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.
“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.”
-Bret Brielmaier, Brooklyn Nets Assistant Coach
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 an easy checklist of fundamentals for the player to be able to begin to understand their shot mechanics and how to recognize and correct mistakes.
“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.”
-Carolyn Peppin, Executive Director of Basketball New Brunswick
Players will be told stories of NBA players and the specific work they have done, and how it relates to the work players at the clinic are doing. All clinics will also receive bonus content after the clinic, direct to their email inbox, from NBA Shooting Coach Dave Love.
“The Love of the Game Shooting Clinics are specifically designed to give players what they need to improve without over-complicating the message. This way, each player who attends can actually go back home, work on their game and know when/how to make adjustments. This will ensure that they will become better shooters and get the results they are looking for.”
