Grande Prairie Family Centered Coalition
Cool Aid Society
Before and After School Care
Cool Aid Society operates two drop-in centers (Hillside and Southside) that offer friendship, guidance, and support to youth in grades 1 to 12. Cool Aid Society believes that there is a need for youth to have opportunities to participate in healthy leisure activities that are positive alternatives to risky behaviors and increase their resiliency; there is a need for youth to have information about a variety of social issues and appropriate referrals to services, and there is a need for youth to have a location that is relatively independent of structured influences where their decisions primarily affect outcomes.

Childcare, Gymnastics & Cheerleading
Our Kindergym program is a government-licensed pre-school program. The children in our program receive gymnastics instruction in our fully equipped gymnastics facility as well as classroom activities. Early participation in gymnastics enables children to enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle for a lifetime. Children will be equipped with physical, mental, social, and emotional abilities gained through the sport of gymnastics.
Our facility also offers many different recreational and competitive programs ranging from artistic gymnastics, trampoline and tumbling, fitness, pre-school, adult gymnastics, urban gymnastics (parkour), cheerleading, as well as dryland training for hockey, freestyle skiing, and other sports. We also offer gymnastics programs to many schools and community groups. Our programs serve a large range of ages and abilities, includes babies that are walking, all the way up to adults, and everything in between. We offer private lessons and classes for children that are disabled both physically and mentally.
