About Us

Founded in 2001 by Dave Love, the concept originated as an effort to provide high quality coaching to young basketball players aspiring to improve their shooting ability. Since that time, The Love of the Game has evolved into a highly respected basketball program and popular place for players to hone their skills.

Shooting a basketball is fundamentally about muscle memory, and therefore Coach Love’s teachings are focused on retraining the muscles and building good shooting habits.

Coach Love’s methodology emphasizes simplicity while educating players how each part of the body affects the shooting process, and attempts to instill a simple shooting technique that can be easily repeated.

What people

Are Saying:

"Coach Love helped me build new habits that helped unlock the potential in my game, grow my confidence and make a significant jump as a player. He laid out a process that helped me improve 30% from the free throw line in one season."
Aaron Gordon
NBA PLAYER
"I worked with Dave Love starting after my rookie year in the NBA. Both my 3pt and FT percentages increased dramatically after working with Coach Love, and I learned how to diagnose and correct my own mistakes."
Elfrid Payton
NBA PLAYER
"Coach Love helped me improve 20% from the FT line in one season and set the stage for me becoming a reliable 3pt shooter. Not only does Dave Love teach you WHAT to do and WHY, but he also teaches you the drills to learn HOW to learn new habits. That was huge for me."
Dewayne Dedmon
NBA PLAYER
"In shooting workouts it’s not unusual for me to make 20+ 3pt shots in a row. My game shooting has improved from 39% to 59%. My FT shooting has improved from 65% to 89%. Thanks Coach Dave for helping me become a really good shooter."
Liam
STUDENT
"My son is a junior in high school and a passionate basketball player. It’s been one month since my son took Coach Love's training, and he has worked on it 30 out of the 31 days since. He has TRULY seen a difference with the consistency of his shot and in turn his confidence. Coach Love is an EXPERT shooting coach."
Ted
Father
"Dave Love is an investment that will receive results early and long term if the process is followed. I encourage the local basketball community to get started with Dave as early as possible. He is a true asset to the game and the lost art of shooting."
