inspiring youth through music

Jackie Robinson Family YMCA
Thunder Squad Drumline

This is not just a drumline...this is a lifestyle. The Jackie Robinson Family YMCA Community Drumline is committed to creating outstanding musicians in a powerful and positive environment through the movement of music that will instill the values of responsibility in our youth. We are dedicated to challenge, motivate and develop mature adults.


The Jackie Robinson Family YMCA Community Drumline is comprised of young percussionists who wish to extend their musicianship outside of the classroom. The members of this program are introduced to the Historical Black College/University (HBCU) style of marching and performing. The program offers members the opportunity to challenge their creativity, entertaining ability, discipline, leadership, and musicianship. The drumline consists of: drum majors, snare drummers, tenor drummers, bass drummers, and cymbal players.
