agreed between the Kaltjiti Indigenous Community, the Commonwealth Government and the South Australian Government on 28 June 2007. The SRA states that its purpose is to create more activities in order to divert young people away from substance abuse and towards education. Specifically, this SRA provides funding to expand the existing motocross program which, the SRA emphasises, can be used by both male and female young people.

    Shared Responsibility Agreements are agreements between governments and Indigenous communities to provide discretionary funding in return for community obligations. The new arrangements developed from an initiative of the Council of Australian Governments and replace the previous ATSIC system of funding. For more information see 'Shared Responsibility Agreement' below.
    Detailed Information:

    This SRA provides funding for two motorbikes, safety equipment, track maintenance and training for a motocross safety program.

    Shared Responsibilities

    The community will:
  • Agree to provide an insurance policy for the program;
  • Be responsible for the maintenance of a dirt bike track and develop instructions on track use;
  • Implement the community's motocross rules and safety program; and
  • Hold the Finke Desert Race, and support a 'No school, no motocross' policy.

    Families and individuals wishing to participate in the motocross program will participate in the program's safety courses, and will comply with the maintenance of the motorbikes. Individuals will also commit to not taking illicit substances, and adhere to the 'No school, no motocross policy'.

    The Commonwealth Government, through the Department of Communications, Information Technology and the Arts, will provide $24,000 for motorbikes, while the Department for Health and Ageing will provide $15,738 for a safety course.
