    2019 SUPER COACHES CLINIC PRESENTERS

    Dave Love - NBA Shooting Coach

    Basketball has been a lifelong passion for Dave Love. The Calgary native began his career in the sport at the age of 10 when he picked up a ball for the first time. This led to a three-decade odyssey.

    In 2001, Dave began to teach a program that would afford basketball players of all ages and skill levels the opportunity to improve their shooting ability. The Love of the Game was born.
    Dave’s reputation and the success of the program preceded him. A flood of opportunities were created due to the success of the Love of the Game. Dave was offered the position of Shooting Coach with a university Men’s Basketball Team for the 2005 season.

    Dave held the position for nine seasons, and this allowed him to work with such players as Boris Bakovic (Canadian Junior National Team member, all-time leading scorer in Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) history) and Matt Letkeman (Canadian Junior National Team member).



    Continued hard work and success eventually led to recognition from the best league in the world. The National Basketball Association’s Phoenix Suns hired Dave as a Shooting Consultant for the 2009-10 season. Dave worked exclusively with Louis Amundson, and the impact was immediately recognizable. Louis’s free throw percentage improved by 11% over the previous season, and he also achieved career highs in field goal and free throw percentage.

    This opportunity spurred several others including working with both Grant Hill and DeShawn Stevenson. The Oklahoma City Thunder became interested in Dave’s success and hired him as their Shooting Consultant for their D-League team, the Tulsa 66ers, in 2010-11. His work with players Ryan Reid, Jerome Dyson and Elijah Millsap led to his promotion as Shooting Consultant for the Thunder.

    In 2013 Coach Love was hired by the Cleveland Cavaliers to work with fellow Canadian Tristan Thompson. Thompson became the first player in NBA history to switch is dominant shooting hand, and under Coach Love’s guidance increased his career-high from the free-throw line from 60% to 69%.

    Dave is currently working with players from the Orlando Magic.

    While working with NBA teams and players has given Dave wonderful experiences and has allowed him to work with some of the best players in the world, his true calling and passion lies in working with young basketball players and helping them improve their shooting skills.

    The Love of the Game now runs clinics across North America and averages well over 1,000 participants a year. This has also allowed Dave to help assist local community basketball groups to raise thousands of dollars through his clinics over the years.

    Dave has run clinics for Basketball BC, Basketball Saskatchewan, Basketball Manitoba, Basketball New Brunswick, the University of Calgary, Mount Royal University, the University of Lethbridge, UPEI, the University of Regina and Basketball New South Wales, Australia.

    NBA Shooting Consultant Achievements:
    • Orlando Magic (2014 – 2018)
    • Cleveland Cavaliers (2013 – 14)
    • Oklahoma City Thunder D-League team (2010 – 11)
    • Phoenix Suns (2009 – 10)
    • Guest Coach at Canadian National team men’s training camps
    • Managed clinics around the world for over 10 years

    • I was at the super coaching seminar this past Saturday.  Thanks so much, the seminar was awesome.
    • I really enjoyed the clinic - very interesting and very well organized.
    • Thanks again for all the hard work you and your team did for the Super Clinic this wknd!  It was great!  Super idea to combine the various UW/UM clinics into one, makes a whole lot of sense!
    • I really enjoyed the Sat morning sessions I attended - picked up/was reminded of a few games/drills that I'll be able to use with the kids at the next practice!
    • I thought the two days was superb. What a great idea!  You did a wonderful job greeting us first thing on Friday and it just stayed great the whole weekend. I would challenge any city in North America to do better.
    • Thanks so much for the hard work. The fact that it looked easy and went off without a hitch proves to me how hard you worked to make it that way.
    • It was a great clinic. Thanks for your organization and hard work.
    • Awesome clinic! I learned a ton.  Thanks for putting the time in.
    • The clinic was excellent, lots of very inspirational speakers with lots of good ideas. Thanks!
    • Thanks very much for having the clinic I found it very useful and I have used some of the drills already and the boys have really enjoyed them.
    • The clinic was great. SAG is a great day to have it as the clinic is a very attractive option on this day. I enjoyed the presenters and learned a lot of great drills. I am also happy the sessions will be online as I'm sure I will be watching some of them again to remind myself of some of the details.
    • Fantastic job!  Can't wait for the video so I can make sense of my notes.
    • Great experience overall.....WELL DONE!
    • Great job on the entire day - I walked away with new tips and tricks along with some validation of what I'm doing with my team is the right stuff. I look forward to the future clinics and I'm really excited to be part of the coaching community again. Thanks so much for a great day!
    • I think that the majority of the clinic was fantastic and that it was well put together. I definitely learned a TON of stuff which I will try to incorporate into the upcoming season and try to keep as a coach for future teams as well.
    • I thought this clinic was an excellent opportunity to improve my understanding of the game and advance my abilities as a coach. There were so many drills and ideas that would be useful teaching points at practice that I don't think I will be able to stuff them all into this season, however I will try.
    • Overall a FANTASTIC 2 days!!  I am a beginning coach (1 spring season experience 8-year-old boys - now coaching winter) and even the higher level clinics had something I could take from it. Great presenters, great location, great snacks and lunches and VALUABLE information! Well done!
    • Overall it was an excellent seminar with lots of information.
    • Overall...Excellent Observing practices and talking to the local University coaches was valuable to me.  Keep this!
    • Thanks very much, I came out of the weekend with a lot!
    • Thanks, overall it was a great experience!
    • The clinic was fabulous... easily the best run and most informative I have ever been to. In fact, as a first-time basketball coach it was actually quite inspiring. Well done!
    • The clinic was well-organized and well worth attending. Good job!
    • This clinic was absolutely fantastic. You absolutely have to run
    • it again, during a tournament weekend, with all those experienced
    • University coaches!!! I cannot say enough about how good it was. I also
    • coach hockey and soccer and you can relate a lot of those drills to other sports.
