FOUNDER AND CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER
Hi, I’m Coach Derrick Lang.
I’m a Professional Basketball Player and I’m the owner of the DLang Elite Basketball Training Camps.
I’ve been passionate about the game of basketball since I was 9. Since I first began dribbling and shooting, to starting my first real game, to traveling all over the world to play, my love for the game never changed.
Basketball gave me everything. I’ve played in different countries like Brazil, Mexico, Germany, and now, Switzerland – where I call home. I can’t imagine where I would be if I didn’t pick up the ball. I’m so grateful for everything that’s ever happened and now, I know it’s time for me to give back.
That’s why I became a Swiss Basketball Certified Youth Coach and a Certified Personal Trainer. I started the DLang Elite Basketball Training Camps to help young players get better at the game they love.
I know what this sport can give them and what opportunities lie ahead of them. I want them to get the chance to experience the joys of playing basketball.
But most important of all, I want to leave a lasting positive impact on their lives. I approach every child with a holistic and proven method for training. This method translates to creating a well-adjusted and productive individual on and off the court.
Young players won’t only learn the game of basketball but also learn the values that make them incredible human beings.
