Lang’s focus is beyond basketball development and wants to create an environment based on the principles he’s learned and implemented throughout his professional career and personal life. 

"It’s a top priority of mine to give back to the next generation,” Lang said. “My goal is to provide educational opportunities for our local youth, as well as a safe place to come, play, dream and succeed. The kids in Gaston County and surrounding areas now have an opportunity to go to a safe indoor location that encourages a physically active lifestyle and exemplifies the Play like a BOSS mantra of Built on Self Success. When you practice a sport, or simply become more physically active, you can learn a lot about yourself, about your friends, and participate in building a stronger community."


  • Entry fee is $25 per contest or $45 for all contests

  • Entry is free for spectators

  • The event starts at 1 p.m. 

  • Winners receive $250, a trophy, and bragging rights

  • Vendors will be on site

  • Vendor opportunities are available 

K.L.S.C. is located at 710 E. Catawba Street, Belmont, Suite E.


Kris Lang is a former Mr. North Carolina Basketball and a McDonald’s All American team member. He played for the University of North Carolina as a 4-year starter where he was on the ACC All-Freshman team as well as a starter on the 1999-2000 Final Four team. After 16 years of playing professional basketball in Europe and South America, Lang returned home to Gastonia to create opportunities for students in his hometown who need a place to learn, grow, and develop. 


K.L.S.C. is a refurbishing project from an old Carolina textile mill to the brand-new into a brand-new indoor basketball facility and high-end sports complex. The newly remodeled gymnasium has been decked out in fresh Carolina blue and red paint with new basketball flooring and rims along with the forthcoming all-access fitness center.  At center court there is the logo KLSC “Play Like a BOSS”, Kris Lang’s signature statement. On the wall along the sideline are in-game action murals and with motivational quotes sprinkled throughout the facility, one being “Get Better Today”.  Another, “Play Hard, Play Smart, and Play Together”, was a favorite quote from Kris Lang’s former UNC Head Coach Dean Smith. Coach Smith recited this encouragement to his players as they crossed the blue line before each Carolina Basketball game.

K.L.S.C. provides an inclusive and welcoming environment for area youth, families, and gym goers to hit their health and fitness milestones, regardless of their experience level. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, this new complex brings a professional level of training to all members. An afterschool program hosts youth transported from local schools. The facilities after school program offers homework support, encourages physical activity and is open to all youth in the local area.

Arden McLaughlin

Arden McLaughlin created Definita because she saw how so many people with whom she came in contact had difficulty defining who they were. She saw what made them stand out in the marketplace, but they could not. Through her natural gift of storytelling, she could see the components that made businesses and people stand out and truly meet the goals they wanted to meet. Arden also builds relationships. She ensures anyone on her team knows she leads with truth and integrity. It's through these relationships that she can effectively tell her clients' stories. Definita is more than a PR agency. It's a way to build connectivity. It's a firm dedicated to sharing what you love to do with the world. It's a methodology honed and perfected throughout Arden's many years of practicing public relations. She's excited to bring that methodology to every person with whom she works.
