Tell us about Brent Wellman Junior Tennis Director of Delray Champions Junior Tennis & High Performance – what should we know?
I direct the Delray Champions Junior Program at the Delray Tennis Center off of Atlantic Avenue. What separates our program from the rest is stroke efficiency and attention to details. Little things truly matter! Fortunately, I’ve been mentored by some high-level coaches in both basketball and tennis. In tennis working with Steve Smith and Vic Braden was like being in tennis classroom held on the court. Tennis is a game of skill and it’s very important you learn the skills, Sometimes coaches fool students into thinking they just to have fun and hit some balls and maybe eventually you will become a top tournament player. Don’t get me wrong, recreation tennis is fine. But if you want to be a competitive player don’t be fooled by coaches who don’t help young players transition from an inefficient technique. Becoming a tournament player isn’t everyone’s goal, but if you want to learn to hit the ball better, we want to help you!
