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!

Ball Boy at 2018 Delray Open receives Tennis Scholarship from Palm Beach resident and Brown University Alumni, Amin C. Koury
Youth tennis player, Jameson “Jamie” Corsillo, volunteered as Ball Boy at the 2018 Delray Beach Open, an ATP World Tour 250 tennis event, which took place on February 19-25, 2018 at the Delray Beach Tennis Center, received a tennis scholarship.
After learning that Jamie was not only an aspiring professional tennis player but also an honor roll student and National Junior Beta Club member, Amin C. Koury, of Palm Beach, awarded him with a tennis scholarship.
“I admire his academic and athletic excellence. Jamie has a unique combination of skill, talent, and toughness. With the right support, I think he can do some really great things in life, on and off the tennis court. I wish him and his family the best of luck.” stated Amin C. Koury, a former college tennis player and Brown University alumni.
Currently a freshmen at Pine Crest School in Ft Lauderdale, Jamie Corsillo was ranked #2 in the nation in the Boys 14 & under in 2016 & 2017. He competes in tournaments throughout the U.S. and still finds time to volunteer as a ball boy.
With the support of Tennis Coach Steve Longley and mentorship of Jeff Bingo, GM of Delray Beach Tennis Center, Jamie aspires to transition into ITF-International Tennis Federation Tournaments and compete throughout the world.
Jamie’s schedule consists of attending a full-time college preparatory school and trains several hours a day plus travels to junior tennis competitions throughout the U.S.
“Jamie is unique because he maintains a traditional eight hour daily school schedule. Most players on his level are homeschooled which allows more flexibility for conditioning, training and competing.” stated Tennis Coach Steve Longley.
“It is challenging to keep up with Jamies’ rigorous academic, tennis & travel schedule and keep him a balanced teenager. I desire to support my sons’ dream of becoming a professional tennis player while still prioritizing his academic commitments.” says mother, Meredith Corsillo.
Introduced to hitting tennis balls at the age of five years old, Jamie enjoys the mental challenge of the one-on- one competition. “I am very grateful to Mr. Koury for his generous tennis scholarship which will help pay for upcoming training and competitions.”
On March 19, 2018, Jamie plans to volunteer as Ball Boy at the upcoming Miami Open. He will then travel to Indian Wells, CA to play the 16’s Easter Bowl, a USTA National Level 1, and then head to Carsen, CA to compete in the International Spring Championships.
