Coach Love and The Love of the Game have a tremendous talent in the evaluation and instruction of shooting. Regardless of a players age or ability, they understand how to improve a complex skill in a simple and fun manner. The combination of experience and genuine care for players will provide a significant advantage to anyone who wants to improve their game.

The Love of the Game shooting clinics offer a great opportunity for New Brunswick players to learn from one of the best in the business. The quality of instruction and breakdown of each player’s shooting technique is beneficial for both the athletes and local coaches in attendance. As a not-for-profit organization, we also benefit from our partnership with The Love of the Game allowing us to then reinvest back into our other programming as well.

A Few Words About Our Clinics

The Love of the Game Shooting Clinics are based on the work NBA Shooting Coach Dave Love does with NBA and college players. The clinics will be run by a highly trained regional coach in a non-competitive situation to allow all players to develop at the rate they need to attain success. Only those clinics in the Signature Series will be conducted by Dave Love himself. Players will learn the mechanics of their current shot and be presented with analysis of what they are doing that is successful and detrimental.

  • Young basketball players of all skill levels
  • Players who struggle with consistency
  • Players who want to understand how their shot works
  • Players who have big goals, but their shot is holding them back

What You’ll Learn

The Player’s shooting mechanics will be restructured to fall within the parameters of the Love of the Game Program. Each player will learn what each part of their body should be doing during their shot, and be given an explanation on why these mechanics are important. Coaches will provide a checklist of fundamentals for the player to use to begin to understand their shot mechanics and how to recognize and correct mistakes.

During our clinics, players will learn the same techniques as the pros. Our coaches teach proven techniques and pass on methods allowing participants to continue coaching themselves on proper techniques long after the clinic.

Players will receive pre-clinic bonus content preparing them to maximize their time in our clinics. They’ll also receive post-clinic content and tools to further reinforce positive practice behaviours afterward

What People Are Saying About Us

PARENT

Grateful for the opportunity to have a clinic like this made available to small communities, especially in Northern Alberta


TESTIMONIAL

Really easy to host a clinic – just let him know you are interested and he sends all the links, letters, posters, etc. Kids register online and so you never have to process money or paperwork. Jamie was an excellent presenter and the 3 hours flew by.


PARENT

The coaching connects at exactly the right level with the players.


PLAYER

Jamie did an amazing job working with the group of kids that we had. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient and does a great job connecting with the players. Thank you Jamie!


COACH

Coach Love was extremely approachable and down to earth.The first visit was only 5 days, but what a difference in my son’s shot. Upon returning to his local head coach, the difference was noticed immediately. The way Coach Love breaks the process down and begins to rebuild is a very personal experience.
