The UFV men’s basketball program is teaming with NBA shooting coach Dave Love to offer a shooting clinic for young basketball players.
Love is the shooting coach for the Orlando Magic and has worked with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Oklahoma City Thunder and Phoenix Suns in the NBA. In addition, he was a CIS shooting coach for nine seasons. Love has worked with several NBA players including Magic players Aaron Gordon, Elfrid Payton and Dewayne Dedmon, Canadians Tristan Thompson and Anthony Bennett, and Louis Amundson.
Love’s local shooting clinic runs Saturday, April 23 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Envision Athletic Centre. Cost is $49.95 per player. Space is limited and these clinics typically sell out quickly. Online sign-up is available by clicking here.
In Love’s clinic, players will learn what each part of their body should be doing, but also why they should be doing it. They will learn how positive power affects their shot and some drills that Coach Love does with NBA players to develop solid mechanics. This clinic is for all basketball players ages 11 and older, boys and girls.
Coaches who would like to volunteer to help at the clinic can contact Coach Love at firstname.lastname@example.org.
