Coaches - Drumline

Save to Favorites



A committed coaching team is needed to support Onyx (Boys/Girls ages 12 to 25) - the fledgling Drumline of SoulPhamm. Tryouts for this team will begin in June and then their season will run from September 2024 to June 2025.

The Drumline often attracts young people who are at the very start of their musical careers - having no experience in drumming. Occasionally, we also attract students who have experience with other instruments who want to learn the collegiate drumline style. Coaches will have the autonomy to influence the team's style, adding Jersey and NYC flavor to their routines.

Practices would be on Saturdays between the hours of 12pm and 4pm (and coaches can self-select a shift within this frame or elect to be present for the entire practice). There is already a seasoned virtual coach on the team (currently serving on Mondays from 7pm-8pm) and additional virtual sessions are also encouraged, but not required. Our current gym location is currently based Newark, New Jersey but willingness to travel to Rahway or Edison are also important.

The team is expected to include between five and ten young people and is expected to be fairly busy starting in the spring of 2025 - often being invited to perform in high visibility events such as NBA games and parades.

Significant experience in a drumline is required. Coaching experience is not but the ability to guide a beginner is critical. We will support you as you grow. There are also opportunities for referral to paid opportunities after six months of service. Interested candidates are asked to send a note to outlining their experience.

About SoulPhamm Inc


613 Washington Boulevard, Suite 1129, Jersey City, NJ 07310, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of young people by providing unique artistic and athletic experiences and performances, and to assist them in achieving the highest standards of professionalism through the development of discipline, skill, confidence, cooperation, leadership, responsibility and character.


Our vision is to promote virtue, equity, unity, justice, faith, charity and a sense of common purpose and brotherhood among all people with an emphasis on the development and advancement of young people through education, athletics, service and the arts.

SoulPhamm was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in the state of New Jersey on June 25, 2021 and is the "birth-child" of Coach Luis ("Lou") and Dr. Leisa Herrera ("Mz. Doc"). The organization exists to provide training to young people in a variety of sports and performing arts and unique opportunities to display those talents through competition and performance. By integrating mentoring, life skills, opportunities for community service and academic enrichment to the athletic/artistic program, we help make our scholar-athletes as well-rounded as possible, capable of meeting and overcoming any challenges they are faced with. Although Coach Lou passed away suddenly in January 2021, the official launch of SoulPhamm was held on June 26, 2021, which coincided with his birthday weekend. SoulPhamm will recognize its own founding, as well as the achievements of our young people every year on the fourth Saturday of June, as a tribute to the life and legacy of Coach Lou.
