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 rather be. I’m so grateful for everything, now it’s time for me to give back.
I became a Swiss Basketball Certified Youth Coach and a Certified Personal Trainer. for this reason I founded DLang Elite Basketball Training Camps to help youth improve and create memorable experiences.
After everything I want to leave a lasting positive impact on their lives. With this mindset, I approach every child with a holistic and proven method for training. This translates to forming a well-adjusted and productive individual on and off the court.
